Top 15 Mortgage QC Findings for 2017

Thursday, February 01, 2018

With 2017 behind us, here is a look back at the top 15 mortgage quality control issues based on tens of thousands of post-close QC audits that we performed over the past year.

In their second full year of adjusting to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) enhanced disclosure requirements, lenders managed a better track record of compliance. Only six of the top 15 findings were related to the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures (TRID) rule, down from 12 of 15 in 2016, the first full year of the rule's implementation.

Even so, the results suggest that lenders are still in the learning curve as TRID defects accounted for the top six findings on the list.

TRID Rule Triggered Most 2016 Mortgage QC Headaches

TRID accounted for 12 of the top 15 findings of quality control (QC) issues in 2016, according to a review by MetaSource of thousands of post-close QC audits conducted by the Utah-based third party mortgage compliance service provider.

Top 10 Mortgage QC TRID Findings for 2016

Mortgage Audit Top 20 Defects and Findings in 2015

Now that TRID has been in effect since October 3, 2015 (with the grace period for enforcement having ended in March 2016), we now have over six months of data on findings based on the pre-fund and post-close quality control (QC) audits that we perform.

Overall Findings

Because of the new formatting required by TRID, the industry is having a hard time with capturing and displaying information, such as getting documentation in the file, following up with the title, having the loan origination system (LOS) accurately track dates and timing requirements, making sure information is complete on documents, etc. A lot of our clients don't even know they have problems – they don't review documents because they rely on their LOS and thinking it will catch everything – until they are pointed out by their investors and/or QC vendor after closing. There have also been a lot of hiccups with LOS updates since TRID. LOS vendors are trying to fix things that broke originally and in the process broken new things that previously worked – creating a whole new set of issues for mortgage lenders. Tip: don't rely entirely on your LOS to capture information as it does not automatically result in your being 100% compliant.

While the grace period for enforcement may extend into the new year—many expect March 2016, which is six months following the October 2015 deadline—mortgage servicers have been trying to address TRID since it was first announced a year ago.

New TILA-RESPA integrated disclosure rules (TRID) are tricky to condense because the rule runs almost 2,000 pages. However, that is why you turn to MCA. In this blog post, we will explain what TRID replaces in a loan file and what you should do about it.

Loan Types Affected

TRID is pursuant to the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act passed in 2010, which is now administered by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). TRID applies to most "closed-end" loans made on or after August 1, 2015 that are secured by real property. These are loan types that are exempt from TRID:
