RESPA Marketing Webinar

Event Category: 

On Thursday February 19, 2015, NAR hosted a webinar on marketing and services agreements (MSAs) and other agreements under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA). There have been a number of enforcement actions targeting disclosures and practices under the anti-kickback provisions of RESPA.  No one may give or accept anything of value for the referral of settlement services in residential transactions involving a mortgage. MSAs are under particular scrutiny.  NAR continues its decades long work to educate members about their obligations under RESPA.  Visit www.nar.realtor/respa to see the latest and join us for another webinar on Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 2:00 PM EDT on the changes to the closing process set for August 1.
