This week, the Virginia REALTORS® legal team completes a two-part series on RESPA by discussing kickbacks and referrals. Jon and Erin talk about the six forms of permissible compensation under RESPA, and how the Prospect Mortgage case has changed the regulatory landscape. They also answer some legal hotline questions, such as “Can I offer to contribute money to a charity of the person’s choosing if they refer me clients?”. Finally, they tell you how to best limit your risk when it comes to RESPA.
