CFPB RIN: 3170-AA16 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Requirements for Escrow Accounts (Regulation Z) 
Abstract: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) published in the Federal Register on March 2, 2011, a proposed rule to implement certain amendments to the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) made by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) that lengthen the time for which a mandatory escrow account established for a higher-priced mortgage loan must be maintained. In addition, the Board's proposal would implement the Dodd Frank Act's disclosure requirements regarding escrow accounts. The Board's proposal also would exempt certain loans from the statute's escrow requirement, pursuant to authority in the Dodd-Frank Act. The primary exemption would apply to mortgage loans extended by creditors that operate predominantly in rural or underserved areas and meet certain other prerequisites. Pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act, the rulemaking authority for the TlLA generally transferred from the Board to the CFPB on July 21, 2011. The CFPB is working to issue a final rule. The CFPB, in a separate rulemaking (see RIN 3170-AA32), issued a final rule postponing the implementation of the disclosures included in the Board's proposal.
