The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) is one of the most effective tools that any consumer practitioner can use when dealing with mortgage servicers.  The Request for Information (RFI) and Notice of Error (NOE) process can serve as a vital discovery tool, a sword to attack a mortgage servicer when errors are made. Most importantly, RFIs and NOEs can serve as a shield to protect your client's interests.  As servicers work to change Regulation X and Z law in their favor, now more than ever, consumer attorneys need to know how to prepare proper RFIs and NOEs. This webinar is geared to beginner attorneys who want to improve their RFIs and NOEs. 

What You Will Learn

•    How to draft Requests for Information and Notices of Error
•    How use Notices of Error as a litigation tool
•    How to use Requests  for Information as a discovery tool
