Data Facts Inc Offers One Stop Solution for Upcoming CFPB Regulations


Memphis, TN (PRWEB) December 20, 2013

Data Facts Inc - a nationwide provider of mortgage lending and background screening solutions - has expanded its offerings to enable lenders to meet the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Ability-To-Repay Rule and Qualified Mortgage Standards that go into effect on January 10th, 2014.

Data Facts, Inc provides trusted information; enabling lenders close more, close faster, and close easier. Their One-Stop Solutions offer comprehensive solutions to the underwriting requirements needed to meet the Ability To Repay Rule and Qualified Mortgage Standards.

These new rules state creditors must verify that borrowers have the ability to repay their mortgage, and use reliable third party records to verify the information used to evaluate the factors.

They are:

  • Comprehensive Income Verifications
  • Employment Status
  • Detailed current debt obligations
  • Undisclosed Debt Verification
  • Complete Credit History via Tri-Merge Credit Reports
  • Monthly debt-to-income ratio and/or residual income

Third party records are defined as:

  • A document or other record prepared or reviewed by a person other than the consumer, the creditor, any mortgage broker, as defined in § 1026.36(a)(2), or any agent of the creditor or mortgage broker;
  • A copy of a tax return filed with the Internal Revenue Service or a state taxing authority;
  • A record the creditor maintains for an account of the consumer held by the creditor; or
  • If the consumer is an employee of the creditor or the mortgage broker, a document or other record regarding the consumer’s employment status or income.

Julie Wink, EVP of Data Facts, Inc has already witnessed the positive impact these solutions have brought to their clients. “One of our large regional lending clients was relieved when the implementation of our Undisclosed Debt Verification solution uncovered a recent purchase by a customer on a $39,000 vehicle. 'Thank you....Thank you... Thank you... ' is what they shouted in the phone.”
