“FirstFunding is delighted to host these educational sessions with our long time training colleague at Morf Media, Inc., Ginger Bell,” said Jim Dunkerley, CEO of First Funding. “Participants will gain the knowledge to identify the impact and the changes that need to be made to be in compliance with the TILA-RESPA integrated rule. This includes training on lender workflow, processes, procedures, and how pricing of loan products will be affected.”
Become the Expert and Know What’s Changing
TILA-RESPA consolidates four existing disclosures for closed-end credit transactions secured by real property. The forms being replaced by TILA-RESPA are:
- Good Faith Estimate (GFE)
- Initial Truth-in-Lending Disclosure
- HUD-1 Settlement Statement
- Final Truth-in-Lending Disclosure
In their place, TILA-RESPA mandates the use of two disclosures: a three-page loan estimate and a five-page closing disclosure. The free Train-the-Trainer events will provide a step-by-step approach to help trainers and company managers know about the mandated changes while ensuring their loan origination software is up-to-date.
“Everyone is busy now but if your organization or your partners and clients haven’t prepared for TILA-RESPA, it’s time,” said Ginger Bell, education specialist and SVP Learning at Morf Media, Inc. “Together with our partners in education, FirstFunding and Flagstar, Morf Media’s Train the Trainer events are designed to help professionals become the expert and rapidly move through any issues. We will help partners identify affected products, departments, and staff as well as the business process, operational, and technology changes that will be necessary for meeting TILA-RESPA enterprise-wide compliance.”
