LicenseTrackerSAN MARCOS, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Leading mortgage compliance services provider, The Compliance Group, Inc. (TCG), is offering mortgage servicers its expert compliance and risk services, including regulatory audit preparation, Servicing QC, enterprise risk management (ERM) QC and servicing risk management.

TCG's suite of servicer risk solutions is built upon the firm's deep industry roots and its long-held reputation as a mortgage compliance expert focused on quality control (QC) and risk management methodologies since 2000. TCG's founder and president, Annemaria Allen, a career mortgage QC and compliance expert for more than two decades, has assembled a compliance services leadership team comprising centuries of practical experience.

"According to the servicers we talk with, the most active players on the ground are the GSEs and HUD, which are the Goliaths," Allen said. "There are also indications that CFPB audit inquiries are accelerating."

Servicers' primary concern today needs to be preparing for audits or other action taken by the GSEs, HUD and, more recently, the CFPB. Audit preparation is personnel-intensive work that few servicers are correctly staffed to undertake, and is a process that can be mangled by applying retrofitted outsource technology.

"TCG emphasizes the importance of the human element in dealing with the nuances of evolving mortgage servicer regulations, in part due to their newness," Allen said. "Although many standard GSE and HUD servicing best practices have been in existence for quite a long time, they are being brought to light in a more aggressive manner and with more ominous consequences."

TCG's mortgage servicing compliance and risk methodology is characterized by a "mock audit" exercise that maps and evaluates servicers' processes and protocols with an eye both for failures to comply and failures to follow existing QC policies.

"Many servicers lack resources to monitor internal audit procedures," Allen said. "That's why it is critical for servicers to know who their 'go-to' resource is going to be in the event of an audit, and why prudent servicers are getting the ball rolling before the knock on their door."
