Understanding Texas

Texas lending laws, a different breed

Texas is a fertile and consistent market for real estate transactions both in times of national recession and during economic booms. It is also a vast state regulated by extremely complex home lending laws. Although home equity lending had been barred by a generations-old provision in the Texas Constitution, we proudly worked for over two decades with lenders’ groups and our state legislators to finally enact home equity lending legislation in Texas. And, home equity will continue to be a topic our Texas legislature will deliberate for years to come. Today, at both the national and state levels, we are seeing a rapid transformation of mortgage lending and related laws and regulations. We will continue to stay abreast of these changes to determine how they might affect your business. We’ll also do our part to fight for a regulatory environment that favors free markets and equality under the law.

 

Special training

It’s not just the regulation of home lending in Texas that is unique. With 254 counties, there is significant variation across Texas in local and county customs and record-keeping. It takes a company well-versed in local regulation and local experience to manage the unique challenges presented by this great state. Hollerbach & Associates guides national lenders and settlement services firms through these complexities with special, in-depth training by qualified local instructors.
