ICB Credit: 2.5 CRCM

There have been several new requirements for escrow accounts, beginning with the Escrow Closing Notice, followed by required escrow for flood insurance premiums (with certain statutory exceptions) and then the notice informing outstanding borrowers of the option to escrow their flood insurance premiums and fees. Compliance with the various rules affecting real estate loan escrow accounts can be a daunting task. In this two-hour presentation, those who work with or audit escrow accounts will get practical information and real-world examples to help establish and maintain escrow accounts in a compliant manner.

This program will discuss:

  • initial escrow disclosures
  • annual disclosures
  • short-year statements
  • pay-off statements
  • refunds upon payoff
  • netting out escrow balances against amounts owed
  • rolling escrow forward from old loan to new loan
  • escrow cancellation notice requirements
  • recent flood escrow requirements

Loan officers and administrative personnel will gain practical knowledge that will save them both time and money. The information presented at this webinar is not typically discussed at compliance seminars or in compliance manuals.

Who Should Attend: This webinar is designed for compliance officers, auditors, loan personnel that prepare settlement documents, for those that answer technical questions at loan closings and for loan operations personnel.
