No question that the PHH decision by the DC Circuit earlier this year sparked increased interest in marketing and advertising activities, including marketing agreements and desk rentals. But, at the same time, there has been renewed interest in the formation of affiliated business arrangements among various settlement service providers. For example, a real estate broker may own an interest in both a lender and a title agency. Under RESPA rules, the real estate broker may refer its customers to the affiliated lender and title agency and earn dividends from those entities provided that the companies comply with RESPA’s affiliated business requirements.

On Thursday, June 21, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. EDT, please join RESPA author and Mayer Brown partner Phil Schulman for a one-hour webinar that will describe affiliated business requirements, enforcement activities related to these arrangements and some useful suggestions for staying on the right side of these tricky RESPA rules.

CLE credit is pending.
