The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said in a press release Wednesday that the $7.2 billion-asset HomeStreet violated RESPA when it entered into agreements with real estate brokers to co-market services through online platforms. The bank also ran afoul of the law when it agreed to rent space in the offices of brokers and homebuilders.
