Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA)

Has your lender wrongfully denied your loan modification application?
Have you been in review for a loan modification for months?
Have you received foreclosure paperwork or sale date notices while working with your lender on a loan modification?

The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) protects consumers from abusive lending practices and requires lenders to provide greater amounts of information to prospective borrowers at certain points in the loan settlement process.  RESPA mandates lenders to provide consumers with a full disclosure of fees, costs, and their affiliated business arrangements. RESPA also prohibits various practices, such as kickbacks, referral fees, unpaid fees, and it limits the use of escrow accounts.

You have rights. Under the protection of RESPA, Aronow Law can contest any illegal activities by your lender and help you to collect substantial payments for damages. We will represent you in suing mortgage lenders for violations that may include:

  • Misapplication of escrow funds
  • Receiving or providing kickbacks or referral fees to other lenders
