No. We have not yet heard anything from any of the states on this specific issue, but notifications will go out by ICE Mortgage Technology (AllRegs), as well as updates to our provided content, if and when we receive any updated information regarding movement by states in coordinating state law and regulations in keeping with the new provisions under the rule. You will need to pay attention to each state in which you do business for such conflicts (e.g., the state of Washington has eliminated specific disclosure forms currently required upon the effective date of the rule).

The language regarding the consumer’s right to receive a copy of the appraisal is included in the Loan Estimate, and there is no requirement for this to be a separate disclosure. However, the separate Notice of Right to Copy of Appraisal disclosure still applies to those transactions in first lien position that are exempt from use of the Loan Estimate & Closing Disclosure. Regarding disclosure of the waiver of receipt of a copy of the appraisal, if elected to issue to a consumer it would be separate from this disclosure.

Yes, this separate initial disclosure was eliminated for all loans other than reverse mortgages upon the effective date of the rule (10/3/2015).
