Mortgage Fraud Review

The mortgage subsidiary of one of the nation’s largest banks requested a forensic review of residential mortgage loans acquired from various mortgage lenders and correspondent banks. CrossCheck’s team of mortgage fraud experts reviewed loans to determine the existence of material misrepresentation, which would result in a request to repurchase the loan. CrossCheck determined on which loans repurchase should be requested and prepared the supporting evidentiary file, resulting in millions of dollars in mortgage putbacks.

Second Lien Portfolio Repurchase Review

A large regional bank, who had purchased a large portfolio of second lien loans on a servicing retained basis, was concerned that the original underwriting was not as represented and was dissatisfied with the servicing. CrossCheck reviewed the loan origination and servicing contracts to understand each party’s rights (e.g. repurchase, termination of servicing) and performed a thorough review of the loan origination and servicing files. We provided our opinions regarding servicing in accordance with the contract and industry-standard practices. We also evaluated underwriting exceptions, compliance issues, and misrepresentation. As a result, the client was able to negotiate a favorable settlement and move the portfolio to another servicer.
