[ The latest news for Minnesota Housing homeownership lender partners ]
Important TRID Updates
In November 2015, Minnesota Housing temporarily allowed lenders to charge a nominal fee to facilitate compliant disclosure of Deferred Payment Loans.
Effective for all loans originated on or after January 1, 2018, Minnesota Housing prohibits lenders from charging fees to the borrower other than standard recording fees, conservation fund fees, and transfer taxes/fees on downpayment and closing cost loans. 
A servicing fee of $175 is still required on Monthly Payment Loans.
In response to the release of the final TILA RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rule, Minnesota Housing has revised its TRID and Minnesota Housing Downpayment Loans guidance:
  • Lenders may implement the revised disclosure options immediately.
  • All loans originated on or after January 1, 2018 must comply with the revised guidance.
  • Deferred Payment Loan disclosure options have changed.
  • Monthly Payment Loans disclosure options remain the same.
  • See TRID and Minnesota Housing Downpayment Loans guidance document for details.
