PDF Brochure

Every time anyone in the bank makes a flood error, there is potential for a $2,000 fine.  And multiple errors in the same loan can result in multiple fines.  As a result, now, more than ever, we need to understand assure that the loan origination and servicing process is free of any deficiencies, including completion of documents, getting insurance when required, and other errors. This seminar will include all changes – including the 2015 changes- to the flood rule. 

This seminar will cover all aspects of the flood process.  The focus will be on both the loan origination process and the servicing process, and the steps that bankers must take to assure appropriate compliance.  Included in the presentation will be examples from the real world, explaining exactly how “not to do it.”
