 RESPA Reform: Are you Ready?

 With RESPA reform around the corner are you prepared for the up and coming changes?

 Summary of Changes

 On January 1, 2010, HUD will require that lenders and mortgage brokers provide consumers with a standard Good Faith Estimate (GFE) that clearly discloses key loan terms and closing costs.  Closing agents will also be required to provide borrowers a new HUD-1 settlement statement that clearly compares consumers' final and estimated costs.

 What becomes effective January 1, 2010

 1)   Revised Good Faith Estimate (GFE)

 2)   GFE tolerances on settlement costs

 3)   Revised Settlement Statement (HUD-1)

 4)   Revised definitions for application, Good Faith Estimate, and Mortgage Broker

 5)   Additional definitions for changed circumstances, origination services, loan originator, prepayment    penalty, third party, title service and tolerance.

We will do a radio show on this in Jan some time after our lenders go to class and post it here. It should be interesting

Hi Robert. We got a sneak peek of the new Hud 1 a few months back from our in-house loan officer. It looks complicated at first glance. But it is necessary and will become second nature rapidly. Thanks for the reminder!

Great Article on this important topic - Changes with RESPA.

I recently wrote my own article on the topic and could not find a group to post it to - so I created the RESPA Group, here in ActiveRain.  In just 4 days we are up to 39 members and 23 valuable blog posts.

I would like to invite you to join the group and repost this important resource to the group so many will be able to easily find it, when researching and following the topic.

Thanks for your consideration,
