MetaSource’s MERS data reconciliation and remediation platform, mintrak2, takes the guesswork out of MERS compliance and expedites the review process.

MERS Loan QA Reviews

Making sure you meet MERS compliance requirements is a top priority for MetaSource, which is why we offer multiple types of QA reviews, including document, MERS timing and servicing system to MERS reviews.

Our document review includes checking a sample of your documents against MERS document and QA requirements. Our MERS Compliance Audit Service ensures that you meet quality control standards by examining your files against MERS QC-specific document and timing requirements. MetaSource also cross-checks the information in the MERS system with the information in your servicing system to ensure it matches. Our MERS loan QA reviews are designed to keep you off MERS findings lists.

MERS Third-Party Annual Review Services

Every MERS member is required to perform an annual review, and those servicing more than 1,000 loans are required to utilize a third-party service. MetaSource’s annual report services are built on a thorough audit of your internal MERS policies and procedures as detailed within the MERS QA Plan, MERS System Procedures Manual and the MERS Annual Report.

MetaSource’s MERS third-party annual review services include:

  • Review and validation of data reconciliation and remediation procedures
  • Production of a MERS QA internal audit report
  • Review of annual documents
  • Execution of MERS QA annual report for submission to MERSCORP Holdings
  • Support with MERS policies and procedures

Our MERS Review Team will help you collect the documents needed for your annual review, review the documents and interview your team. When our review is done, we will complete the reviewer portion of the annual report for you. Then, your Executive Sponsor can complete the report and submit it to MERS by the December 31 deadline.

Our MERS annual report service also includes recommendations on best practices with an internal report and action steps for any compliance gaps.
