(b) If the lender is acting as settlement agent, the lender shall cause disbursement of the settlement proceeds at the loan closing, or, for any other loan where a right of rescission applies, the lender shall cause disbursement of the settlement proceeds on the first business day after the expiration of the rescission period.

(c) The lender shall not be entitled to receive or charge any interest on the loan until disbursement of the settlement proceeds. (Added 2001, No. 55, § 2.)
