I posted in the lending forum with no luck-hoping for some help here:

In essence, a portion of the block 4 fee is lender required and lender chosen (the settlement fee) and a portion is lender required/borrower chosen (title search, etc).

My issue is how to disclose these pieces of a lump sum fee. Do we give the borrower a provider list for the title services piece with a quote, even though that is only a portion of the total fee quoted for that line?

As I understand it, in many cases the borrower probably has started that portion of the transaction before they have met with our loan officer...

I hope this makes sense..thanks for any input.
