It’s pretty hard to forget that most (if not all) of our title/settlement orders will eventually be going to the same place: the secondary market. In addition to complying with federal regulations, state laws and municipal ordinances, chances are good that you’ll be asked to go above and beyond the letter of the law to meet your particular lender’s requirements. And chances are excellent that those requirements are shaped, in large part, by the requirements of the GSEs for notes they’re willing to accept. Long story short—if your settlement work doesn’t meet GSE and investor “guidance,” there’s a good chance your lender won’t be sending you more orders down the road.
With that in mind, remember that release tracking is not a “nice to have” any more. Fannie Mae has made it clear that notes it will accept must have first lien position and enforceability. That means that any releases on the property must be recorded. Not recorded? No sale—not to a GSE, anyway.
Fortunately, ReQuire has you covered. We’ve been providing the industry’s leading release tracking services for a long time now. So make it easy on your business. Let us handle your tracking and curative services, so you can focus on the things you do best—like growing the business!
