Hello RESPA stands for Real Estate Settlement Protection Act and it simply means that lenders are required to provide information to borrowers information throughout the loan process. It also protects against lenders and affiliated parties (i.e insurance and title companies) from charging inflated prices to the borrower and then the lender gets a kickback (getting a fee for referring the borrower to use a third parties services during the loan process).
