As a consumer, if you are in the Real Estate Market for either selling or buying a home, then you need to know there are changes coming effective 10/03/15. These changes will modify the traditional way that loan and closing disclosures are handled in a Real Estate transaction.

Here are some common questions that will be useful in clarifying the changes.

  • Why are these changes coming?
