On Saturday, October 3, 2015, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is implementing new regulations that will require new forms and timing requirements on most residential transactions that include closed-end mortgage loans. These new regulations are commonly referred to as "TRID".

TRID will have a substantial impact on Realtors® and lenders. Accordingly, Sun Title will provide the following services to assist in the transition:

Coordination and delivery of all essential numbers for lenders to create an accurate Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure including estimates for:
    Property taxes
    Title insurance premiums
    Closing fees
    Transfer taxes
    Recording fees
   

Other applicable fees

A TRID response team available from 8:30am to 10:00pm Monday through Friday and from 9:00am through 3:00pm on Saturdays to answer any TRID-related questions and provide information as needed through our designated TRID support email at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Creation of a pro-forma Closing Disclosure on each transaction for review by lenders.

Creation of a combined or bifurcated closing statement to be signed by the borrower and seller binding them to the closing numbers. Such closing statements will be provided to lenders and agents in advance of the closing.

Evening and weekend closing options.

TRID training for real estate, lending and compliance teams.

"Sun Title and their staff has always accommodated our office in almost any way shape form or fashion when it comes to closing our REO Bank Owned and traditional real estate transactions. One thing in particular that it is of great benefit and service is the mobile closing at our real estate office sometimes within 48-72 hours of consummating a real estate transaction.

"I do a high volume of business and have worked with several title companies over the years. Sun Title is definitely the best!  My clients are very important to me since my business runs strictly on referral.  I surround myself with business partners who reflect the professionalism and work ethic I strive to provide to my clients.  An example of that would be when another title company couldn't provide a seller with a check at closing that they needed for a closing with Sun.  Tom Cronkright went the extra mile with his business connections and made it happen!  Which made me look like a hero to my clients.  Thanks Tom and Sun Title!"-Lisa, Keller Williams North
