CFPB TRID Sec. 2 - 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 rule applies to most closed-end consumer credit transactions secured by 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 that is not attached to real property (i.e., land).
There is also a partial exemption for certain transactions associated with housing assistance loan programs for low- and moderate-income consumers.
Certain types of loans that (prior to this new rule) were subject to TILA but not 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.
