DENVER, Colo. /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: Mortgage fulfillment outsource services expert Titan Lenders Corp. today announced it will exit its retail general fulfillment service offering, which includes contract underwriting, closing, funding and post-closing for retail mortgage lenders, effective Jan. 31, 2015.
“General fulfillment for retail lenders has always been a high-touch, low-margin business. However, after careful consideration of all our business units, we have decided to shutter the division. We can no longer operate in retail to our high standards due to the increasing cost to originate and the unforgiving compliance environment,” Titan CEO Mary Kladde explained. “In 2015, this will become even more challenging with the advent of the integrated disclosure rule, which would require Titan to take on additional risk in closing loans.”
“As always, Titan will be staying fully abreast of the compliance requirements associated with the integrated disclosures. Our efforts in this area will focus on document auditing to ensure compliance with these new regulations,” Kladde added.
Moving forward, Titan will redirect its efforts to its other services geared towards investors and servicers, including MERS audits, data reconciliation, document custody and whole loan purchase review, as well as its jumbo correspondent investment subsidiary Titan Capital Solutions.
“While it has been our pleasure to meet our retail clients’ general fulfillment needs for the last seven years, Titan views this change as a positive,” said Titan EVP Ruth Lee. “The net result of exiting retail general fulfillment will be an improvement in service to all of Titan’s investor clients. This will allow Titan to grow past its legacy channel and continue to adapt to the market and address investors’ operational needs.”
