To contact Casperson, e-mail: [email protected] Matic Insurance and Mr. Cooper Announce $7M Funding Round Tagged with: HOUSING Matic Insurance Services mortgage Mr. Cooper Matic Insurance Services (Matic), a digital insurance agency whose technology enables borrowers to purchase homeowner’s insurance during themortgage transaction, announced today it has raised $7 million in a Series A funding round, led by Mr. Copper, and leading insurance carriers Nationwide and National General Insurance with support from VC firms Anthemis and ManchesterStory Group.Matic’s technology connects homebuyers with insurance carriers, mortgage lenders and mortgage servicers to make homeowner’s insurance a more integrated part of the home purchase process. The result is a simpler, faster policy selection process that can save borrowers money and reduce loan delays. “Simplifying homeowner’s insurance and bringing policy selection into the home-buying process is a no-brainer — in fact, people often ask us why it’s never been done before,” said Matic Co-founder and CEO Aaron Schiff. “Matic brings to the table an outstanding technical team, a deep understanding of the mortgage business and unprecedented partnerships with insurancecarriers, mortgage lenders and mortgage servicers, some of whom are also our financial supporters. This new funding will support us as we double our team and scale the business to serve our customers in all verticals.”Mr. Cooper’s integration with Matic will make it easier and faster for borrowers to secure a homeowner’s insurance policy when purchasing a home through Mr. Cooper. It will also allow Mr. Cooper to help its mortgage servicing customers lower their monthly payments with a more affordable homeowner’s insurance policy.  The company’s decision to invest in Matic and integrate Matic’s services is part of its new strategy and consumer-centric approach, unveiled in August with the launch of the Mr. Cooper brand name.“Mr. Cooper is pleased to be working with Matic to give our customers access to its innovative digital home insurance platform,” said Tony Ebers, EVP of Originations for Mr. Cooper. “Our investment in Matic will help us provide our customers a modern, easy-to-use shopping experience that could save them money on homeowner’s insurance and make their homeownership journey more rewarding.”center_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Share Save Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago HOUSING Matic Insurance Services mortgage Mr. Cooper 2017-11-13 Nicole Casperson Subscribelast_img read more

White Paper: Self-Governance Critical for PLS Industry

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Coronavirus default Forbearance 2020-05-07 Mike Albanese About Author: Mike Albanese Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Commentary, Daily Dose, Featured, Loss Mitigation, News May 7, 2020 9,921 Views Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport. He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. A new White Paper by the Milken Institute reports that the private-label residential mortgage-backed security (PLS) industry must find a way to “self-govern” by collaborating on a set of uniform guidelines. “Accomplishing this will evidence PLS’s responsible evolution since the Great Recession,” the paper states. “Failure could lead to confusion, disagreements, errors, and litigation that arise from differing contractual interpretations and competing priorities. Failure could also harm consumers and further erode PLS’s standing as a viable component of home financing.” The paper—authored by Eric Kaplan, Michael Stegman, and Theodore Tozer—points out that the recent CARES Act provides mortgage forbearance relief for federally-backed mortgages only. “While various states, including New York, have enacted new measures that extend mandatory forbearance to non-agency loans, they all require shorter periods of forbearance than the CARES Act prescribes,” the analysis said. While the CARES Act does not address non-agency loans, many within the PLS industry have acknowledged the importance of providing forbearance relief to borrowers impacted by COVID-19. “At the same time, these parties expressed concern as to whether tax laws fundamental to PLS allow forbearance relief similar to the type the CARES Act requires,” the paper states.On April 3, 2020, the Structured Finance Association (SFA), requested guidance from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the U.S. Department of the Treasury on the tax treatment of COVID-19-related mortgage loan payment forbearance under PLS trust structures. Several days later on April 13, the IRS issued Revenue Procedure 2020-26, which confirmed that such measures generally would not violate special tax rules applicable to PLS, “effectively clearing the way for servicers to offer forbearance relief options to borrowers affected by COVID-19 whose loans are pooled in PLS transactions.” “Following the resolution of this gating legal question, the first task for PLS parties to consider before providing forbearance relief is to evaluate the governing PLS transaction documents—particularly, the pooling and servicing agreement or equivalent contract—to determine whether the documents allow or condition the contemplated forbearance,” Milken states. Milken’s White Paper says PLS may face scrutiny if the governing deal document or loss mitigation panels do not provide COVID-19-related relief similar to that of the CARES Act. “For deals that allow forbearance, there are critical structural issues that industry stakeholders must resolve to ensure fair, consistent treatment of forbearance relief within PLS trust structures. Failure to achieve consistency could open the PLS deals—and various PLS trust participants—to a wave of litigation that would likely have an outsized adverse reputational impact relative to PLS’s small market share in the post-financial crisis capital markets,” the paper states. Kaplan, Director, Housing Finance Program, Milken Institute, told MReport that while the forbearance periods may end soon, not all borrowers are going to go back to employment or achieve the same income levels prior to the pandemic. He said there could be a large portion of borrowers who will come out of forbearance and into default or even bankruptcy. Kaplan added that any repayment methods need to be sustainable for the borrower. Kaplan said while many government agencies—the Federal Housing Administration, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Veteran Affairs, and the GSEs—have loss mitigation policies, he questions whether they will be flexible enough for borrowers who may need a year, or even two, to repay forbearance amounts. He added communication, options, and clarity on those options will be a large focus moving forward. Earlier confusion caused many borrowers to think a lump-sum payment would be needed coming out of forbearance, but the Federal Housing Finance Agency said borrowers in forbearance with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac-backed mortgages are not required to repay missed payments in one lump sum. While there is more concrete language on the agency side, Kaplan said it is “murky” on the non-agency side and “starting to come under focus.” “Seems odd to me that homeowners in forbearance would be subject to foreclosure. It doesn’t make sense to me,” he said.  Home / Commentary / White Paper: Self-Governance Critical for PLS Industrycenter_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: Coronavirus default Forbearance The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Previous: House Committee Proposes Debt Collection Prevention Next: Preparing for Another Economic Downturn White Paper: Self-Governance Critical for PLS Industry Subscribelast_img read more
