Q: If a mortgage broker provides the GFE
and the "written list" of settlement-service providers and the borrower chooses to use a provider identified on the "written list" for a service.
These systems provide more accurate estimated closing costs, based on local figures, that can be embedded into the GFE
to help ensure that the initial disclosure amounts will be as close as possible to the final HUD-1 and not trigger re-disclosure, which starts the clock all over again.
Even after the federal government's attempt to streamline the GFE
, more than one in three (36 percent) homeowners described the GFE
as being "complicated" or a "waste of time.
The new feature will provide a clearer understanding of how fees interact with the new GFE
and HUD-1 Settlement Statement, and will ensure a more precise comparison of fees between initial disclosure and closing documents," said Britt Christiansen, Docu Prep's senior analyst.

The draft GFE
states that lenders shall provide a free copy of the appraisal or valuation within three days of closing while the Dodd-Frank Act requires consumer disclosure of the appraisal only in "higher risk" loans.
But the survey found that the GFE
may not be improving shopping as intended.
These two features ensure that lenders and mortgage brokers using the calculator will not be "over-disclosing" by providing a borrower with higher-than-actual settlement charges on the GFE
To facilitate comparison shopping, the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulates which fees must be disclosed by a lender on a GFE
and publishes the form that every lender must use to make these loan quotes or disclosures.
To identify the hazards, the GFE
must understand and use these references and other resources, such as DC plates, the ship's DC book, previous entry certificates, and various NSTMs.
In addition, many of those responding to the request for feedback said the proposed four-page GFE
was too long.
