“Resolving the Split on Split Fees Under RESPA: Freeman v. Quicken Loans Holds That Fee-Splitting Is Prohibited Only if the Fee Actually Is Split”

On September 24, 2012 by Schnader

Stephen A. Fogdall and Elizabeth Nicolas co-authored the article “Resolving the Split on Split Fees Under RESPA: Freeman v. Quicken Loans Holds That Fee-Splitting Is Prohibited Only if the Fee Actually Is Split” published in the Fall 2012 edition of The Real Estate Finance Journal. The article discusses a recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that resolves a circuit split as to whether Section 8(b) of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act prohibits undivided unearned fees and points out that there is a related circuit split that the Court’s decision did not explicitly address.
