Here are just a few questions that you hear addressed:

- Can you attach something to the GFE – such as an addendum explaining fees?
- What should the lender and closing agent do if the 10-percent tolerance is violated?
- What do the panelists recommend as far as using the tradeoff table? HUD mandates the first column be filled out but not the others.
- Why the shopping chart? Does HUD really think the borrower is going to use this? What did the consumer testing show?
