The process of evaluating, originating and servicing mortgage loans contains numerous requirements that come from several regulations. Those regulations cover various aspects of the transaction - from product planning through servicing. Failure to comply with each and every requirement can result in liability in one form or another.

This program focuses on origination of closed-end loans secured by real property. It does not cover open-end credit or credit that is unsecured or secured by collateral other than real estate or a dwelling.

This four-part program provides a very comprehensive review of the mortgage lending process from initial product development to origination to end of loan life servicing. The program breaks down the lending process into the appropriate phases. It explores which regulations apply to each phase and which actions are required by those regulations. Participants receive a detailed manual that serves as a handbook long after the program is completed.

QUESTION: What are the FTC Endorsement Guides?

ANSWER: The Guides reflect the basic truth-in-advertising principle that endorsements must be honest and not misleading. An endorsement must reflect the honest opinion of the endorser and can't be used to make a claim that the product's marketer couldn't legally make.

In addition, the Guides say, if there's a connection between an endorser and the marketer that consumers would not expect and it would affect how consumers evaluate the endorsement, that connection should be disclosed.
