1321.594 Disclosure regarding material changes.

(A) In connection with making a non-brokered residential mortgage, no registrant or licensee shall fail to do either of the following:

(1) Timely inform the borrower of any material change in the terms of the residential mortgage loan. For purposes of division (A) (1) of this section, "material change" means the following:

(a) A change in the type of residential mortgage loan being offered, such as a fixed or variable rate loan or a loan with a balloon payment;

(b) A change in the term of the loan, as reflected in the number of monthly payments due before a final payment is scheduled to be made;

(c) A change in the interest rate of more than 0.15 %;

(d) A change in the regular total monthly payment, including principal, interest, any required mortgage insurance, and any escrowed taxes or property insurance, of more than five per cent;

(e) A change regarding whether the escrow of taxes or insurance will be required;

(f) A change regarding whether private mortgage insurance will be required.

(2) Timely inform the borrower if any fees payable by the borrower to the licensee, registrant, or lender increase by more than ten per cent or one hundred dollars, whichever is greater.

(B) The disclosures required by this section shall be deemed timely if the registrant or licensee provides the borrower with the revised information not later than the time requirement imposed by 12 C.F.R. 226.19(a)(2) and (3), as those provisions of federal law exist on July 31, 2009.

(C) If an increase in the total amount of the fee to be paid by the borrower to the registrant or licensee is not disclosed in accordance with division (A)(2) of this section, the registrant or licensee shall refund to the borrower the amount by which the fee was increased. If the fee is financed into the loan, the registrant or licensee shall also refund to the borrower the interest that would accrue over the term of the loan on that excess amount.
