The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Federal Reserve Inspector General made his findings of the investigation of discrimination in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) public Monday, stating the CFPB has made progress in combatting discrimination, but still was work to do. Last week, legislation was introduced to replace the director of CFPB with a five-person committee to combat the alleged overreach of the Bureau, according to House Financial Services Committee (HFSC) Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas).Allegations of workplace discrimination within the CFPB arose in 2013 when documents were leaked by employees to the media. Employees alleged they were givin unfair evaluations based on gender, race, and age, not job performance. Head of the CFPB Rirchard Cordray admitted the employee evaluation system used in 2012 and 2013 was unfair and launched his own internal report last year. Cordray’s report found black and Hispanic workers, those over age 40, those outside Washington, D.C., and those in the union were more likely to get bad performance evaluations under the system, which worsened their pay and career advancement prospects.The inspector general’s review found that in three of the CFPB’s six divisions in fiscal year 2012, white employees received higher performance ratings than their black colleagues, and the same was true in two of the six divisions when it came to Hispanic co-workers. The report released Monday found that the CFPB’s policies for promoting diversity and inclusion within its workforce fell short of what was necessary to achieve the goals set at the end of fiscal year 2013.While the inspector general’s own review and the review of an outside consulting firm found there was a “statistically significant” discrepancy, there was no evidence of an intentional policy to target nonwhite, non-male employees, according to the report.“The results of the external consulting firm’s analysis of the CFPB’s fiscal year 2012 and fiscal year 2013 performance ratings indicated statistically significant disparities among CFPB employees across certain demographic groups. However, these statistically significant differences do not necessarily indicate discrimination and could be due to a wide variety of explanations, such as actual differences in employee performance,” the report said.HSFC Committee Chairman Hensarling said the report findings show the CFPB “is a very troubled bureaucracy” whose managers “seem to have a real problem when it comes to how they treat minority employees.””Each day, it becomes more apparent that the CFPB is an unaccountable Washington bureaucracy in need of real reforms,” Texas GOP Rep. Jeb Hensarling said in a statement.The CFPB has since scrapped the old evaluation system and said it has taken steps to improve diversity within their organization.”The CFPB appreciates the OIG’s affirmation of diversity and inclusion efforts as critical to the overall development and performance of an organization. The CFPB concurs with the OIG’s recommendations regarding additional policies and enhancements to the Bureau’s diversity and inclusion efforts, and has already made significant progress in addressing the recommendations since the close of the evaluation period in October 2014,” the CFPB said in a statement in the report.

MERSCORP is Victorious in Appellate Courts

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media. He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago MERSCORP was victorious in two recent appellate court decisions: one in the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in a Wyoming bankruptcy court that rejected the “split the note” theory and one in the Appellate Division of the Fourth Judicial Department in New York that rules a MERS mortgage was valid.In the Wyoming case, Barney v. Bank of America, a bankruptcy trustee argued that a mortgage once assigned to MERS and subsequently assigned to BAC Home Loans was unenforceable because neither MERS nor BAC Home Loans held the note at the time each entity was the mortgagee identified in the local land records, according to MERS.The Tenth Circuit Court cited a ruling in a previous case which held that “The Trustee has pointed to no Wyoming authority that prohibits the loan originator from agreeing to have someone other than the beneficial owner of the debt hold the mortgage and enforce the debt as its agent. We note that Wyoming has a statute that contemplates conveying real estate to a mortgagee in a representative capacity, which suggests that Wyoming allows original parties to a note and mortgage to name someone other than the noteholder as the mortgagee.”“We are pleased that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth District affirmed the Wyoming bankruptcy court’s order,” said MERSCORP Holdings Vice President for Corporate Communications Janis Smith. “This holding is consistent with prior rulings and is another example of unsuccessful reliance on the ‘split the note’ theory.”The New York Appellate Court overturned a previous decision by a trial court which had declared a MERS mortgage invalid. In the case of J.P. Morgan Chase Bank v. Kobee, a trial court in New York originally denied Chase’s motion for summary judgment to its foreclosure complaint, ruling that the bank lacked standing to foreclose as the assignee of a mortgage for which MERS was the original mortgagee.Citing an earlier case, the appellate court ruled that the trial court erred in declaring the mortgage invalid and granted the bank’s summary judgment in its foreclosure action.“We are pleased that the Appellate Court re-affirmed the validity of a MERS mortgage under New York law,” Smith said. “The appellate courts in New York routinely recognize MERS’ role as a valid mortgagee as a nominee for the lender, and also recognize that MERS has legal authority to act on behalf of the lender.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News Home / Daily Dose / MERSCORP is Victorious in Appellate Courts Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save MERSCORP Mortgage Electronic Registry System 2016-06-27 Brian Honea June 27, 2016 1,102 Views Previous: Citi Provides Consumers More Relief, Monitor Says Next: Fewer Distressed Homes For Sale in Hardest Hit Areascenter_img MERSCORP is Victorious in Appellate Courts Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Subscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Tagged with: MERSCORP Mortgage Electronic Registry System Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articleslast_img read more

One encouraging sign has been the increase in new home construction to a 10-year high,” Yun said.Almost all experts agree that supply is a headwind that the market has been grappling with this year. “Supply problems are particularly acute for lower-priced homes,” said Tendayi Kapfidze, Chief Economist at LendingTree.According to Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at Realtor.com, “Because high prices and limited inventory continue to be the dominant conditions in housing markets across the country, pending home sales and existing home sales are expected to remain weak, and total existing home sales in 2018 may register a decline from 2017.”In this video, Yun talks about all the other factors that affected home sales and the regions most impacted by them:center_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.

Equifax and FICO Partnership: Industry Impact

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post Tagged with: credit Equifax FICO Home Loans Lending Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Earlier this year, Equifax and FICO announced a partnership, pooling their collective consumer financial data sets to offer the Data Decisions Cloud. In a piece published on PaymentsJournal, Martin Kurpiel, SVP Technology Solutions & IT, Valid, discussed how this partnership will impact lending and the “future of finance.”“While it’s unclear exactly how much combined data the two companies have within their cloud product, it’s safe to say that the market and demand for alternative data sources is unlikely to shrink,” said Kurpiel. “Reports also indicate that traditional credit score competitors TransUnion and Experian have made plays of their own to get into the alternative data game. But what does more data being available to banks actually mean for the consumer, and what should we expect in the future as this trend continues?”According to Kurpiel, the additional access to data this partnership brings to banks will mean more opportunity to customize offerings. Other benefits include faster decision making, as the additionally access to date could cut back on some red tape for larger transactions, such as home and business loans. Kurpiel notes that smaller transactions, from daily credit card transactions up to medium- to large- actions such as auto loans have already seen transaction times decrease in recent years, and big-ticket transactions like home loans now have the opportunity to see some faster response times. For consumers, credit scores may not be so “static” anymore. With more access to information, banks can access credit history in real-time to get a more up to date credit feedback. The downside of the additional access to data is the security risk. Kurpiel states that “it will be interesting to see how the companies respond — while the way credit scores are calculated are relatively well known, adding more data means the reasoning behind decisions might get murky.” Data privacy is a hot topic, and the the focus of discussion at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Tuesday.Sen. Mike Crapo, Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, said that more personal information was available to companies than ever before “as a result of an increasingly digital economy,” as witnesses noted the risks involved.“In particular, data brokers and technology companies, including large social media platforms and search engines, play a central role in gathering vast amounts of personal information, and often without interacting with individuals, specifically in the case of data brokers,” Crapo said.

Coalition Urges Congress to Boost Mortgage-Payment Assistance

first_img Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Coalition Urges Congress to Boost Mortgage-Payment Assistance in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Civil Rights Congress HOUSING 2021-02-09 Christina Hughes Babb Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago A coalition of more than 350 groups — including 64 national housing and civil rights organizations — sent congressional leaders a letter pressing for additional relief of $25 billion for homeowners in the next COVID-19 stimulus package.“Mortgage payments assistance will be critically important to the nearly 3 million borrowers that remain in long-term forbearance plans from their mortgage servicers,” explains the letter, signed by national housing organizations including the American Bankers Association and Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), National Association of Realtors (NAR), as well as the NAACP and National Urban League.The letter calls for aid to homeowners facing hardships stemming from the pandemic who disproportionately represent communities of color, with state housing finance agencies deploying the bulk of the funds through the Homeowners Association Fund.On top of that, the letter calls for at least $100 million for housing counseling and $39.7 million for the Fair Housing Initiatives Program. The coalition says HUD-approved housing counseling agencies and legal assistance collectively help homeowners avoid foreclosure.It writes: “HUD-approved housing counseling agencies play a critical role in ensuring homeowners get the individualized help and relief they need to stay in their homes, including through effectivecommunication with their servicer and addressing credit and financial challenges as a result ofthe pandemic.What’s more, the Homeowner Assistance Fund, modeled after the Obama-era Hardest Hit Fund, recently was reintroduced by Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Jack Reed (D-RI).According to the letter, the fund “would enable state housing finance agencies to help homeowners with COVID-19 hardships, including providing direct assistance with mortgage payments, helping people get into affordable loan modifications, and assisting with utility payments, property tax and insurance payments, homeowner association dues and other support to prevent the loss of home equity, mortgage delinquency, default, foreclosure, or loss of utility services.”Read the “letter to the Hill” in full at NHC.org.
