Compliance Responsibilities when a Mortgage is in Default: Dealing with Foreclosures and Loss Mitigation
This webinar will discuss the requirements and provide guidance on the proper steps to follow to ensure you understand all the requirements when considering or initiating a foreclosure action.
Unfortunately, the last couple years have seen many borrowers in trouble, whether because of residual pandemic issues or the result of a general economic downturn. And this sadly means many borrowers have defaulted on their mortgage loans, forcing lenders and servicers to consider foreclosing. And with the many moratoria against foreclosing now having expired, lenders and servicers have seen many foreclosures initiated in a very short period of time. This trend is expected to continue. What are you permitted to do? What notices must be provided? The loss mitigation and foreclosure process is by its nature a state-specific endeavor, but there are federal requirements as well. The CFPB and other federal agencies have instituted numerous requirements that must be met before foreclosures can be initiated.
