DocMagic Reaches 300 Million Mortgage eSignings as More Borrowers Opt for eSigning and More Lenders Require Proof of TRID Compliance

3-million-esign.jpgMilestone results from increased adoption of several DocMagic technologies

TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 24, 2018 — DocMagic, Inc., the premier provider of fully-compliant loan document preparation, regulatory compliance and comprehensive eMortgage services, announced that it has processed more than 300 million mortgage-related electronic signatures.

This milestone achievement is the direct result of increased adoption of several DocMagic technologies that feature its comprehensive eSigning platform, which can be accessed as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) or on-premise enterprise platform. Each of DocMagic’s digital platforms reports a significant increase in volume, which the company attributes to lenders’ growing need to prove a TRID-compliant, 100 percent paperless mortgage process.

What is Driving the Transition

North Carolina is not the first state to begin offering electronic mortgages, but it is the first state in which the government has taken an active role in the development and rollout. The decision by the Secretary of State to begin a pilot project, convene various market participants together for a discussion, and form an advisory committee with the goal of developing best practices and standards now positions North Carolina to help form the national model for such transactions.

The groundwork began many years ago. The legal basis for digital signatures and documents has existed at the federal level, through such laws as the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-Sign Act), and at the state level in North Carolina, through such laws as the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act found in Article 40 of Chapter 66, since at least the year 2000. Similarly, North Carolina has had a structure for electronic recording and electronic notarization in place since 2005. The North Carolina structure includes safeguards such as a requirement that the electronic notary must be physically present with the borrower so as to protect against fraud or impersonation and duress.

Helping Lenders Go Mobile

By Dominic Iannitti
Many paths exist for lenders to adopt mobile mortgage technology.

No one that deals with consumers in any industry can doubt the power of mobile technology. Mobile has been fully embraced by the majority of Americans and the result is quite visible. Just look at computing equipment sales in this country — PC shipments are down, and tablets and smartphone sales are skyrocketing. People want to take their computers with them wherever they go and they expect the companies they do business with to keep pace.

While the mortgage industry has perhaps avoided this shift for a time — probably due to the complexity of the industry itself and its software — the writing’s on the wall. As consumers dive deeper into mobile, lenders will have to find a way to do business with them in new ways. As lenders explore this new requirement, they will do well to consider a few key points, issues that they will face as they begin to interact with borrowers in the mobile environment.



Historical First FHA eClosing Announced by DocMagic

First FHA loan closed electronically, all but the note generated and signed electronically

TORRANCE, Calif.—March 17, 2014—DocMagic, Inc., the leading provider of fully-compliant loan document preparation, compliance, eSign and eDelivery solutions for the mortgage industry, announced today that its eSign compliant loan documents were chosen by Stewart Title® and Mountain America Credit Union to complete the industry’s first ever eClosing of an FHA loan, in conjunction with Stewart’s eClosingRoom®.

“eSign has never just been about the upfront disclosures,” said Tim Anderson, director of eServices for DocMagic. “That’s where we started and we’ve done that for a long time now. Our ability to use this technology to help lenders realize a fully paperless mortgage is the real story here. There really is no excuse now not to provide this service to borrowers, who have been demanding it for some time.”

Why Are We Paying Extra?

By Tim Anderson

New CFPB rules have been a boon to the many compliance providers to the mortgage lending industry. Every time a new rule comes out, lenders need some way of ensuring that their systems are compliant. Of course, no one wants to shut everything down and re-tool their shop every time something changes. And so compliance shops benefit. Is this good for our industry? Here’s my take:

I don’t have a particular problem with this. As many of you know, I’ve worked for technology and compliance service providers to this industry for a long time. As long as they’re adding real value to the lender or servicer, they’re entitled to benefit. But there seems to be a perception in the industry that data compliance can be separated from mortgage documents. Even in an all-electronic world that’s not true.

Should the industry pay more whenever a compliance firm decides to charge extra for running another rule or audit?
