A step in the right direction. Now they need to restore the cancellable option to make it really shine again...

No.  It has no relevance in our great country.  The only HUD news I follow is to answer the question "What is one type of career that a retired surgeon can have that is completely unrelated to his prior career?"

Yes, saw this the other day in a RESPA newsletter.  Won't help anyone under contract now with a closing prior unless the Seller would be willing to extend and that would take some doing....  

For new contracts definitely something to keep in mind.
