Webinar - Mortgage Lending Hot Spots Series: Construction-Only & Construction-to-Permanent Lending
Tuesday, June 04, 2019, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Financial institutions continue to struggle with residential construction loans. The CFPB has had different points of view since the inception of TRID, which has further complicated the process. There are pros and cons to construction-only versus construction-to-permanent financing and issues that financial institutions need to consider for each, including real-life implications. This, coupled with TRID disclosure issues, make construction and construction-to-permanent lending a potentially difficult proposition. In addition, sometimes secondary market lenders exacerbate the problem with their own rules. This webinar will delve into the disclosure requirement issues and real-life implications using the latest CFPB information and industry best practices.
