The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA)
RESPA is a complex, federal consumer protection law that touches just about every player in residential real estate transactions. If you violate RESPA, you can be on the hook not only for potentially millions of dollars in damages and attorneys' fees, but you also may face criminal penalties. And if you are a homeowner or borrower and have been victimized by a violation of RESPA, you have the right to file a federal RESPA lawsuit and to recover your losses, treble damages and attorneys' fees.
Accordingly, if you are business facing RESPA litigation, or a homeowner who has sustained losses as a result of a RESPA violation, you need an experienced RESPA lawyer on your side, either to keep you in compliance with RESPA, to minimize your exposure if you've already run afoul of the law, or to fight on your behalf to recover all the damages you may be entitled to. For more information about RESPA, take a look at our About RESPA Page.
