Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA). *The RESPA regulations describe
how mortgage costs and fees must be disclosed to borrowers. *Hear the
Secretary describe how his proposed reform will fight predatory lending and
HUD has proposed rules to clamp down on property flipping, appraisal fraud,
and other persistent problems in the FHA mortgage program. *Listen to an
update on this front from the Secretary.
HUD has committed itself to a goal of 5.5 million new minority homeowners by
the end of the decade. *The Secretary will discuss how he intends to
accomplish this goal of expanding the American Dream of Homeownership and
protecting new homeowners from predatory lenders.
