Florida Local News

 MFI-Miami examines the copies of homeowners’ loan documents from the closing, as well as the lender’s documents, the closing agent’s documents and the appraisal. Unlike our competitors, MFI-Miami looks for more than just HOEPA, RESPA and TILA violations. We search for violations of Florida Statutes 201, 475, 494, 501, 559, 627, 697, and 817.  We also look for UCC violations (Florida Statutes 671-680). These laws were enacted to protect Florida homeowners and are routinely disregarded by brokers and lenders.
