NEW WHITE PAPER: Improving Default Mortgage Servicing Processes: Opportunities for Alignment and Standardization

Improving Default Mortgage Servicing Processes WhitepaperFollowing the foreclosure crisis of 2008, federal foreclosure prevention programs and consumer protection laws were put into place that provided more standardization and alignment of loss mitigation and foreclosure processes across the industry.
