The bill, which went into law at the start of 2013, prohibits certain mortgage servicing practices—such as dual-tracking—and sets in place requirements for single points of contact and document verification, among other provisions.Department spokesperson Tom Dresslar confirmed the report, saying that Ocwen’s lack of response comes despite repeated requests from the state.”We’re the regulator, and we have a responsibility to consumers to ensure that our licensees are complying with laws,” Dresslar told DS News. “They’re not providing us the information we need to do our job.”Dresslar explained that if Ocwen’s license is suspended, the company would be given a “reasonable transition period” to find alternative servicers for its existing portfolio. It would not be allowed to take on new loans.If Ocwen turned over the information the department is seeking, “We’d have to determine at that point how to proceed,” he added. For the time being, the company has asked for a hearing, which is currently set for July.Losing California would be a big blow to Ocwen, which serviced more than 378,000 home loans in the state valued at $95 billion in unpaid principal balance as of Q3 2014, according to MarketWatch. Shares for the company plummeted in early trading Tuesday, falling off by more than 33 percent before ticking back up slightly.With the latest news, Ocwen is off to a less than promising start to 2015 after concluding what was a rocky 2014. The firm’s most recent round of problems started early last year, when New York financial regulator Benjamin Lawsky announced a probe into the company’s practices in response to its explosive growth and customer complaints.After months of concerns voiced by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the Office of Mortgage Settlement Oversight, and various state agencies, Ocwen finally reached an agreement with Lawsky’s office that saw the departure of founder Bill Erbey and a $150 million monetary settlement.Throughout all the troubles of the last year, Ocwen continually pledged to work with regulators to dispel their concerns.In a statement, Ocwen president and CEO Ron Faris said the company has dedicated “substantial resources” toward satisfying the state’s request and believes it has provided the necessary information. He also pointed to Ocwen’s efforts to help California’s homeowners, including the completion of 13,000 loan modifications and 3,500 short sales in 2014.”We expect that we will receive follow up requests or clarifications and that further document and information exchanges may take place,” Faris said. “We expect our ongoing cooperation will result in a satisfactory outcome for all parties.” January 13, 2015 1,253 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more

Issuer of Ginnie Mae RMBS Settles with SEC

first_imgSubscribe California-based First Mortgage Corporation, a lender that issued Ginnie Mae residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) backed by loans it originated, has agreed to pay $12.7 million to settle fraud charges brought on by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).The SEC announced that the company and six senior executives will pay to settle charges that they “orchestrated a scheme to defraud investors” in the sale of residential mortgage-backed securities guaranteed by Ginnie Mae.From March 2011 to March 2015, First Mortgage and the six senior executives pulled current, performing loans out of Ginnie Mae RMBS by falsely claiming they were delinquent in order to sell them at a profit into newly-issued RMBS, the SEC alleges. In addition, First Mortgage caused its Ginnie Mae RMBS prospectuses to be “false and misleading” by improperly and deceptively using a Ginnie Mae rule that gave issuers the option to repurchase loans that were delinquent by three or more months, the SEC said.The executives charged with fraud in the SEC’s complaint agreed to the following settlements:Chairman and CEO Clement Ziroli Sr. agreed to a $100,000 penalty.Company President Clement Ziroli Jr. agreed to pay 411,421.98 plus $27,203.92 in interest and a $200,000 penalty.CFO Pac W. Dong agreed to pay a $100,000 penalty.SVP Ronald T. Vargas, who headed FMC’s capital markets department, agreed to pay a $60,000 penalty.SVP Scott Lehrer agreed to pay a $50,000 penalty.Managing Director of the servicing department Edward Joseph Sanders agreed to pay disgorgement of $51,576.51 plus $6,811.19 in interest.  Sanders cooperated in the SEC’s investigation.

Has Streamlining Benefited Loan Mods?

first_img Alison Rich has a long-time tenure in the writing and editing realm, touting an impressive body of work that has been featured in local and national consumer and trade publications spanning industries and audiences. She has worked for DS News and MReport magazines—both in print and online—since they launched. Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Back in 2013, Fannie Mae launched a streamlined, no-documentation loan modification program to help more beleaguered borrowers dodge foreclosure and remain in their homes. Contrary to expectation, the innovative program not only has a high usage rate but also increases the overall success of mortgage modifications by 34 percent, according to a new Urban Institute research. “If the streamlined approach had been available over the entire 2012–15 period, it would have prevented 6,100 additional foreclosures each year on Fannie Mae mortgages,” the research said. “This provides compelling evidence that the streamlined approach is beneficial to loss mitigation.”Just how beneficial? When looking at data from 2012 to 2015, the rate at which distressed borrowers gave the go-ahead to participate in a modification—aka, the “take-up” rate—rose from 20.2 percent without streamlining to 29.2 with the program, the report says, (that’s a 9-percentage-point, or 44.6 percent, improvement).Advantages aside, streamlined mods post a higher redefault rate, even after controlling for borrower characteristics. The reason? Applicants who submit documentation might be more motivated to make the modification work, the report explains.The success rate for streamlined modifications totaled 64.1 percent in the first 36 months following modification, compared with a 68.9 percent success rate for standard modifications (a program with the same payment but requiring more documentation), the report indicates.Some 15.9 percent of delinquent borrowers continue to hand in the full documentation, the report found, while 13.3 percent accept the modification offer requiring fewer supporting documents. That said, the study noted a smaller net benefit (24.6 percent) for people who give a nod to a streamlined mod. Once the streamlined option comes into play, the net benefit of the entire modification program is 7.9 percent or an almost 34 percent improvement over the baseline.And that’s proof enough to earn the program an unequivocal thumbs up, the Urban Institute said.“Our research … confirms that the streamlined modification approach adopted in this Flex Mod program is a positive innovation,” the Urban Institute said. “We expect to see its widespread adoption by portfolio lenders and the private-label securities industry as well.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Has Streamlining Benefited Loan Mods?

NAR’s 2019 Remodeling Impact Report: DIY  revealed that millennials are more likely to undertake a ‘do it yourself’ (DIY) remodel than hire a professional. Homeowners, especially cash-strapped millennials are the most likely of any generation to take on a DIY project. The results are based off examining the differences between remodeling when hiring a professional compared to homeowners who pursue “do it yourself” projects. It also makes a clear differentiation of projects that were undertaken to benefit the consumers’ homes and those that benefit consumers’ pets. In the report’s “Joy Score”, homeowners who did projects themselves recorded a score of 9.9 compared to a score of 9.6 for projects completed by professionals. They are also said to have expressed a greater sense of accomplishment with a finished project, wherein 97 percent of respondents indicated a major or minor sense of accomplishment, compared to 93 percent of those who hired a professional. Increasing functionality and/or livability of their homes was cited as the primary reason by homeowners for undertaking a project (35 percent for DIYers and 41 percent for those hiring a professional). Increasing the home’s beauty and aesthetics (19 percent and 18 percent, respectively) and adding durable and long lasting materials and appliances (15 percent and 18 percent), were the other reasons stated by respondents. “One of the pleasures of homeownership is the ability to take on projects to customize a house that truly makes it your own. With plenty of owners taking on renovation projects as New Year’s resolutions, this report is a great place to search for projects others have undertaken successfully,” a John Smaby, a second-generation Realtor from Edina, Minnesota, and broker at Edina Realty. Nearly 73 percent of Generation Y and millennial consumers, over 51 percent of Generation X and 50 percent of younger boomers prefer DIY home projects. Seventy percent of the Silent Generation indicated that they hired a professional to complete their project – the highest of any generation, the report indicated. Interestingly, respondents who undertook pet projects recorded complete satisfaction when they hired a professional, 65 percent compared to 61 percent and recording a Joy Score of 9.3. The DIYer’s reported a Joy Score of 9.4. The report found that 56 percent of consumers are more likely to DIY a project for a pet compared to 47 percent for a general home project.
