The U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals held that a recorder of mortgages who retains excess recording fees and does not share them with a third party is not in violation of section 8(b) of RESPA which prohibits the splitting of fees with a third party. The Court held portion of the fees paid to the county recorder of deeds did not constitute payment to a third party.
