(a)Enforcement policy. It is the policy of the Secretary regarding RESPA enforcement matters to cooperate with Federal, State, or local agencies having supervisory powers over lenders or other persons with responsibilities under RESPA. Federal agencies with supervisory powers over lenders may use their powers to require compliance with RESPA. In addition, failure to comply with RESPA may be grounds for administrative action by the Secretary under 2 CFR part 2424 concerning debarment, suspension, ineligibility of contractors and grantees, or under part 25 of this title concerning the HUD Mortgagee Review Board. Nothing in this paragraph is a limitation on any other form of enforcement that may be legally available.
(c)Violations of section 9 of RESPA (12 U.S.C. 2608) or § 3500.16. Any person who violates section 3500.16 of this part shall be deemed to violate section 9 of RESPA and shall be sanctioned accordingly.
(d)Investigations. The procedures for investigations and investigational proceedings are set forth in 24 CFR part 3800.
