As of January 1, 2010, compliance with the following provisions of Regulation X (RESPA) is mandatory:
- The new version of the Good Faith Estimate (GFE), which is subject to tolerances for accuracy.
- The expanded Uniform Settlement Statement (HUD-1), which promotes comparison of loan terms and settlement charges between the HUD-1 and GFE.
- Reimbursement to borrowers within 30 days of settlement of any overcharges outside permitted tolerances.
The amended rule also provides that inadvertent or technical errors on the HUD-1/1A will not be deemed a violation of RESPA if a revised HUD-1/1A is provided to the borrower within 30 days of settlement.
The revised regulation is available at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2008/pdf/E8-27070.pdf.
