The Know Before You Owe mortgage disclosure rule makes it easier to understand these disclosures by:

  • Streamlining four disclosure forms into two – the Loan Estimate and the Closing Disclosure
  • Standardizing the information to obtain Loan Estimates
  • Giving potential borrowers time to review and understand their mortgage terms before signing on the dotted line

Make sure to take the time to review the site and share these resources.
