Adhering to the exact wording of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (“RESPA”), the U.S. Supreme Court held in a rare, unanimous decision that a violation of Section 8(b) of RESPA does not apply unless a charge for real estate settlement services is divided between two or more parties. It cannot be based upon a fee retained by only one service provider.
