GBRA update

As we all know GBRA is doing repairs on the Lake McQueeney dam. Here is their latest update to FOLM…

Team FOLM:
I hope all is well. Attached is an updated schedule related to planned repairs for the hydro lakes, including Lake McQueeney. Rain and increased flows from Canyon and Comal Springs have restricted work for more than 2 months, delaying the estimated completion date at McQueeney until August.
This revised estimate does not account for additional delays due to weather or identification of additional components that may need repair. As mentioned before, until new spillgates can be installed on-going repairs and lowered lake-levels will become more frequent as we continue to attempt to preserve the system. – GBRA

We’re ready for the TRID rules!

At 5 p.m. EST June 17, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued a statement that the effective date for the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rules would be pushed back to Oct. 1, 2015.

CFPB Director Richard Cordray said in a prepared statement: “The CFPB will be issuing a proposed amendment to delay the effective date of the Know Before You Owe rule until Oct. 1, 2015. We made this decision to correct an administrative error that we just discovered in meeting the requirements under federal law, which would have delayed the effective date of the rule by two weeks. We further believe that the additional time included in the proposed effective date would better accommodate the interests of the many consumers and providers whose families will be busy with the transition to the new school year at that time.”

Rainier Title has been working towards the TRID implementation for over a year and felt prepared for August 1st. However, with the proposed delay we will be taking this opportunity to continue our education and training of TRID. While we believe that we have been proactive and ready for this change, there are still so many unknowns that will have to be addressed at the time of implementation. The industry should still prepare for 45-60 days for transaction to close due to the new timing parameters of the forms.

We’re working hard to be ready for all changes!
