Evolution of ALTA’s Best Practices: Tools to Aid Implementation

December 15, 2016

With some lenders not requiring any vendor oversight requirements to others mandating third-party certifications, it is essential title agents have useful tools to evaluate where they stand in regard to compliance. Register for the webinar “Evolution of ALTA’s Best Practices” to learn about recent changes made to the Best Practices, tools that are available to aid implementation including the new Maturity Model and how the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new bulletin addressing scalability will affect lender adoption of vendor management programs.

Closing Instructions: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

October 18, 2016

With lenders responsible for production and delivery of the Closing Disclosure under the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures (TRID) rule, many lenders are modifying their closing instructions and shifting liability onto settlement and closing agents. These new instructions can create a host of problems for closers and your bottom line.

ALTA's next free Title Topics webinar, "Closing Instructions: Make Sure You Read Them," will discuss the importance of reading all closing instructions, share examples of different closing instructions and detail how settlement companies have pushed back on lender requirements.
