Here's the only other consumer oriented RESPA news I have found and I want to thank you MyClosingSPACE.com. Here's a blurb:
HUD has responded to the GAO recommendations, and while the proposed RESPA reforms are designed to help consumers shop more intelligently and better understand where their closing costs are going, they will not immediately affect what the myClosingSPACE.com study also revealed – 62 percent of all consumers did not know they could purchase their own title insurance and closing services.
“This will change once RESPA reforms are passed,” says Schmidt. “With simplified and standardized forms, consumers will begin to shop for the best values. That will force title insurance companies to actively market to consumers. Involved consumers will make the industry more transparent, more honest, and more market friendly.”
