The new RESPA rules significantly change the way lenders must disclose settlement services, in particular closing attorneys’ fees, and title insurance. Generally, under the new rules, closing costs are divided into one of three “buckets”:
(1) those that cannot change from initial Good Faith Estimate (GFE) disclosure
(2) those subject to a 10% tolerance–that is, those which cannot increase by more than 10% from the GFE to the closing, and
(3) those that can change, i.e., increase without limitation.
