Home Equity Quality Control

With the growth of home equity originations over the past few years, you may be expanding your offering of home equity lines and loans across a wider range of borrowers. In today’s ever-changing environment, you need an experienced partner who can help you reduce the heightened risk of process interruptions, compliance exposure and underwriting inconsistencies inherent in this new environment. Working with Stewart Lender Services® can help you address key factors such as:

  • Operational risks related to underwriting and processing the mortgage file and verifying that mortgages are being properly originated and reviewed
  • Regulatory risks resulting from CFPB, OCC/OTS, NCUA and other government agency oversight
  • Heavy up-front expenses, resource and capacity constraints that come with handling the work internally

Our dedicated and expert staff of trained analysts can manage the loan file review process for you. Through close collaboration, we will help you develop and maintain a custom quality control plan that mitigates your risks. We offer either comprehensive loan file review solutions or a customized, focused review of key factors, including:
