The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has announced that it is rescinding seven policy statements that were issued last year to assist financial institutions during the height of the pandemic. Issued between March 26 and June 3, 2020, the policy statements provided some flexibility in complying with certain regulatory filings and consumer finance laws.
The first step of a closing is for a massive amount of information—about the borrower, the property and the type of loan—to be entered into the lender’s loan origination system (LOS). Data validation is the process by which that information is audited and verified.
The effective date requiring the new Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA) is fast approaching—starting March 1, the updated form will be required in residential mortgage loan packages that lenders intend to sell to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
The mortgage industry is undergoing unprecedented change, and lenders are weighing the move to eClosings—because in the current environment, it’s no longer a question of if, but when. Gavin Ales, DocMagic’s Chief Compliance Officer, shares his insights about the compliance issues these lenders are facing.

Starting March 1, 2021, all lenders who intend to sell closed residential mortgage loans to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac will be required to use the new Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA), the standard form that borrowers use to apply for a mortgage loan.
On Aug. 26, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced an extension of its policies providing for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the GSEs) to continue to purchase loans that entered a COVID-related forbearance prior to purchase. The GSEs’ policies were set to expire Aug. 31, but the announcement extends the policies to Sept. 30.
It may seem like the need for print fulfillment services is counterintuitive to digitizing the mortgage process, but the two things aren’t mutually exclusive.
