Borrowers' Rights

Welcome to the Borrowers' Rights section of FindLaw's Real Estate Law Center. When you enter into a loan agreement, you have certain rights protecting you, including the right to shop for the best loan, the right to ask for a good faith estimate of loan charges, and the right to know how much the mortgage broker is receiving in fees. It is vitally important to educate yourself about these rights in order to avoid mortgage scammers and help get the best loan for your needs, which also requires borrowers to read the "fine print." This section contains articles explaining your right to fair housing and lending and other rights against mortgage discrimination and predatory lending.
