Venable CFPB Update: (Another) RESPA Enforcement and How to Self-Report


A Connecticut mortgage lender has agreed to pay an $83,000 civil money penalty for violating the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA). The lender focuses its business primarily on loss mitigation financing to distressed borrowers.

Until 2010, a hedge fund financed the lender’s activities, and, accordingly, the lender and hedge fund split the origination fees paid by consumers.
