RADAR Update Helps Companies Evaluate Compliance with New Mortgage Rules

Promontory Financial Group has completed a major update to the regulatory compliance monitoring and testing suite of its RADAR platform. The update reflects significant changes to the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act and the Truth in Lending Act that went into effect in January.

The changes are due to rules issued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on mortgage servicing, loan origination, and disclosure. The RADAR tool allows financial institutions to evaluate their policies, procedures, and individual transactions for compliance with the most recent regulatory requirements.

“Promontory has updated its RADAR regulatory compliance suite to keep pace with more than 1,100 pages of new rules issued by the CFPB,” said Michael Dawson, managing director at Promontory Financial Group. “We continue to monitor additional regulations and will update RADAR as necessary, so that compliance and risk professionals can continue to rely on it.”

The RESPA changes address servicers’ obligations to furnish information requested by borrowers, correct errors, and provide protections related to force-placed insurance. The CFPB’s rule requires servicers to give delinquent borrowers information about mortgage loss-mitigation options, provide delinquent borrowers with a single point of contact, and evaluate borrowers’ applications for loss mitigation.

The TILA update includes the final qualified mortgage requirements, and addresses initial rate-adjustment notices for adjustable-rate mortgages, periodic statements for residential mortgage loans, prompt crediting of mortgage payments, and responses to requests for payoff amounts.

RADAR provides an integrated Web-based platform to identify and assess compliance risks introduced by the new requirements, across multiple business lines and geographies. The tool also streamlines reporting and tracks program enhancements made in response to regulatory findings.

“Monitoring the new mortgage standards will continue to be a priority for the CFPB,” said Linda Gallagher, managing director at Promontory and head of its consumer-protection practice. “Given the tight regulatory scrutiny they face, firms must have absolute confidence that they can quickly identify critical gaps in their servicing operations.”

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
