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 DFI−Bkg. 43 and DFI−Bkg. 44.   We even check the licensing of the broker to make sure they are in compliance with Statute 224.72(1m).
