About The Symposium
The Texas Land Developers Association, in partnership with the Seller Finance Coalition, hosts its first annual Texas Home & Mortgage Symposium, with seller financers of homes and land, loan servicers, title professionals, and service providers from across the state in attendance.
A dynamic two days are planned with content-rich presentations and discussions on issues related to the industry – both state and national – and what to expect in the upcoming 86th Texas Legislative Session, including the regulation and enforcement of state statues, rules, and policies related to the mortgage lending environment. As the regulatory policies continue to evolve for this industry, it is increasingly important for our industry to have a seat at the table and be aware of what is going on at both the state and national levels. We’ve had great success federally with efforts to amend the Dodd-Frank Act, but without a strong voice of broad support at the state level, these efforts are for naught.
The Texas Land Developers Association is a statewide trade organization providing necessary information to comply with regulations concerning seller financed transactions and loan servicing. Our members have substantial experience and help each other by pooling information.
TLDA maintains a professional lobbying presence in Austin at the legislature and state agencies, with experience and expertise involving water rights, water availability, and endangered species issues. TLDA members and staff can provide assistance in limiting city, county and state efforts to expand ordinance-making authority.
Our members and staff provide information and implement initiatives involving the Texas Finance Commission, Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending, and at the federal level, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
TLDA has joined the Seller Finance Coalition, LLC., a DC-based coalition of investors that seller-finance property and service the notes, in order to better deal with federal issues which impact our industry.
Who Should Attend?
You. We invite you to join us for this critical conversation in Austin in January. You are on the front lines, providing homes for fellow Texans; opening doors of opportunity that were previously closed; and creating homeowners out of hard workers. The Seller Finance Coalition and the Texas Land Developers Association are making a difference in the lives of so many; yet there are so many more whose lives we can positively touch, through our legislative advocacy and influence with policymakers and regulators, both in Austin and in D.C.
