It is important to note that the Know Before You Owe regulation did not implement any changes on data privacy; however, ALTA encourages title insurance and settlement companies to take this opportunity to review your company’s privacy policies to ensure they match your data-sharing practices.


TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures (TRID) rule effective date Saturday, October 3, 2015.  Visit our TRID Information page:
