Mortgage Choice Act of 2017

(Sec. 2) This bill amends the Truth in Lending Act to specify that neither escrow charges for insurance nor affiliated title charges shall be considered "points and fees" for purposes of determining whether a mortgage is a "high-cost mortgage." (A high-cost mortgage designation restricts the terms of the loan and requires a lender to make certain disclosures to the borrower.)
