Gain an understanding of Dodd-Frank along with the consequences of noncompliance issues and the rules that are implied.

With interest rates rising, and with new tax laws potentially putting a damper on the housing market, a resurgence of seller-financing in the residential housing market is a real possibility.

Against this backdrop, with more than three years into Dodd-Frank's seller-financing rules, it is helpful to review the rules, the transactions they do and do not apply to and the consequences of noncompliance. It is also helpful to look at those impacted by the rules, which includes not only the seller-lender and buyer-borrower, but also professionals in the real estate brokerage, mortgage origination and home building industries.

 This topic is of particular importance to real estate sellers and buyers, investors, mortgage loan originators, home builders and related professionals.

  • You will be able to identify real estate transactions to which the Dodd-Frank rules may potentially apply.
