BB&T Issues TRID Announcement


BB&T LogoHome lender BB&T announced in August that it will communicate with settlement agents (closing attorneys in South Carolina) through Real EC’s Closing Insight™ once the TRID rules become effective on October 3. The announcement stated that there will be no exceptions to the rule that settlement agents must be registered with Closing Insight™ to close TRID-impacted mortgage loans.*

Registration is required even if the closing attorney’s software company is integrated with Closing Insight™. We understand, however, that RealEC does not require registration for each lender. Once a closing attorney is registered once with Closing Insight™, additional registrations are not required.

As we have heard from other lenders, BB&T stated that beginning Oct. 3, Closing Insight™ will be the only means of communication for completing the Closing Disclosure. E-mail, fax and other delivery methods will no longer be used.

Initially, title orders will continue to be e-mailed from BB&T’s mortgage loan officer to the settlement agent, but BB&T states that it is in the process of changing the title order request process so that it will be communicated through Closing Insight™.

follow the leader aLike other large lenders, BB&T will generate and deliver the borrower’s Closing Disclosure. Settlement agents will generate and deliver Closing Disclosures to sellers and will provide copies to BB&T.

BB&T states that it will monitor TRID-required timeframes and will attempt to begin collaboration with settlement agents ten days prior to scheduled closing dates.

BB&T has established a new settlement agent web page at for updates and frequently asked questions.
