CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 19, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Leading mortgage compliance services provider The Compliance Group, Inc. (TCG) offers third party services management, including management of appraisal management companies (AMCs) for mortgage bankers, and the mortgage lending operations of community banks and credit unions.

Under CFPB enforcement, mortgage lenders must be able to demonstrate that their third party service providers, including but not limited to title companies, escrow companies, QC providers, sub-servicers and AMCs are compliant with applicable regulations. Mortgage lenders are developing their 2014 compliance strategies and budgets with an eye for cost effectively managing their responsibility for monitoring third party service provider and vendor compliance.

"Mortgage lenders rely on third-party service providers for mission critical expertise, which is precisely why the CFPB wants to hold lenders responsible for verifying service providers' capabilities," said Annemaria Allen, founder and president of The Compliance Group. "We have been closely monitoring the CFPB's posture toward third-party service providers and are helping lenders comply."

Earlier this month at the Mortgage Bankers Association's Risk Management and Quality Assurance Forum 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona, Deputy Comptroller for Credit and Market Risk Darrin Benhart cited "weak governance" of appraisal and evaluation processes ranging from "concerns about the qualifications of the personnel" to "a lack of audit, quality control, or internal control functions to assure the appropriate performance of the program." Further, he said the OCC "sometimes found little oversight of appraisal management companies" noting that "effective oversight was missing especially when the function was outsourced." (

"Right now, the shortcomings in AMC oversight and the need for better internal appraisal evaluation processes are in focus, so it is prudent for lenders to respond proactively to regulatory concerns," Allen said.
