Conover v. Patriot Land Transfer: RESPA’s Statute of Limitations and Equitable Tolling Clash Again


The plaintiffs sought to rely on the doctrine of equitable tolling to try to avoid the statute of limitations. Risky move.

A recent court decision was handed down in a standard Section 8 RESPA claim case in which a title agency supplied borrower leads and data lists in exchange for lender referrals. Being that the court issued the decision in the context of a motion to dismiss; allegations were accepted as true though not evaluated. However, this recent decision clarifies how lower courts are tackling RESPA’s statute of limitation.
