New AAR Documents Soon To Be Released

In addition to the new TRID rules and documents, REALTORS will soon have a new Residential Resale Real Estate Purchases Contract, a new Pre-qualification Form and a new Loan Status Update. The Arizona Association of REALTORS will be releasing these documents in September. The changes to these documents are in response to the TRID Rules. These new REALTOR documents incorporate lender events real estate agents will now need to know, such as the six pieces of information needed for a loan application, the Loan Estimate and the buyer’s intent to proceed. All of these have contract timelines. If your buyer does not correctly follow these event timelines, they may find themselves served a cure period notice.

How Should I Approach this Change?

There will be difficulties in closing some transactions. But many of these difficulties will come from a negative attitude toward the rules, and not taking the time to learn them and the new contract documents.

The best way to approach the new rules is knowing that the Loan Estimate and the Closing Disclosure will make it easier for a buyer to understand the loan and closing costs associated with the transaction. This is a good thing. And you must learn the specifics of how the new rules work with the new AAR documents. When you know and understand them, you will have confidence when representing a buyer, a seller, and when working with other real estate agents, loan officers and escrow officers.

Your Opportunity to Learn: The Industry Partners Conference

While most of you have attended a TRID seminar, most of you will not have attended a seminar as the one being offered on September 16, 2015.

At the seminar you will learn about chain of events that must happen before a transaction can close. An example of a chain of event is the following: before the appraisal can be ordered the buyer must have acknowledged an intent to proceed with the lender. Before the buyer can acknowledge an intent to proceed with the lender they must have received the Loan Estimate. Before a loan officer can send a Loan Estimate the buyer must have provided the six pieces of information necessary for a loan application. Before the buyer can supply all of the necessary six pieces for a loan application there must be contract acceptance. Each of these events has a timeline associated with it.
