Welcome to the Pennsylvania Land Title Association
Join us for the Pennsylvania Land Title Association’s
94th Annual Convention
PLTA President’s Update – May 2015
May finds the title industry aligning itself to meet the expectations of government regulation that has clearly changed the marketplace and how we conduct business. The countdown is on – we are under 90 days until the new TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure rule effective date of August 1, 2015. To keep us at the forefront of legislation and to explain to Congressional leaders the value of what we do in the real estate transaction to protect consumers, our Executive Director, Robin Kelsh, along with President-Elect, John Croke, CLTP, will be in Washington, DC, for the ALTA Federal Conference and Lobby Day May 18-20.
So, are you ready? PLTA has put together some resources on its website to guide you in your preparedness. These will undoubtedly grow and adjust but we all should be aware of the landscape change. Conversations and education should be happening between all settlement providers and their lender and realtor customers so they are also aware of changes. Both Chase and Bank of America have already issued answers via updates to settlement providers concerning the preparation of the TRID. You should have the same information from the lenders you transact with as well.
The 94th Annual PLTA Convention on May 31-June 2 will also provide education from industry leaders around the title industry environment, expectations and TRID. More details can be found on our Convention page. Our Monopoly themed convention will provide the perfect blend of education, vendor resources, relaxation and fun and games at the historic Omni Bedford Springs in Bedford, PA. Don’t just roll the dice, with so much going on in the industry; it’s time to get your GAME ON! Hope to see you at the convention.
