RESPA Complaints on the Rise, Tougher Enforcement Ahead
June 30, 2003
Complaints involving illegal kickbacks and referral fees, as well as servicing issues, rose dramatically in 2002 compared to previous years, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Such complaints include only the written ones and do not include those that have been reported by telephone and email. The numbers could go higher, according to a HUD spokesman.
