The Path Insider August 2021




    Tips & Tricks

    Tolerance Screen

    Through the read-only Tolerance screen, you can view disclosed fees and compare them to the actual fees when the final fees are determined and available after the loan is disclosed. The Tolerance screen compares the current fees with the most recently disclosed fees and calculates the cost to cure. When fees are outside of tolerance, this screen indicates when you need to redisclose the APR or will have to reimburse the borrower for fees that exceed the tolerance.
