Taking the Mystery Out of Closing
& Understanding the Hud-1 Settlement Statement

with Attorney Fred Kross on Oct 15th

Fred KrossOn Wednesday, October 15th 6:30PM at the the Atlanta REIA North Meeting located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, Georgia, Attorney Fred Kross will discuss the typical real estate closing process and will dissect the Hud-1 Settlement Statement and explain how to read this important document used in almost all traditional real estate transactions.

The HUD-1 (closing or settlement statement) is a form used by a settlement or closing agent that itemizes all charges imposed on a borrower and seller in a real estate transaction. This form gives a picture of the closing transaction, and provides each party with a complete list of incoming and outgoing funds. “Buyers” are referred to as “borrowers” on this form even if no loan is involved. The HUD-1 is the road map used to document where the funds in a purchase and sale are applied.

The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) requires the HUD-1 form be used as the standard real estate settlement form in all transactions in the U.S. involving federally related mortgage loans. RESPA states borrowers should be given a copy of the HUD-1 at least one day prior to settlement, although entries may still be coming in a few hours before closing. Although borrowers are supposed to get a copy of the closing statement the day before closing, it is rare that this occurs. Most buyers and sellers study the form on with their real-estate agent and the settlement agent. The more people who review it, the greater the likelihood of detecting any errors.

Attorney Fred Kross is an experienced Real Estate and Bankruptcy Attorney who has closed over 1,000 transactions and has been a practicing Attorney for over 25 years. Prior to becoming an attorney, Fred received a degree in Real Estate and worked as an appraiser. Prior to becoming an attorney, he was a million dollar producer as a real estate agent.

Come join us on Wednesday, October 15th at 6:30PM, as Attorney Kross takes the mystery out of this important topic.
