The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), as implemented through Regulation X, applies to all federally related mortgage loans with few exceptions. RESPA requires specific disclosures and procedures in connection with the application, settlement, and servicing of one to four dwelling secured consumer loans. In this webinar, Max Gardner will review how to effectively use Reg X in dealing with all issues related to the “servicing” of such loans, including what you must know BEFORE you file any mortgage servicing case or consumer bankruptcy case.
In order to follow the booking in and subsequent application of each mortgage payment in your client’s case, you must know and understand how to read the Transaction Codes and the Reports these systems can produce.

National Collegiate Student Loan Trust (NCSLT) cases continue despite the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) getting involved by issuing a consent order barring NCSLT and their collection company, Transworld Systems Inc, from suing on unverified debts. Defending consumers in these cases can be both frustrating and rewarding. Often, consumers are sued for tens of thousands of dollars, and successful defense can truly change a consumer’s life, while losses can be difficult.
