As a Notary Signing Agent, I am responsible for keeping up with laws and regulations that affect the loan closing business. The biggest change to those regulations in the past several years just went into effect earlier this month. It is called the Truth in Lending (TILA) Real Estate Settlement Act (RESPA) Disclosure rules, usually shortened to TRID, and will be administered by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which is now the one federal agency in charge of consumer finance.
Last week, I took an online class from Notary2Pro on TRID and I passed their exam with a perfect score. So, I am now Certified and ready to handle real estate closings that involve TRID documents.
I am preparing a page of resources about TRID and will likely post some articles here about it as I see the new documents involved being used in actual closings.
I also passed the Equity National Title training and exam to be TRID certified by them, as well.
