Mortgage sub-service LoanCare made a series of layoffs on June 17 as the need to help borrowers affected by the pandemic continues to dwindle.

LoanCare routinely manages its resources in conjunction with its work demands, Dave Worrall, its president, said in a statement. Due to COVID-19, Congress has mandated repairers grant abstentions to mortgage borrowers and the company had hired staff to deal with them.

“We’ve added capacity to cover needs during the pandemic and associated relief programs,” Worrall said. “The work related to these programs has started to wind down, so we have adjusted our staff.”

Forbearance loans accounted for 0.85% of managers’ portfolio volume as of May 31, down from 0.94% a month earlier, according to the latest data from the Mortgage Bankers Association. About 425,000 people are currently subject to forbearance plans.

“Serving agents are reducing remaining forbearance loans, even as the pace of monthly forbearance outflows slowed in May to a new survey low,” said Marina Walsh, vice president of analytics at the MBA industry, in a press release.

LoanCare did not disclose the number of positions cut, although it is listed as having 982 employees on LinkedIn. Membership has increased by 19% over the past two years, but there have been no additions in the past six months.

Affected employees are receiving outplacement services, Worrall said.

LoanCare, based in Virginia Beach, Va., is one of the largest contractors in the mortgage industry. Its ultimate parent company is Fidelity National Financial, which is the nation’s largest underwriter of title insurance on a holding company basis.

The company has three other offices: Jacksonville, Florida; Coraopolis, Pennsylvania; and Chandler, Arizona. A check of worker accommodation and retraining notification sites in all four states showed no LoanCare deposits.

“As the market continues to evolve and opportunities arise, our door is always open to add new members to the team,” added Worrall.

These layoffs show that no sector of the mortgage business is immune to downsizing.

While the initial cuts, including those from Better.com infamous zoom shotrather focused on mortgage sales and related personnel, some of the more recent terminations cover other areas.

Authenticate, for example, pulled about 25% of its payroll as it focused on generating revenue from existing customers instead of focusing on new ones.

Real estate brokers Compass and Redfin have also decided to reduce headcount by 10% and 6% respectively, although mortgage economists still predict the purchase loan segment remain strong throughout 2022.

Reverse Mortgage Lender American Advisory Group also laid off an undisclosed number of employees. The reverse mortgage product, while still a small portion of total mortgages, is designed to serve seniors who are home-rich but cash-poor, which should help boost business in the current economic turmoil.

Other recent layoffs from Wyndham Capital, FirstBank and Open Mortgage involved term mortgage sales staff.

David Fell of Hamptons said: ‘As a rule of thumb, a one percentage point rate hike today puts around twice as much pressure on mortgage household finances as the same rate hike ten years ago. year.

“The selling of house price growth and mortgage debt taken on by households means that fairly limited base rate hikes by historical standards have the ability to add significant pressure on household finances.”

Today’s rise in Bank Rates will also have a bigger impact as buyers have become accustomed to ultra-low rates. Over the past 13 years, the bank rate has been less than 1 pc. The shift to a higher interest rate environment is likely to have a much bigger impact on market sentiment, especially against the backdrop of the cost of living crisis, when buyers see the food bills , energy and fuel soar.

The Bank Rate would have to rise to 7% to have the same impact on household finances as the Bank Rate of 17% recorded in November 1979, Hamptons found.

With a discount rate of 7%, the average first-time buyer would need to spend 66% of their monthly salary to cover a mortgage on an average home. At the peak of the bank rate in 1979, the share was only 63 percent.

Lewis Shaw of Shaw Financial Services, a mortgage broker, said: “We have a generation of homeowners who have never seen a typical base rate or the mortgage rates that flow from it. This means that their frame of reference will now have to adjust and we all know that can be difficult.

HomeLight agreed to acquire Accept.inc, a fintech lender specializing in cash-equivalent products.

The acquiring company, a real estate technology company with a financing transaction by pre-existing cash offerdid not disclose the exact terms of the all-stock deal.

The majority of the Accept.inc team will take on new roles within HomeLight as the two operations are combined, HomeLight CEO Drew Uher said in an email response to questions.

“With this acquisition, HomeLight is now not only the largest agent-focused cash offer program in California and Colorado, but also in the entire country,” Uher said, noting that its business in this area has seen 500% growth year over year. annual growth.

In addition to announcing the acquisition, HomeLight said Thursday it raised an additional $115 million in capital, including $60 million in Series D stock and $55 million in debt financing. Its total funding is now around $645 million and its valuation is $1.7 billion.

HomeLight’s backers include Zeev Ventures, Menlo Ventures, Group 11, Crosslink Capital, Bullpen Capital, Montage Ventures, STCAP, Citi Ventures and Google Ventures.

The acquisition of Accept.inc will be HomeLight’s third since 2019. It previously bought a digital mortgage lender eaves to start an in-house mortgage unit, and Disclosures.io, a listing management technology provider.

Main advantages

Loans for as low as $2,000

It’s handy to be able to borrow as little as $2,000, especially for those who only need the funds to cover a much-needed home or car repair.

Relatively low APR

Borrowers with a good credit score can benefit from a competitive fixed rate. This is ideal for anyone looking to consolidate high interest debt into a single loan.

No setup fees or prepayment penalties

An origination fee is an amount added to the total amount borrowed. It is intended to cover the administrative costs associated with the loan. A prepayment penalty is sometimes charged to a borrower if he repays his loan earlier than expected. The fact that Citibank does not charge origination fees or prepayment penalties automatically saves borrowers money.

Long repayment plan

With 12, 24, 36, 48 or 60 month repayment terms, borrowers can pay more each month and withdraw the loan sooner or pay it off at a slower rate with lower monthly payments.

What could be improved

Must have a Citibank deposit account

A huge hoop to jump through is Citibank’s rule that only current account holders can apply for personal loans. Unless a borrower has held a Citibank deposit account for at least 12 months, they are not eligible to apply.

Mailed checks can take five days or more to arrive

The only way to receive funds in one day is to opt for direct deposit. Customers who prefer to receive a check can wait five or more business days from the time the loan has been approved.

No opportunity to prequalify

With most personal loans, borrowers can prequalify. They provide the lender with basic information and the lender runs a “soft” credit check that does not impact their credit rating. Once a lender has completed the due diligence, they let the borrower know if they are likely to be approved for the loan, and if so, what their APR will be. With Citibank, a borrower must complete an application and go through the entire approval process before knowing if they qualify or how much they will pay in interest on the loan. This rigorous credit check will reduce their credit score by a few points.

Rising Reserve Bank cash rates may spell disaster for mortgage borrowers, but Inge Meldgaard hopes higher rates will boost income from her savings.

“I was extremely happy,” the 69-year-old retiree told ABC News.

When it comes to passing on higher rates to savers, most banks have so far been slow to do so.

But for low-income people like Ms Meldgaard, their lives depend on it.

“When people are on such a low income as I am, even a few thousand dollars a year makes a difference,” Ms Meldgaard said.

The interest Ms Meldgaard earns on her savings from the bank has been a crucial part of her income since she retired in early 2006 due to ill health.

She said that at the time she was earning up to 10% on her savings, meaning she could support herself without a job or a pension.

Savers have suffered from years of low interest rates

Over the past few years, with historically low interest rates, there has been a steady erosion of savings rates across all banks.

What is Mortgage Fraud? https://texansnflofficialproshop.com/what-is-mortgage-fraud/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 21:01:03 +0000 https://texansnflofficialproshop.com/what-is-mortgage-fraud/ Mortgage fraud occurs when information is falsified or withheld during the application process to manipulate the terms of the loan or a bank’s decision to approve it.

  • Mortgage fraud occurs when information is falsified or withheld during the application process to manipulate the terms of the loan or a bank’s decision to approve it.
  • Borrowers and homeowners can commit or be victims of mortgage fraud.
  • Scams targeting homeowners facing foreclosure are among the most common types of mortgage fraud.

Mortgage fraud is a serious crime, and it is one that borrowers and homeowners can both commit and be victimized.

When frauds are committed by mortgage borrowers, it’s often because they wanted to buy a home, but thought their finances would prevent them from getting approved. Things like lying on your mortgage application or misrepresenting your income are considered mortgage fraud and have serious legal repercussions.

But borrowers and homeowners can also fall victim to fraudsters looking to take advantage of people going through a confusing or stressful process. Homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments or facing foreclosure are particularly vulnerable, as some of the most common mortgage fraud schemes target struggling homeowners.

What is Mortgage Fraud?

Mortgage fraud involves providing false or misleading information to a lender in order to obtain approval for a mortgage loan. The FBI Defines Mortgage Fraud as “a lie that influences a bank’s decision”. Scams that target homeowners facing foreclosure also fit the FBI’s definition of mortgage fraud.

How is mortgage fraud detected?

With rising mortgage rates and high house prices, buying a home has become less affordable. “Historically, fraud has become a bigger issue for the mortgage industry during times of strong or weak mortgage demand,” said Nick Larson, senior director of strategy and business development at LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “It may entice consumers to falsify income, liabilities, and occupancy to improve the odds of getting a higher mortgage.”

Financial institutions watch for signs of fraudulent activity by carefully checking all information they receive from applicants.

Stricter underwriting processes and advances in technology have made it harder for loan seekers to get away with submitting false information. For instance,


mortgage lenders

Generally verify the income information you provide by requesting your transcript directly from the IRS. Some lenders also have the ability to obtain information about your assets directly from your bank with your permission.

Lenders will also look for any suspicious activity related to the specific transaction. For example, if you’re buying a house to use as your primary residence several hours away from your workplace and you’re not a remote worker, this may be a red flag. Or if a home is appraising for a significantly higher amount than what other similar homes in the area are appraised at, it would require further investigation.

But fraud can still be difficult for lenders and law enforcement to detect. This is partly because it is relatively rare – in the second quarter of 2020, only 0.61% of mortgage applications contained fraud, according to CoreLogic.

Most of these cases involved borrowers misrepresenting their finances in their application so they could buy a home. Large plans are rarer, but they can cost financial institutions more.

Types of Mortgage Fraud

Mortgage fraud falls into two categories: profit fraud and housing fraud.

Fraud for profit

This type of mortgage fraud is often committed by people who work in the mortgage industry, such as loan officers, appraisers or real estate lawyers. The purpose of scams that fall under this umbrella is to make money.

The FBI prioritizes the investigation of cases of fraud for profit.

Housing Fraud

This type of mortgage fraud is usually committed by borrowers. Housing fraud, as the name suggests, involves providing false information to mortgage lenders in order to purchase a home. An example of housing fraud is inflating your income on your mortgage application in order to be able to buy a house for more than you would generally be entitled to.

Examples of Mortgage Fraud

Mortgage fraud generally falls into one of the two categories of fraud listed above, but there are countless different ways fraud can be committed. Here are some of the most common diets consumers should watch out for.

Seizure scams

The seizure process can be stressful, confusing, and scary, making those who go through it a prime target for bad actors. Fraudsters may offer to help the homeowner through the process, charging a hefty fee to negotiate loan modifications with the homeowner’s lender or servicing agent. Or, they could offer a way out of foreclosure by asking the landlord to “temporarily” transfer the deed to them. Then they can sell the property or ask the landlord to pay them rent while letting the property go into foreclosure.

Equity Skimming

In this scheme, an investor has a “straw buyer”, who is a loan seeker working on behalf of someone else, to obtain a mortgage loan in order to purchase a property. Once the property is purchased, the straw buyer uses a quitclaim deed to give the property to the investor. The investor then rents the property for profit while failing to make the payments on the mortgage. Eventually, the property is seized.

Ownership reversal

Flipping property, as most people understand it, is not illegal. But illegal property reversal occurs when an individual buys a house, an appraiser artificially inflates the value of that house, and then it is immediately resold for a profit.

Occupation Fraud

Borrowers generally get lower interest rates and can make lower down payments on properties they intend to live in as their primary residence. If a person intends to use a home as a second home or investment property but tells their lender that they will use it as their first home, they have committed occupancy fraud.

Assessment Fraud

Evaluation

fraud occurs when an appraiser fails to appraise a property based on its actual market value. Since lenders won’t lend more than an appraisal says a home is worth, appraisals can be artificially inflated so that the market value matches the list price. Unscrupulous appraisers can also artificially reduce the market value of a home so that the buyer can buy the home for less, then turn around and sell it for a profit.

How to report mortgage fraud

According to the Department of Justice, there are a few different entities you can report suspected mortgage fraud to.

To make a report to the FBI, contact your nearest field office or call 1-800-225-5324. You can also report online.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development accepts tips through its direct line. Dial 1-800-347-3735.

If you think you may be the target of a foreclosure scam, you can contact the Homeownership Preservation Foundation’s HOPE Helpline at 1-888-995-HOPE (4673).

The Federal Trade Commission also has a website where you can report fraud.

How to protect yourself from mortgage fraud

Homeowners who are in arrears and at risk of foreclosure should be especially vigilant, as they are more likely to be the target of mortgage fraud.

“Don’t hire unsolicited companies, meaning anyone you haven’t contacted first,” Angel Hernandez, vice president of industry and regulatory affairs at Stavysaid.

If a company advertises help with loan modifications or loss mitigation, check with your lender or servicer first to see if that company is reputable.

You can make sure you’re working with reputable companies by hiring a HUD-certified housing counselor. These advisers offer free or low-cost advice. If you’re approached by a company that charges a hefty fee to help you, they’re probably not reputable.

To find a HUD-certified housing counselor, you can search online or call 1-800-569-4287.

You can also avoid scams by working proactively with your mortgage lender or repairer. Homeowners can often be afraid to speak to their lender when they’re late with a payment, but the lender is often in the best position to help you avoid a loss.

Hernandez also says that while borrowers are often hesitant to contact them, lenders and managers want to help their borrowers resolve delinquencies. “The success of a repairer is directly tied to the success of the owners they serve,” says Hernandez.

With long-term fixed rate mortgage rates rising this year and house prices continuing to rise, the adjustable rate mortgage has made some comeback.

With long-term fixed rate mortgage rates rising rapidly this year and house prices continuing to rise, the adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) has made quite a comeback.

ARMs fell out of favor a few years ago, offering little advantage over historically low fixed rate loans. The rise in borrower interest in ARMs is reminiscent of the last housing boom of the 2000s, when rates were high.



Unlike then, underwriting standards are now much stricter and ARMs do not have hidden pitfalls such as upfront interest rates.

“The types of ARM products available are very different. For example, you now have ARM products that have fixed periods of five, seven or 10 years, compared to ARMs with different types of riskier features in the 2000s,” said Joel Kan, associate vice president of forecasting. economic and industrial MBA.

Lenders also consider the borrower’s current income against potentially larger monthly payments in the future.

Adjustable rate mortgages may be suitable for buyers who do not intend to stay in the home longer than the initial rate period. In today’s pricing environment, they can also facilitate affordability for other shoppers. But ARMs still come with risks that fixed-rate mortgages don’t.

“When the fixed term expires, that lower rate expires, whether it’s five to seven years, they need to be prepared for the higher payment, or the option to refinance or sell the home,” Kan said.

Applications for adjustable rate mortgages currently represent about 9% of all mortgage applications, so still a small share, and below the mid-2000s. But ARM mortgage volume has grown 70% since the beginning of this year.

Rising mortgage rates across the board have slowed borrowing by potential buyers. The MBA reported that the number of mortgage applications in the last week of May hit a three-and-a-half-year low.

The $50,000 student loan forgiveness gets a new boost.

Here’s what you need to know — and what it means for student loans.

Student loans

As President Joe Biden considers student loan forgiveness for millions of student borrowers, new report sent to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) shows how $50,000 in student loan forgiveness could yield significant benefits. Here are the main results:

  • $50,000 student loan forgiveness: 30 million borrowers would have no student loan debt.
  • $40,000 student loan forgiveness: 28 million borrowers would have no student loan debt.
  • $30,000 student loan forgiveness: 24 million borrowers would have no student loan debt.
  • $20,000 student loan forgiveness: 20 million borrowers would have no student loan debt.
  • $10,000 student loan forgiveness: 13 million borrowers would have no student loan debt.

Warren and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who have both championed up to $50,000 in student loan forgiveness, are still pushing Biden to forgive that amount of student loan debt for millions of dollars. student borrowers. Civic and social organizations have joined the fight to encourage Biden to consider a higher student loan forgiveness amount. According to the latest student debt statistics, there are 45 million student borrowers who collectively owe $1.7 trillion in student debt. Therefore, canceling $50,000 in student loans would cancel all federal student loan debt for the vast majority of student borrowers. In contrast, the US Department of Education said $50,000 in student loan forgiveness would eliminate all federal student loan debt for 36 million student borrowers.


Student Loan Forgiveness: Top Benefits of $50,000 Student Loan Forgiveness

According to researchers from Princeton and the University of California, who conducted this analysis, there are many other benefits to higher amounts of large-scale student loan forgiveness. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • $50,000 in student loan forgiveness would help 95% of student borrowers who are in default or student loan default;
  • The increase in student loan forgiveness massively benefits less wealthy student borrowers, as wealthier people rarely borrow or pay off their student debt any faster; and
  • Canceling $50,000 in student loans will dramatically reduce disparities and inequalities.

Regarding student loan forgiveness, the authors argue that more student loan forgiveness is better to advance equity and economic security. Opponents of student loan forgiveness disagree, citing the potential cost of $1 trillion to forgive $50,000 in student loans for borrowers. They also note that potentially millions of student borrowers could be barred from Biden’s student loan forgiveness.


Will Biden Forgive $50,000 in Student Loans?

Will Biden Forgive $50,000 in Student Loans? Biden has now canceled $25 billion in student loans. The White House has denied a report that the president made a final decision on whether to cancel student loans. This has sparked new hope among progressives and advocates for student loan forgiveness. Biden, however, backed $10,000 in student loan forgiveness. As the authors argue, $50,000 in student loan forgiveness would have monumental social and economic benefits for student borrowers. Biden said he would not cancel $50,000 in student loans for borrowers. That said, with consumers facing high inflation, record gasoline prices, a struggling stock market and economic uncertainty, Biden could reconsider and forgive up to $50,000 in student loan debt for borrowers. As the president decides on next steps, take some time to think about your next decision for student loan repayment. Even if the president cancels student debt, you may not qualify or still have student loan debt. Therefore, consider all of your options for getting out of debt and saving money. Here are some popular ways to conquer student loan debt:

Here’s why some lenders choose IPEN over RON https://texansnflofficialproshop.com/heres-why-some-lenders-choose-ipen-over-ron/ Thu, 02 Jun 2022 21:50:34 +0000 https://texansnflofficialproshop.com/heres-why-some-lenders-choose-ipen-over-ron/ The pandemic has changed the way people do everything from work to school to grocery shopping and medical appointments, and the real estate industry has struggled to keep pace with the demand for digitization.

The pandemic has changed the way people do everything from work to school to grocery shopping and medical appointments, and the real estate industry has struggled to keep pace with the demand for digitization. HousingWire recently spoke with EscrowTab co-founder Brendon Weiss about how lenders can streamline their eClosings with the help of IPEN.

HousingWire: What are some of the potential challenges lenders and borrowers face with the traditional in-person signing process and how can In-Person Electronic Notarization, or IPEN, solve some of these challenges?

Brendon Weiss: Lenders and owners will agree, the traditional in-person signing process has long been plagued with inefficiencies. The challenges that come with traditional methods used to complete in-person signatures are not “new” obstacles; they were only created After evident in recent years as digitalization has accelerated in an increasingly technological world. Can you imagine needing to pay for your groceries in cash or by check? We neither. Soon, we believe that printing and signing hard copies of loan documents will also be a thing of the past.

Electronic In-Person Notarization (IPEN) is rapidly gaining traction across the industry with lenders, title agencies, and settlement firms due to its convenience, cost savings, and improved experience of the borrower. IPEN allows a signer and a notary signing agent in the same location to apply the signer’s electronic signatures to digital documents. The notary signing agent is then authorized to eNotarize the documents without any paper involved.

To better understand the benefits of IPEN, first consider the implications of facilitating traditional in-person notarization. All documents are paper records, which have a financial cost to print, costs related to administrative hours of preparation, processing and maintenance. Paper records may be more susceptible to data security risks or human error, such as skipped pages or misplaced signatures. Handling tangible paper records with or without having to correct for human error can lead to a delay in processing.

As the traditional in-person notarization process can involve hundreds of paper documents, you also lose the green appeal of modern borrowers who expect a paperless process.

IPEN enables electronic locks with improved security, compliance and accessibility for all parties involved and, according to the vendor, can be implemented faster than other solutions available on the market. An IPEN solution such as EscrowTab helps streamline closing operations with reduced loan lifecycles, while adding value to the borrower experience with convenient full electronic closing options.

HW: IPEN offers lenders and borrowers a level of automation that a traditional signature does not. How do current market conditions require flexible and convenient solutions like EscrowTab?

computer: In an era of high margin compression and low closing volume, implementing a solution like EscrowTab would position lenders and title agencies for streamlined efficiency across your business.

While some solutions take months to implement, EscrowTab bypasses system integration bottlenecks and allows companies to start realizing cost savings as soon as possible.

EscrowTab’s solution is designed to work as close to paper as possible, except better. This includes features such as allowing real-time document changes without redrawing documents, and the ability to erase a single page if a borrower signs in the wrong place. And because all of EscrowTab’s services – DocPrep, eNote creation, eClosing, and eVault – were designed and built in-house, everything works seamlessly for the benefit of users.

HW: Why would a lender, title agency, or settlement company choose an in-person electronic notarization (IPEN) method over remote online notarization (RON), which has been talked about in the media for a few years?

computer: In-Person Electronic Notarization (IPEN) has been around for many years, often referred to as electronic notarization. Even though this type of notarization is legal nationwide and has versatile advantages over other notarization methods, few companies offer a simple and intuitive product based on IPEN.

Only 40 states have legislation in place allowing the use of RON. Of those 40, several are still operating under temporary emergency orders issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Temporary orders may – for now – still authorize the use of RON; however, there is no guarantee that states with temporary policies will pass permanent legislation.

A national IPEN solution offers simplicity and consistency for the mandatary notary and the borrower. In states where RON is approved for use, all parties must meet multi-factor verification requirements. Acceptable multi-factor requirements are state-specific and may include knowledge-based authentication (KBA), automated government-issued photo ID authentication, or visual ID inspection. identity using two-way video technology. Accessing multi-factor verification requirements may not be feasible for all parties, who may have inadequate technology or feel intimidated by the process.

When using IPEN methods in eClosings, tangible paper documents are eliminated, but the in-person connection that is highly valued by many borrowers, title companies and signing agents, remains. Tech-savvy borrowers can feel confident going through a streamlined electronic closing process with guidance from an industry professional by their side.

HW: What does EscrowTab bring to the market that lenders and title agencies haven’t experienced yet, and how will you continue to bring value to the industry?

computer: The past few years have forced the global adaptation to remote work – not just work, but adaptation to living a digital life. It’s safe to assume that the accelerated acceptance of digitized transactions is a trend that borrowers would like to see trickle down to other processes, especially if it translates to increased convenience for all parties. Borrowers’ expectations for efficiency will only increase. For lenders and title agencies, the question is no longer “if” you should offer electronic closing solutions, but rather “how?” »

There are many electronic closing solutions that lenders and title agencies can choose from to ensure borrowers have a modern and secure experience. Where EscrowTab is ahead of the competition is our simplicity and accessibility – and the ability for lenders to maintain their current processes.

EscrowTab uses in-person electronic notarization using an EscrowTab compatible tablet and stylus.
