  Truth in Lending Explanation Form
 
This document is used to help customers understand the federal disclosures that we are required to send  to all of our borrowers. The Truth In Lending (TIL) disclosure is one of the most commonly misunderstood document in the mortgage process. The TIL is designed to help borrowers understand that their borrowing cost consist of more than the simply the interest rate on the new mortgage. The TIL express the cost of the new loan in the form of an Annual percentage rate (APR) which essentially says "If all your mortgage related closing costs were lumped into the interest rate rather than being paid separately, what would the interest rate have to increase by to incorporate these costs".
 1
ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE:

The APR is not the same as your interest rate. Because the APR includes items in addition to interest, it is higher than the note rate. It is a combination of the amount of interest to be paid over the life of the loan, together with the prepaid finance charges computed as an annual rate.

 5
PREPAYMENT:

If the first box is checked, your loan has a prepayment penalty. This means that a fee may be charged to you if you pay off your loan before it is due.

The second box indicates that if you pay the loan off early you will not receive a refund for interest that you paid in the previous years. You will not owe any future interest, but will not be refunded any interest from the previous years.

 7
ASSUMPTION:
Your lender will determine if the loan is assumable (transferable with no change in rate or conditions) by a third party. Very few modern mortgages are  assumable.

 6
DISCLOSURE:
States that if you pay the loan off early, you will not be entitled to a refund of part of the finance charge. This means that you will be charged interest for the period of time in which you are using the money loaned to you. Prepaid finance charges and interest already paid are not refundable. In other words, you only pay interest for the time the loan is still outstanding.
