State and Investor Compliance News

So far this year, we have updated forms in Ohio and added support for a new kind of loan in a number of other states. The changes are outlined below, and more details can be found on our compliance blog by following the links.

Ohio. The Ohio Attorney General has published an updated version of a required disclosure that describes acts and practices in connection with residential mortgages that are unfair, deceptive, or unconscionable. As a result, we modified document Cx11195, which is a duplicate of the Informational Form. More.

Alaska, et al. As a part of our efforts (see here and here) to expand the scope of our support for loans secured by a borrower’s ownership shares and lease in a cooperative unit (“cooperative loans”), we are pleased to announce we will be rolling out support for these types of loans in Alaska, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
