Are You Prepared? Understanding and Implementing the New RESPA Rule

March 11, 2009

The battle is over in determining how and what aspects of the title industry will be affected by the new RESPA rule. Now is the time for your title agency to get prepared to handle these new closing procedures and gain an understanding of how these changes will impact your business operations and employees. A special educational session is being held during ALTA's Small Agents and Abstracters Forum, March 21-22, 2009 in Indianapolis, IN to help you and your staff learn how to navigate through these comprehensive rule changes including a line-by-line overview of the RESPA Settlement Statement and Good Faith Estimate. Mary Schuster, a member of ALTA's RESPA Implementation Task Force, will be the featured guest speaker and expert to review the forms, outline the rule changes, and to answer your questions and concerns. All meeting and meal expenses are billed back to each participant on a pro-rata share basis (excluding the Saturday Night dinner on March 21). The bill-back is expected to be about $50 per person. Register today by visiting the Small Agents and Abstracters Forum web page and to learn more about the program.
