It protects home buyers by eliminating kickbacks and referral fees that are totally unnecessary, which in turn increases the final cost of purchasing a hone.

The two primary purposes are
1) to require complete disclosures of settlement (buying and/or selling) costs and...
2) to eliminate unfair business practices by service providers involved in the transaction.

In my experience as a home buyer, RESPA has not benefited me one bit.  As a matter of fact, it's been a pain in the ass with all it's built-in delays.  I have not seen any benefit to home sellers either.  I do know who benefits, but that's not for this discussion.
