Escrow accounts are often called the stepchildren of the mortgage business. However, millions of borrowers rely on these accounts and escrow activities to administer taxes, hazard insurance and other vital services. As a result, the federal regulators have implemented complex escrow accounting rules and disclosure requirements over the years to protect consumers and safeguard these accounts. Because consumers are directly affected, compliance with these escrow requirements, such as the initial escrow account analysis, is particularly important.

RESPA, TILA and the interagency flood regulations all have significant impact on escrow rules. This webinar seeks to provide guidance and best practices on how to comply with these rules. In particular, we will discuss common problem areas where regulatory violations have occurred.

Please join our expert, Coppelia Padgett, as she discusses practical steps to help you review and improve your institution’s escrow accounting process to ensure compliance and eliminate potential risks and problems.
