New settlement statement for real estate closings

Effective Oct 3, 2015 the former settlement statement referred to as HUD1 will no longer be used for real estate closings. The replacement form is call the ‘Master Settlement Statement’. This is a simple one page document that shows all of the numbers related to the sale of real estate. Below is an example of what to expect at your closing. If the buyer gets a new mortgage loan, the loan charges will also appear on this form.

This all comes about because of the financial meltdown and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act rules that the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau now requires. In addition to the new settlement statement, buyers will receive new/additional disclosure forms from their mortgage company. All of these changes simplify the home sale process

    CORRECTION: HUD1 can still be used in an ‘all cash’ transaction. The new settlement statement is only required when a new mortgage is used for the purchase.
