Revolutionizing Mortgage Lending

Dominic Iannitti, president and CEO of DocMagic, talked candidly about what the mortgage industry needs to do to improve the lending process.

With the TRID deadline behind us, the industry is breathing easy again. But should it? Recently ComplianceEase, a provider of automated compliance solutions to the financial services industry, released an analysis of compliance defects for closed loans and estimated that the cost of correcting these errors is increasing the cost of origination, on average, by approximately $28 for every loan. The analysis was based on a cross-section of 700,000 audits that were performed in ComplianceAnalyzer and RESPA Auditor during the first quarter of 2015. It found that 17 percent of the loans failed for Truth in Lending Act (TILA) reasons. Another 6 percent of the loans—or one in 15—failed for being outside of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) tolerances.

So, this industry clearly is struggling with compliance. The answer to ironclad compliance is migrating to a truly data-driven process according to Dominic Iannitti, president and CEO of DocMagic.

Paperless Automation Key to Lender Compliance and Competition

After lenders and their technology providers spent much of 2015 implementing the TILA-RESPA integrated disclosures, forthcoming compliance audits and a government-sponsored enterpriseplan to start collecting data from the new forms will tell if those efforts truly paid off.

Lenders are also looking ahead at other technology initiatives to bolster their competitive advantage at a time when more purchase originations are expected to take a larger share of overall mortgage lending.

"TRID was like the story of the century because it had such an impact on technology, process and regulatory compliance. The story in 2016 will be auditing that compliance," said Tim Anderson, director of eServices at Torrance, Calif.-based document technology provider DocMagic.

The Real Impact of Integrated Disclosures

By Tim Anderson,
Director of eServices,
DocMagic, Inc.

What can the industry expect when the CFPB’s final rule and new forms take effect next year?

When federal regulators change the rules governing the requirements for originating a mortgage loan, it can mean pain for both the industry and the consumers it serves. But this time, the move to an integrated disclosure may surprise you and translate into an unexpected side benefit to all parties—that benefit is the eMortgage.

For almost a decade and a half, proponents of all-electronic lending have urged lenders to take the paper out of the process in favor of fully electronic mortgage origination. Despite its significant benefits, eMortgage adoption gave way to the critical mass of lenders unwilling to abandon their legacy systems and paper-intensive processes.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, lenders’ partners have been implementing systems that allow them to complete more of their loan origination workflow without stopping to paper out. The reality is that a fair amount of lenders have, in fact, been operating fundamentally without paper up until the loan closing, when they print all of the forms for their borrowers’ signatures.

We all know regulation drives change, and the new integrated disclosures lenders will begin using next year provide all the incentive needed to let go of the paper once and for all. Here’s why.
