Here's a look at some of the general session topics that will be addressed:
In today's market, not only must title agents be aware of older, modified schemes, perpetrators are developing new methods, including credit enhancements, property thefts, and loan modifications in response to tighter lending practices. Beyond being watchful of traditional schemes, title agents also must stay informed about sophisticated cybercrimes that raid computer systems. With mortgage fraud continuing to rise during the first half of 2010, you won't want to miss this session as officials from the federal government's mortgage fraud task force discuss the latest in mortgage fraud and what you can do to help prevent fraud.
There are many important issues on the plate for the 112th Congress. Reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may be priority No. 1. With the GSEs commanding such a large portion of the lending market, any dramatic changes could pose significant consequences to an already fragile market. Come and listen to key political leaders discuss plans to reform Fannie and Freddie and learn how changes may impact your lending clients and order volume.
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
While the title insurance industry was not a specific target in the Dodd-Frank Act, many of the legislative changes affecting mortgage lending and servicing will impact ALTA's members. Staff from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will discuss plans to simplify mortgage disclosures by combining RESPA and TILA. These changes that will likely result in changes to the HUD-1 once again. With July 21, 2011 designated as the date for the transfer of power to the bureau, you will want to hear directly from CFPB staff as they discuss plans to get the bureau up and running.
