Yes, FTC Safeguard Rules Apply to Real Estate Professionals

Lenders and mortgage brokers already know that they must meet new FTC Safeguards rules by December 2022 or face daily fines. Real Estate agencies, settlement companies and real estate appraisers may be surprised to find out that they qualify as financial institutions as well, under the category of “finders,” or those who facilities financial transactions. The new Safeguards rule specifically mentions several types of real estate professionals, as well as an exemption for financial institutions that hold information for fewer than 5,000 customers.
