Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act

The ‘Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act’ (or RESPA), is an act that was first enacted in 1974 by congress. However, the most recent amendments can have an effect on how you buy and sell property.

This act was initially created because various companies associated with the buying and selling of real estate, such as lenders, real estate agents, construction companies and title insurance companies were often engaging in providing undisclosed kickbacks to each other, inflating the costs of real estate transactions.
