Sanibel Real Estate Blog: The Closing Disclosure

It’s acceptable for real estate professionals to receive a copy of the closing disclosure from lenders, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) ruled late last week. About a year ago, the CFPB released this clarification, and last week’s action makes it official, says the National Association of Realtors® (NAR).

This is great news- we (agents) felt a bit shut out of the process with lenders at the closing juncture of the whole process. Turns out that agents actually do find errors and it was a good thing when we were involved.

So, the next time you close on a home with a lender, lenders will be able to share the closing disclosure. Hopefully, this will help reduce the closing table errors!
