We are less than two weeks away from the mandatory compliance date for TRID 2.0. As of October 1, 2018, the CFPB will expect every lender to be in full compliance with the new amendments.
This means that lenders need to make certain that they are ready to make the transition to the updated rules. With the right preparation, you can be certain that this change will occur in a smooth and orderly fashion.
At Docutech, we have been working on the changes for the last year and can assure our partners that we are ready and assist them with their final TRID 2.0 preparations and testing.
Docutech’s integrations with leading technology providers in the mortgage and consumer lending industry are key to helping us deliver end-to-end solutions that enable lenders to streamline loan origination, reduce costs, and optimize the experience for the borrower.

Executing on a complete digital mortgage strategy has been much like completing a giant puzzle. As puzzle pieces like technology infrastructure, regulatory standards, consumer demand, and the need to cut origination cost have aligned, the digital mortgage picture has become more complete.
Summer typically sees fewer compliance updates, and this summer is no different. That said, we did see some changes in California and from the nation’s largest secondary market investor.
All of these changes were detailed on our compliance blog. Subscribe to learn about all of the industry’s compliance news before anyone else.
The evolution towards true end-to-end digital mortgages becoming a reality is gaining increasing momentum with new recommendations from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Mortgage technology has evolved over the past two decades to include automated underwriting tools, digital document generation, eSignatures, eVaults, and mobile and online loan point-of-sale platforms. The Treasury recommendations address the critical need for more investor acceptance of eNotes for true broad-based use of digital mortgages.
While lenders have embraced much of the innovations paving the way to eMortgages, there have been roadblocks – often in the form of outdated regulations and technologies, as well as lack of support from investors that drive much of the mortgage industry’s secondary market.
In the spirit of providing lenders and borrowers with a more efficient, digital loan origination process, Docutech recently announced an agreement to integrate with mortgage automation and SaaS point-of-sale (POS) platform Floify. The integration of these two technology platforms will streamline the generation, delivery and signature of loan disclosures.
A common pain point for many lenders we speak to is the inability to seamlessly enable electronic delivery and eSignature for every document that needs to be provided to the borrower. Too often, lenders struggle to send additional documents beyond those included in the standard loan doc package, such as appraisal acknowledgments, change of address addendums or explanatory letters, to name a few.
This specific – and common – need led Docutech to innovate document Editor capabilities within Solex eSign.
