It’s Double-Witching time for correspondents. Veteran staffers are overworked and overwhelmed. Sales and closing are the priorities (loss mit and QC, less so.) Next thing you know, there comes the surge of errors, buyback demands and scary trips to the scratch & dent market.
But not for Plaza Home Mortgage® Correspondents – at Plaza, we understand your market and business challenges and apply our Certified Loan Program to every loan we purchase to protect you from direct loss from a repurchase demand that is tied to certain fraud, underwriting errors or manufacturing defects – even if it’s COVID-related – at no additional upfront cost.
Forget the “scratch and dent” markets and apply to “Get Certified” today! There’s no better time than now to get the insurance you need with service you can trust.
Learn more about the value of Plaza’s Certified Loan Program and how it can protect its client-sellers by contacting your Plaza Account Executive or emailing us at email@example.com.
On March 1, 2021, the IRS will be updating their form requirement from 4506-T to a 4506-C when obtaining transcripts through a vendor. However, the IRS has made the new form 4506-C available now. The new form will have an impact on Post Closing Quality Control Reviews, therefore we recommend that clients begin using the 4506-C as soon as possible.
All loans purchased by Plaza on or after February 1, 2021 must have closed using the new 4506-C. Prior to February 1, Plaza will accept both the 4506-T or the 4506-C form.
To avoid delays in loan purchasing, please work with your document vendor and LOS provider to ensure the new form is included in the closing packages.
