12 U.S.C. § 2614—Jurisdiction Of Courts And Statutes Of Limitation Under The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA)

As a resource for class action defense attorneys who defend against RESPA (Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act) class actions, we provide the text of RESPA. Congress provided for the jurisdiction of courts and for statutes of limitation for private rights of action under RESPA in 12 U.S.C. § 2614, which provides:

§ 2614. Jurisdiction of courts; limitations

Any action pursuant to the provisions of section 2605, 2607, or 2608 of this title may be brought in the United States district court or in any other court of competent jurisdiction, for the district in which the property involved is located, or where the violation is alleged to have occurred, within 3 years in the case of a violation of section 2605 of this title and 1 year in the case of a violation of section 2607 or 2608 of this title from the date of the occurrence of the violation, except that actions brought by the Secretary, the Attorney General of any State, or the insurance commissioner of any State may be brought within 3 years from the date of the occurrence of the violation.

NOTE: Sections 2611, 2612 and 2613 were repealed in 1996.
