Software helps solves complex calculations and reduces errors

For attorneys handling bank or lender closings, it is critical to be responsive, fast, and accurate. When a closing begins, it is imperative that there are no miscalculations to ensure there are no delays or revisiting of numbers. Working with banks and lenders means that they will likely have their own set of numbers such as a Loan Estimate. Once this step is complete, the attorney will create a CD (Closing Disclosure) with their set of numbers. This is where complex calculations begin. Without proper cross-checking and accuracy across the board, the closing process can become more complicated and delayed.

“I’ve been running bank closings for many, many years and I have to say as a real estate attorney, it’s important to master the ‘math’ of a closing. You have to know that your numbers are accurate and understand the process of how the numbers came to be.” says Lou Petralia, Westchester County real estate attorney.

About the Standard TILA-RESPA 5-page Integrated Closing Disclosure (CD)

Under Federal law, lenders were required to provide three different disclosure forms to a consumer applying for a mortgage. The law also required lenders to provide the consumer with two separate forms shortly before closing on the loan. As these forms were designed by two different Federal agencies, under two Federal statutes, the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 (RESPA), there was duplication and inconsistent information, leading to consumer confusion.
