ALTA RESPA Taskforce

March 25, 2009

ALTA has formed a RESPA Implementation Taskforce to identify the practical questions that arise in the new RESPA regulations and determine how title agents and closers will implement the new rule. To do this, the Taskforce will:

  1. Act as liaison with HUD to receive guidance on the many implementation questions we have,
  2. Act as liaison with other trade organizations like the Mortgage Bankers Association to jointly address issues raised by the rule, and
  3. Create best practices for the industry.
You can submit questions for the RESPA Implementation Taskforce to The Taskforce is compiling all of the questions it receives to deliver them to HUD seeking clarification. Please look for the answer to your questions in the feedback that the ALTA Taskforce will be giving to ALTA members in Title News, on email alerts, and on our website at
