(1) Be delivered to the person before the person
becomes contractually obligated on the loan; or

not later than 3 business days after the person enters into an agreement with the loan broker whichever occurs first. The estimated disclosure document must contain all the information and be in the form required by the Truth-in-Lending Law, 15 U.S.C. 1601-1667e, and regulations under that Law. However, the annual percentage rate, finance charge, total of payments and other matters required under the Truth-in-Lending Law, 15 U.S.C. 1601-1667e, shall be adjusted to reflect the amount of all fees and charges of the loan broker that the creditor could exclude from an estimated disclosure document.

borrower shall have the right to rescind the contract for services with the
loan broker and receive all fees actually paid thereon; provided, however, that
the client who has rescinded the contract may not use or disclose any
confidential or non-public information provided to the client by the loan
