I need to know what a HOEPA Disclosure is:

According to what I know, and you have probably already gotten your answer, the HOEPA Disclosure has to advise the borrower 3 days prior to closing that they are entering into a high cost mortgage, what the interest rate is and the term and any other things such as pre- payment penalties, balloons, etc. This gives the borrower 3 days before closing and 3 days after closing to rescend the loan.

A HOEPA Disclosure is a Notice to the borrower that he is about to enter into a High Cost Loan (i.e., SECTION 32). It discloses the Annual Rate to the borrower "specifically" as well as what their payment will be. It is a Regulation that lenders are required to satisfy. This form allows the borrower an additional 3 days cancellation period on top of the usual 3 days issued. (6 days total)
