Retention and management of records is more complicated than just deciding what to keep and for how long. In what form should records be kept? Should we keep more than what the regulations require? If so, what? What about possible litigation needs? Examiner expectations must be met, of course, but other parties, such as law enforcement, auditors, and of course your customers, to name just a few, may require access to information, as well.

To manage an effective program in a cost-effective manner, compliance professionals must rely on information from a broad range of resources within the organization. Records management is the point of convergence of these resources, which is why effective and reliable records management must be part of your Compliance Program.

What You’ll Learn

  • Types of information that constitutes a record that we should retain
  • Retention requirements
  • Best practices we can follow
  • How to set up or enhance bank’s records management program
  • Risks involved in records retention
  • What an effective and comprehensive program looks like
  • How the program should be organized- a taxonomy hierarchy
  • Litigation needs — how does this process factor in
  • Destruction of records and information — when and how should this be done
  • This will be an interactive session with several opportunities for questions and answers, so come prepared to discuss your needs and issues.

Who Should Attend
Anyone involved in the creation, management, and destruction of information and records will benefit from the knowledge and information shared in this session, including compliance officers, auditors, information security and management, IT personnel, senior management, bank counsel, operations, privacy, and others with a vested interest to ensure a cost-effective and comprehensive records management program.

Compliance with the escrow requirements can be tricky. The rules are vague, certain terms are not defined, and we’ve even seen investors make up rules that contradict the regulatory requirements. If you aren’t in compliance, the chances are good that it’s a systemic issue, which can lead to more serious consequences.

While the Regulation hasn’t changed in many years, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) updated their Mortgage Servicing FAQs in June 2021. These updates include many FAQs specific to escrow accounts, escrow account analysis and escrow account deficiencies, shortages and surpluses.

What You’ll Learn

  • CFPB Escrow Accounts FAQs
  • Required vs. Voluntary Escrow Accounts
  • Initial, Annual, Short-Year & Payoff Statements
  • Surpluses, Shortages, & Deficiencies
  • Step-by-Step Escrow Account Analysis
  • TILA’s HPML, TRID, & Flood Insurance Intersections
  • Best Practices, Plain English Answers to Your Questions & Much More!

Who Should Attend
This webinar is designed for consumer real estate loan officers, loan processors, compliance, audit and other loan operations personnel that handle escrow accounts.

And, those responsible for regulatory compliance are often excluded from the process until after an advertisement has been published.

This webinar will help you learn what you can say, what you can’t say, when to say it, etc. Several examples of real-world advertising errors will also be included.

What You’ll Learn

  • FDIC signage and advertising rules

  • Web Sites
  • UDAAP

Who Should Attend
This webinar is for anyone that’s responsible for managing, producing or reviewing advertisements.

Mortgage loan origination is all about the timing. Take this opportunity to learn the trigger points that start the clock ticking and how long the windows remain open. Discover how to create a proper mortgage loan file. Compliance is crucial to protect your institution and sail through the next exam.

After This Webinar You’ll be Able To:

  • Distinguish between a preapproval and an application
  • Explain when to use business days versus calendar days to meet compliance requirements
  • Identify triggering events that determine when compliance notices are required
  • Recognize the importance of documenting triggering events
  • Understand critical regulatory compliance timing requirements

Webinar Details

Meeting critical timing requirements is essential during mortgage loan origination. Have you second guessed whether the document’s delivery date is based on business days or calendar days? Do Saturdays count? Is today Day One, or is it tomorrow? In some cases, disclosures can only be provided so far in advance of a triggering event, while other documents must be provided so many days after an event.

Compilation of a compliant loan file can be so confusing! The process is definitely dependent upon understanding the numerous timing requirements that go beyond those required by TRID. This webinar will take a deep dive into the critical loan compliance timing constraints related to the delivery and receipt of mortgage loan documents during the origination process. Understanding how to create a sequentially dated mortgage loan file will ensure you are better prepared for the next examination or compliance review!

Who Should Attend?

This informative session is designed for mortgage lenders and processors, as well as those responsible for auditing and reviewing loan files, including compliance officers and internal auditors.
