Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA): Strengthening and Clarifying RESPA's “Required Use” Prohibition Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
Document Number: 2010-13350
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-06-03
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Through this Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR), HUD commences the process of initiating rulemaking directed to strengthening and clarifying the prohibition against the ``required use'' of affiliated settlement service providers in residential mortgage transactions under section 8 of RESPA. HUD has received complaints that some homebuyers are committing to use a builder's affiliated mortgage lender in exchange for construction discounts or discounted upgrades, without sufficient time to research their contracts or to comparison shop. The purpose of this ANPR is to solicit information that can be used to inform any future revision or clarification of the regulatory definition of the ``required use'' of affiliated settlement service providers in residential mortgage transactions.
