Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act Violations
Are You the Victim of a RESPA Violation in Chicago?
Congress passed the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) in 1974 in order to ensure that consumers receive accurate and timely information regarding real estate transactions. Before the passing of RESPA, several real estate companies and professionals were benefiting from undisclosed kickbacks and obscuring real prices for consumers.
If you are facing foreclosure and believe that your mortgage servicer has made a mistake, RESPA also allows you to make a "qualified written request" to help you obtain your loan information and rectify any errors. Failure to rectify errors or provide you with account information are considered RESPA violations.
If you have a RESPA violation case on your hands, Atlas Consumer Law can take legal action on your behalf. Our Chicago consumer law lawyers can file a lawsuit in order to help obtain the money damages you are entitled to under the law.
