The Compliance Group, Inc.CARLSBAD, Calif. /California Newswire/ — California-based mortgage compliance services provider The Compliance Group, Inc., has relocated from its original San Marcos, Calif.-location into a larger office space, located at 1901 Camino Vida Roble, Ste. 115 in Carlsbad. According to Annemaria Allen, president of The Compliance Group, increased activity in the regulatory sector was a driving factor in the decision to move.

"As the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has started to flex its muscles over the last two years, compliance services like ours have been in high demand," Allen said. "After more than 12 years, it was time for us to expand into a slightly larger space to accommodate the increase we've seen in our business."

Much of the business The Compliance Group has seen over the past two years has been related to audit preparedness, as the CFPB and many other entities (Federal Housing Administration, Fannie Mae, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, etc.) have stepped up their oversight of financial intuitions.

"The CFPB's Compliance Management System requirement seems to be a challenge for some lenders to implement, and we've also seen the FDIC cite similar issues in its audit reports," Allen added. "Lenders are really being held accountable in a way that they haven't previously been, and our job is to make the seemingly insurmountable task of maintaining compliance in the current regulatory environment much more manageable, even for smaller institutions."

In addition, questionable marketing messaging/tactics, errors in Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data, Fair Lending violations and frequent customer service complaints, among other things, are also triggering audits, Allen observed.
