Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA): Rule To Simplify and Improve the Process of Obtaining Mortgages and Reduce Consumer Settlement Costs; Withdrawal of Revised Definition of “Required Use”
Document Number: E9-11383
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-05-15
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This final rule withdraws the revisions to the definition of ``required use'' as provided in HUD's November 17, 2008, final rule amending its Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) regulations. The November 17, 2008, final rule, in part, revised the existing definition of ``required use,'' for the purpose of enhancing protections for consumers from deceptive mortgage practices that result from certain affiliated business transactions. The revised definition of ``required use'' had been scheduled to become effective on January 16, 2009. On January 15, 2009, and March 10, 2009, HUD published final rules delaying the effective date of the definition of ``required use.'' The March 10, 2009, final rule provides for an effective date of July 16, 2009. The March 10, 2009, rule also solicited comment on whether HUD should withdraw the revised definition of ``required use'' and, if so, whether HUD should initiate new rulemaking on the subject. HUD has taken into consideration the public comments received and has decided to withdraw the revised ``required use'' definition. HUD therefore leaves in place the definition of ``required use'' before the revisions made by the November 17, 2008, final rule. HUD remains committed to the RESPA reform goals of the November 17, 2008, final rule and concerned about some of the practices reported by commenters, and will initiate a new rulemaking process on required use.
