Comments for Regulation Z

Toni Weininger Toni Weininger said:

My PNC loan officer told me that once the final review is granted on our HELOC, as per Regulation Z guidelines, there was an 8-day waiting period prior to closing. Is this true under Regulation Z?

Hi, Toni! Every lender has different terms and conditions with regard to the loan-granting process, though they are all governed by Regulation Z and various laws enforced by the Federal Reserve. You may find the following website useful: However, Regulation Z is in fact the Truth-in-Lending Act that protects borrowers from abusive clauses and hidden costs. Since your loan officer is familiar with it, you have nothing to worry about. The 8-day term may have nothing to do with regulation Z, though.
