Today the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Economics released a staff report titled ‘The Effect of Mortgage Broker Compensation Disclosures on Consumers and Competition: A Controlled Experiment.’ The report presents the results of a study that examines the mortgage broker compensation disclosure proposed by HUD as part of its RESPA reform proposal, as well as two alternative versions. The study finds that the disclosures are likely to confuse consumers, cause a significant number of consumers to choose loans that are more expensive than the available alternatives, and create a substantial consumer bias against broker loans, even when the broker loans cost the same or less than direct lender loans. The full report is available at:
