Real Estate Escrow Accounts & Flood Insurance
Proper handling of escrow accounts and flood insurance is critical. No one wants to find themselves on the wrong side of an enforcement action or lawsuit. Attend this webinar to learn the important aspects of these two issues, including initial calculation and notice requirements.

Improper handling of escrow accounts and flood insurance has led to enforcement actions and litigations. Escrow for taxes and insurance (AKA impound accounts), whether voluntary or required, comes with a host of calculation and notification requirements. The same is true for flood insurance. Unfortunately, mistakes and miscalculations can cause examination issues, consumer complaints, and risk. This webinar will explore these two issues from initial calculation and notice requirements to ongoing annual and other requirements.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This informative session is directed to staff members who deal with initial and ongoing escrow and flood insurance requirements and notices, as well as those who work with outside third parties charged with these responsibilities. Audit, compliance, and risk management staff will also benefit.
