Compliance Plus

The Challenge of Compliance

The regulatory environment for today's mortgage lender has become exceedingly complex. Compliance is more difficult each day, as a cascade of new disclosure and lending requirements are imposed by federal, state and local regulators. With added regulation and enforcement it is becoming very difficult for mortgage lenders to gauge whether their internal compliance systems are functioning properly and whether the continuing cost, in both human and financial terms, of adopting and maintaining adequate regulatory controls can be sustained in a volatile origination market.

At the same time, the absolute risk of non-compliance has become intolerable. Audits by regulators and investors alike are now commonplace and fines, penalties, and loan repurchase demands are escalating. As tough new regulatory standards increase the scope and absolute number of loans that must be evaluated carefully for compliance, investors have become acutely aware that several regulatory changes impose liability on the purchaser of a mortgage loan for compliance errors made by its originator. It is no surprise that investors are increasingly demanding, prior to funding a loan purchase, that originators provide loan specific data in an electronic format complete enough to permit comprehensive automated compliance reviews on each loan to be purchased.

Lenders, in order to cope with these added regulatory compliance risks, are faced with an immediate and compelling need to re-evaluate, and upgrade, their internal systems capacity to recognize, incorporate, and respond to mandated regulatory changes.
