ORDER THE CD + SPECIAL REPORT - DETAILS BELOW!
A new proposal from HUD to streamline mortgage settlement regulations under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) will have a major impact on the entire mortgage industry.
The centerpiece of the proposal is a massive overhaul of the good-faith estimate to make it a more useful tool for comparing loan offers. The new form is four pages long and mandates disclosures for numerous fees and charges. The entire industry will be affected including lenders, brokers, homebuilders, title agents, and others.
In all there are 94 Federal Register pages of proposed changes that go beyond disclosures and could significantly alter the competitive balance in the mortgage market. What changes will you have to make to accommodate the new rules? Which actions will impact you most?
Find out directly from the Department of Housing and Urban Development what it expects from the industry, and then learn from two legal experts the ramifications of the proposed regulations and what it all will mean for your business.
