Mortgage Servicing Compliance

In a sense, servicing consumer mortgage loans has always been a bit of the "wild west" of compliance, meaning there was little in the way of rules and regulations. But thanks to the financial crisis and resulting exposure of unsavory practices, rules were put into place by the Dodd-Frank Act. In addition, the CFPB just issued regulations that further the requirements mortgage servicers must follow. 

These rules include many "standard" requirements dealing with periodic statements and escrows, for example, but most of the requirements focus on how servicers deal with distressed borrowers - from mandating "early intervention" and processes around loss mitigation applications, to foreclosure timing rules.

We'll focus on these critical areas as well as the rules, and provide practical advice on how to meet both regulatory and borrower expectations.
