New RESPA Settlement Cost Booklet

Rumor: HUD has published a new Settlement Cost Booklet
This rumor is true. The new booklet appeared on HUD’s website on July 15th.
Rumor: We have to throw out our existing supply of booklets and start using the new booklet immediately.
This rumor is false. You may use the versions of the booklet published in December 2009 or January 2010, or you may use the new booklet. When you exhaust your existing supply of booklets be sure print or order the latest version of the booklet.
