TRID-Speak: The “Consummation” Conundrum

Background. On October 3, 2015, the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau’s “Know Before You Owe” program, aka “TRID”,[1] was rolled out. It was predicated on a belief that the entire financial crisis of 2007/08 was due to the fact that residential borrowers were snookered into taking out high risk loans, and By Golly, the “Bureau”, as they call themselves, was gonna make things right.[2] The result has been 1,888 pages of regulations that presaged much industry handwringing – some of it justified.

[2] I submit the vast majority of borrowers understood the banks were giving away easy money with risky repayment terms, but they also believed – as did the banks and their regulators, all the way up to Fed Chair Alan Greenspan – that real estate would never lose value. Thus, the risk was manageable, since if the gamble didn’t work out, borrowers could either refinance or re-sell.  It was an acceptable bet.
