Decipher the FAQs of new RESPA rule

A Frequently Asked Questions report released by the Department of Housing and Urban Development regarding implementation of the new RESPA rule has raised more questions from an industry in need of interpretation and guidance.

"Lenders and title companies were looking to HUD to address the more difficult practical circumstances they will face in completing the new GFE and HUD-1," said Phil Schulman, an attorney with Washington, D.C.-based K&L Gates in an interview with the Title Report. "For the most part, they merely restate the instructions already contained in the regulations."

Decipher the FAQs with mortgage banking and consumer finance expert Holly Spencer Bunting, an associate with K&L Gates, who will present an in-depth overview of the components of HUD's final RESPA rule and the new HUD-1 and GFE disclosure forms.
