Noteworthy Items:  

The item listed below, while showing as “Out of Compliance” (effective date as passed and we are beyond our standard implementation timeframe) on our October report, has been deemed medium risk.  The rational for the risk rating is included and this item continue to be implemented.

  • 5779 FHA ML 2019-14 (Effective 11/30/19) – FHA has made updates to its Loss Mitigation Options for Borrowers in Presidentially-Declared Major Disaster Areas (PDMDA). These changes include updates to Eligibility without Financial Evaluation, Trial Payment Plans, and Disaster Standalone Partial Claims.  There are (3) action items associated with this regulatory change. Loss Mitigation will update Back in the Black (BITB) to support the new evaluation procedures for borrowers impacted by a PDMDA, update internal procedures to align with the updates in the BITB workflow, and update the forbearance letters to provide borrowers modification options when they are at the conclusion of the forbearance period. This is medium risk as the system updates to support the new evaluation procedures were implemented 11/30/19 and we’re working on finalizing the internal procedures and to implement the letter changes in production.
