WHF/WHFF Partner Series: RESPA FAQs and MSAs. Are We Beyond PHH Yet? And What is the Future of RESPA ?

In October the CFPB published RESPA FAQs and rescinded its Bulletin on marketing service agreements (MSAs).  Rich and Ken will discuss how these actions impact the mortgage industry.  Although the rescission of the MSA Bulletin reflects a “softening” in tone from the agency, the FAQs continue to reflect a reticence related to arrangements among settlement service providers.

Rich and Ken will discuss where we have been (PHH), where we are (FAQs) and where we are headed and what the future of RESPA looks like.

 

Speakers: 

Richard J. Andreano Jr.,  Partner, Ballard Spahr
Ken Markison, Of Cousel, Weiner Brodsky Kider PC


Date: November 12, 2020 
Time: 12:00 - 1:00 pm ET
