The residential mortgage foreclosure process has seen many important changes in the last few years. A mistake in the process can cause substantial damages to your financial institution that far exceed the loan amount. This webinar will explain the legal and compliance concerns starting with the decision to foreclose on the real estate and ending with holding the foreclosed real estate on the financial institution’s books. It will explore the proper steps required to handle a residential mortgage foreclosure and what can be done when the borrower files bankruptcy.


This informative session is designed for staff involved in the real estate loan and collection process, including loan officers, workout officers, loan operations personnel, collectors, attorneys, compliance officers, and managers.
