Just two years after HUD revised the HUD-1, the new regulator in charge of RESPA is creating new mortgage disclosure forms. A new GFE and HUD-1 are in the works, but you have a say in the process.
Join us May 6-9 in D.C. for our annual Federal Conference and Lobby Day to let your Congressional representatives know how these forms will impact your business and consumers (voters) in their districts. Now is the time for the industry to speak with one voice.
Lobby Day is the best opportunity the title industry has to establish itself as a knowledgeable resource and thought leader on property rights, title insurance and real estate settlements. ALTA has already scheduled 75 meetings with members of Congress or their staff. Take advantage of this must-attend conference by educating your congressional representative on how decisions in Washington affect your business. Nervous about meeting a member of Congress? Don’t worry. ALTA provides tools to help ensure a successful meeting.
Because the new mortgage disclosure forms will change how closings are handled, we’ve invited Richard Cordray, director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to discuss development of the new forms. A panel discussion will dig deeper on this issue and share what you should expect the Bureau’s proposed rule to look like when it is released in July, who will be expected to complete the combined HUD/TIL disclosure and how implementation of the form will impact the title insurance industry.
Don't miss this opportunity to get a 2012 Presidential campaign outlook and hear what the federal government can do to help restore the health of the housing market as part of a broader strategy for economic recovery. You’ll also learn how proposals to reform Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the housing finance system will impact the real estate market and your business.
