With one registration, you can invite your entire staff to listen and learn as two of the nation’s top compliance attorneys instruct on laws and regulations that affect title insurance professionals and how business should be conducted to avoid violations. The material presented covers RESPA, but also goes beyond that, focusing on a gamut of compliance issues affecting the title industry.
Our featured presenters are a unique pair in that one will approach the material from a legal perspective, while the other will focus on the operational and implementation aspect. The Webinar will cover an array of timely and crucial topics for title agents including:
- The new GFE/TILA combined disclosure form — updates on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and its activities with the new form, the status on the rule, a detailed description of the most recent version of the form, implementation considerations and impact on the HUD-1 Settlement Statement;
- How recent HUD settlements such as Fidelity and Prospect Mortgage have impacted the industry and the takeaways for title agents;
- State legislation and regulatory movements — where the states are headed and their focus for title agents and title operations;
- Foreclosures — a review of federal agency consent orders and state actions to address foreclosure issues; and
- What title agents should know about the qualified residential mortgage definition and its status with the regulators.
This Webinar is a must for all title agents, whether you are a seasoned professional concerned with staying compliant in a dynamic regulatory environment or you are fairly new to the industry, needing an instructional course on how to make your business compliant to avoid legal trouble.
