This most recent update contains several new answers to industry questions plus a new section for reverse mortgages. Updates to the RESPA FAQs include:  ► The time of the when a lender must provide a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) or revised GFE for a loan when the application was taken by a broker; ► How to properly disclose a service provider fee on a GFE when a government program restricts the choice of providers to those that are pre-approved; ► How to disclose the loan amount, loan term, interest rate and monthly payment amount on a GFE for a reverse mortgage; and ► Whether a GFE should state that a reverse mortgage has a balloon payment or an escrow account feature.  Click here to access a copy of the updated New RESPA Rule FAQs (as of 11/17/09).
