Description of Product
This course is only for purchase through a corporate training agreement OR through the purchase of the Level I package of the Residential Servicing Certificate Program.

This is a single-family/residential course series, a component of the Level I Residential Servicing Certificate Program.

The Basics of Mortgage Servicing series provides an overview of loan administration processes and functions within the mortgage banking industry. Designed for anyone interested in learning more about the servicing side of mortgage banking, this series is ideal for loan administration employees seeking a well-rounded understanding of the business. This series is made up of four courses.

The Servicing in the Mortgage Lending Process course examines the role of loan administration in the broader mortgage lending cycle. It describes the various components and players in mortgage lending and explains how servicing interacts with the other mortgage lending functions.

The Loan Administration Concepts course introduces you to the critical concepts of loan administration, describing its goals, functions, and tasks. It also identifies the entities related to loan administration and the various loan programs and financing options available to borrowers. Next, it explains the concepts related to the financial management of loan administration and the trend of treating the loan administration portfolio as a mechanism that produces a cash flow stream. The course concludes with a brief look some of the laws and regulations that govern mortgage servicers.

The Loan File Documents course describes the documents in the loan file that are used to resolve any problems that may arise throughout the life of the loan, such as borrower default. Documents covered in this segment include the security instrument, the deed, the promissory note, various types of insurance policies (hazard, flood, mortgage), and others.
