243 Reps Urge Withdrawal of RESPA Rule

August 11, 2008

Over 240 members of Congress are urging the Department of Housing and Urban Development to withdraw a proposed RESPA rule and undertake a joint rulemaking effort with the Federal Reserve Board to improve mortgage disclosures. The 243 lawmakers signed a letter circulated by Reps. Ruben Hinojosa, D-Texas, and Judy Biggert, R-Ill., that says HUD's Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act proposal fails to improve and simplify disclosures of mortgage terms and settlement costs. "We are profoundly concerned that HUD's proposed RESPA rule will hinder rather than help the recovery of the housing market," says the letter to HUD Secretary Steve Preston. Over a dozen housing groups lobbied members of Congress to sign the letter, which was circulated a few weeks ago. Earlier this year, when HUD first issued the RESPA proposal, the industry groups succeeded in getting 140 members of Congress to sign a petition requesting a 60-day extension of the public comment period. HUD agreed to a 30-day extension.
