CFPB TRID Sec. 4 - What transactions are covered by the TILA-RESPA Rule?

Compliance > Regulation Z - TILA / TRID Specific > General Info
Q:  What transactions are covered by the TILA-RESPA Rule?
A:  The TILA-RESPA Rule applies to most closed-end consumer credit transactions secured by real property or a cooperative unit (regardless of whether state law classifies it as real property), but does not apply to:
  • HELOCs;
  • Reverse mortgages; or
  • Chattel-dwelling loans, such as loans secured by a mobile home or by a dwelling (other than a cooperative unit) that is not attached to real property.
Consistent with existing rules under TILA, the TILA-RESPA Rule also generally does not apply to loans made by a person or entity that is not considered a creditor under Regulation Z. (§ 1026.2(a)(17))
There is also a partial exemption for certain transactions associated with housing assistance loan programs for low- and moderate-income consumers. (§ 1026.3(h))
However, certain types of loans that are subject to TILA but are not subject to RESPA are subject to the TILA-RESPA Rule’s integrated disclosure requirements, including:
  • Construction-only loans; and
  • Loans secured by vacant land or by 25 or more acres.
Credit extended to certain trusts for tax or estate planning purposes also are covered by the TILA-RESPA Rule. (Comment 3(a)-10)
