Successor In Interest - State Level Reports

Successor In Interest - State Level Reports 


Please contact Eric Garner if you have any questions.


One of the more challenging elements of the 2017 updates to mortgage servicing regulations are the requirements for handling both potential and confirmed successors in interest. Determining successors in interest can be complex enough when looking at the laws governing successorship in any one particular state. When looking at multiple states, this challenge can become an exponentially complex task for servicers and in-house council.

MBA and the Compliance Essentials program, in collaboration with leading legal experts, have created state-by-state reports to help servicers understand documents that are required to verify a successor in interest's status in each state. These concise and comprehensive reports have been created for each state, plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico, and will be an indispensable tool for your compliance staff. In effort to minimize the costs of compliance, MBA is pleased to offer tiered pricing based on the number of state reports your company needs and no more.
