TRID is the TILA / RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule which is designed to help consumers understand the mortgage and real estate buying process more thoroughly.
How to most industry people see it? TRID is dirt spelled backwards :) It’s a pretty big change and it’s causing delays. We’re annoyed.
45 is the new 30. That’s what everyone’s saying about an escrow timeline. In order to close in 30 days, everything has to flow perfectly. Now be honest, how often does that happen???
In this perfect world…Escrow needs to get the fee sheet over the day the lender requests it.
Furthermore, disclosures need to go out immediately, and the appraisal needs to be ordered pronto. Before loan docs, well pretty much before anything, a CD (Closing Disclosure) needs to get out to the borrower. The best lenders right now are providing this digitally, and those who aren’t (*ahem* B of A, Chase, Wells) have a closing timeframe of 60+ days, which is completely unacceptable. Every time something big changes, a new Closing Disclosure must go out and there is a 3 day mandatory waiting period. There’s no more room for sloppy documents and slow turnaround for paperwork. Having a good real estate team (title, escrow, lender, and Realtor) who all communicate is crucial more than ever with these TRID guidelines.
Delays can be caused by any one or more of these simple elements within the escrow process:
- HOA dues
- HOA transfer fees
- HOA move in/out fee
- Sewer lateral
- Roof inspection
- Pest inspection
- Security deposit transfers
- Insurance Certification costs
- Prorated rents
- Seller rent backs
- Mobile signing fees
- POA preparation fees
- Subordination prep fees
- Draw deed fees
- Buyer paid Realtor commission
- Repair credits
- Carbon monoxide detectors missing
Inspections should be done as soon as possible to avoid any of the above issues. Changing lenders in the middle of the deal now undoes the entire timeline and forces everyone to start over. You need to interview your lenders and have your team in place BEFORE escrow starts. Call us if you need referrals for competent lenders here in Orange County.
If you’re already in escrow with another team, make sure your agent orders Home Warrantee, all disclosures and inspections right away, and is in good touch with the lender. These are all standard practice already with the AskAngie team.
As a seller, you can help too. Right when you open escrow, call the management company right away with the credit card info and order your HOA documents. They are famously one of the slowest moving parts of an escrow so it should be addressed on day 1.
