OIG: Bank of America Reverse Mortgage Servicing Operation Out of Compliance

image The Office of the Inspector General for the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) reviewed Bank of America’s home equity conversion mortgage (HECM) servicing division in Seattle, Washington and found that the servicer did not comply with two HUD requirements in its administration of HECM loans.

According to the report, Bank of America did not maintain annual certifications of residency and did not notify HUD in a timely manner of the due and payable status of the mortgages of deceased borrowers.

The OIG says that both weaknesses could result in the properties remaining vacant longer, increased property deterioration, the need for additional maintenance, and potential decline in property value.

Bank of America respectfully disagrees with several of the OIG’s findings and provides responses in the report which you can read at the link below.
