Lender Services

Deed in Lieu

With the U.S. Treasury's Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program standardizing the short sale and Deed-in-Lieu of foreclosure processes, borrowers whose loan modification or Short Sale efforts have been unsuccessful have a last alternative to foreclosure. For lenders, servicers and investors seeking assistance for processing deed-in-Lieu transactions, we have the knowledge, products and flexibility to help cost-effectively manage your transactions.

Our experienced FDCPA-compliant Borrower Contact Center and fully integrated workflows assist in establishing rapport with the borrower, adding continuity and cohesiveness, thereby streamlining the overall process. No need to repeatedly gather the same borrower information, or go back and forth among vendors. Borrowers can be easily transitioned from the failed loan modification to a deed-in-lieu to expedite a graceful exit and ultimate liquidation of the property. We offer a full suite of integrated services that significantly compress the time from borrower contact to the marketing of the asset.
