CFPB RIN: 3170-AA16 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Escrow Requirements Under the Truth in Lending Act (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 included provisions to implement the Dodd-Frank Act's disclosure requirements regarding escrow accounts. The Board's proposal also included provisions to exempt certain loans from the statute's escrow requirement, pursuant to authority in the Dodd-Frank Act. The primary exemption in the proposal applied 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 issued a final rule on January 10, 2013, which was published in the Federal Register on January 22, 2010. The CFPB, in a separate rulemaking (see RIN 3170-AA32), issued a final rule postponing the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act disclosure requirements regarding escrow accounts.
