{online version - under revision}
TMBA Deskbook

This edition builds on the strength of its predecessor First Edition, and its subsequent updates. The goal of the Editorial Board in creating this Second Edition was to build upon the outstanding foundation of the First Edition by re-writing each section in such a way as to incorporate the previous updates, and any additional changes and developments in the law, into unified articles on the various topics covered in the Deskbook.  As with the First Edition, the Deskbook is still a compilation of articles contributed by many Texas practitioners. 

The Deskbook is organized in the order of interest and questions that a mortgage lender or broker new to Texas law and practices may have when first entering the vast Texas market. It is intended to be an authoritative and convenient reference for residential mortgage lenders, mortgage brokers, legal counsel, regulatory compliance officers, and members of other professions and trades that provide services to the residential mortgage lending industry.
