Or, during the walk-through, something was discovered that was different from the contract provisions. Rather than argue about it, the seller said, "I'll just give you a credit. Easy peasy."

Not so fast, because the CFPB makes nodistinction between a difference that deviates from the initially disclosed GFE to the consumer's detriment and a difference that clearly benefits the consumer.

Not automatically so "easy peasy." Who will judge if the compensation is sufficient for the repair? What if it costs more to fix than the seller gives? Then it is not to the benefit of the seller.

I'm sure the gov't did this so that they did not have to be the judge in all these cases.
