High concentration of servicing business among existing servicers, coupled with volume increases, puts MSRs at risk without proper oversight
LOS ANGELES, Calif. /Mortgage and Finance News/ — Subsequent QC, LLC (SQC) President Michael Steer today advised lenders to take steps to protect their Mortgage Servicing Rights (MSR) assets ahead of an anticipated increase in total mortgage servicing volume. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, outstanding mortgage debt is expected to reach $10.4 trillion by the end of 2018, compared to $10 trillion in 2017 and $9.7 trillion in 2016.
With the increase in the number of loans to service, and lenders that lack the capabilities to service in-house, the nation’s existing 10 to 15 servicers will experience an additional influx in business, making it even more critical for lenders to shore up their oversight of these entities and the assets with which they’ve been entrusted, Steer says.
“When volume increases, it becomes correspondingly more difficult to ensure quality on a day-to-day basis, which is why lenders need to put additional oversight in place now before volumes rise significantly,” Steer said. “These are potentially 30-year assets, and to ensure lenders derive maximum benefit from owning these assets, it is imperative that they enshrine them with every level of protection possible through operational audits of their subservicer and loan-level servicing quality control reviews.”
As the servicing-focused sister firm to leading mortgage risk management and compliance services firm Mortgage Quality Management and Research, LLC (MQMR), SQC offers extensive experience in servicing/subservicing operational oversight and loan-level servicing QC. Cross-educated on all areas of interest (AOIs), SQC auditors are trained to recognize issues indicative of process failures, coaching opportunities, trending and mitigating corporate expenditures – all of which enable lenders to effectively manage and protect their servicing assets.
“SQC strives to provide a holistic approach to servicing oversight and loan-level QC that bridges the gap between servicing compliance and risk,” Steer said. “To that end, our
auditors are trained to go beyond ‘checking the box’ and investigate the root cause of issues to ensure issues are addressed at ground zero.”
