Regulation Z, a monthly payment disclosure within mortgages, took effect on Jan. 30. Enacted by the Federal Reserve, it requires lenders to disclose how and when a loan's interest rate may change.

Lenders also now must provide an interest rate and payment summary in the form of a table instead of a payment schedule box.
