How Long Must Creditors Keep Real Estate Loan Records?
Under the TRID rule, creditors must retain Escrow Cancellation and Partial Payment Policy disclosures for two years; Loan Estimate records for three years after loan consummation and Closing Disclosures for FIVE years.
If a creditor sells or transfers their interest they must provide a copy of the Closing Disclosure to the new owner or servicer and both parties must retain it for the remainder of the 5-year period. Records CAN be stored digitally but it is NOT required.
TRID does not define how long consumers should keep disclosure records.
