How long a lender keeps certain records depends on each individual record itself. For example, creditors must retain escrow cancellation and partial payment policy disclosures for two years, loan estimate records for three years after loan consummation, and closing disclosures for five years.
If a creditor sells or transfers their interest, they must provide a copy of the closing disclosure to the new owner or servicer and both parties must retain it for the remainder of the 5-year period. Records can be stored digitally but it is not required.
That being said, there is nothing to define how long consumers should keep disclosure records.
