Flood CMP... those eight letters can cause alarm! Examiners are inspecting flood procedures with a fine-toothed comb and are quick to issue civil money penalties (CMP) for noncompliance. Lenders must know the Flood Act’s numerous technical requirements. This can’t-miss session will address flood rules, FAQs, disclosure requirements, mapping changes, detached structure rules, private flood insurance, and escrow requirements. It will also outline red flags and errors cited during examinations. These real-life examples will illustrate lessons learned from others’ mistakes.
