How Well Do YOU Understand RESPA?

At its core, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, better known as RESPA, is a consumer disclosure and anti-kickback statute intended to alert consumers about their settlement costs and to prohibit kickbacks that could increase the cost of getting a mortgage.

New RESPA regulations were published in November 2008 and are scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, 2010. To prepare for the changes, Federal Title & Escrow Company is hosting a free event for 100 guests, which will feature a presentation by mortgage banking and consumer finance expert Holly Spencer Bunting.

To attend this free event and learn more about RESPA, contact the marketing department at Federal Title.
