Event Description

Understanding Section 8 of RESPA & Avoiding Kickbacks and Unearned Fees Webinar

IBA’s compliance webinars are a continuing series. Brought to you by the IBA compliance staff they offer timely information, addressing key regulatory issues when you need it. The webinars keep you informed and ready for the challenges of the changing regulatory financial services environment.

Tit for tat. You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours. Or, if you want to get a little fancier, “quid pro quo”  - a Latin-derived expression referring to something done for someone in exchange for something of equal value in return.  Happens all the time in the business world, right?  No harm, no foul.  However, when it comes to mortgage loan settlement services, there is a BIG foul because of potential BIG harm to consumers. RESPA was enacted by Congress in the early 1970’s to regulate the disclosure of mortgage loan costs and business arrangements in real estate settlements.  Section 8 of RESPA attempts to protect consumers from unnecessarily high settlement costs caused by abusive practices between settlement service providers.   While RESPA has not changed much since its inception, the mortgage industry has evolved by leaps and bounds – sometimes bringing into question how Section 8 of RESPA can be applied to current mortgage lending activities.  In this webinar we will review Section 8 basic rules and apply the rule to current mortgage lending practices.

Webinar participants will gain a better understanding of:

  • Prohibited activities under Section 8 of RESPA
  • What constitutes a referral fee, unearned fee, and kickback
  • Permitted compensation
  • Properly disclosing affiliated business arrangements
  • Pitfalls of certain marketing activities including marketing service agreements, lead agreements, website linking, payments to brokers, and more
  • Tips for reducing Section 8 violation risk
