How Tammy Can Help You:
Tammy Butler, Master CMB, is available to assist you in navigating the murky waters of fair lending, disparate impact and compliance.
Mortgage bankers and brokers are not accustomed to the federal regulatory environment that our bank counterparts have been subject to. With the creation of the CFPB and their intense focus on Fair Lending and Disparate impact, many lenders are scrambling to try to figure out how to re-engineer their business to stay compliant. It seems like each time we read the industry news, another lender is being fined into the millions for fair lending or disparate impact violations. Also, many mortgage bankers and brokers make the mistake of thinking that the CFPB is reviewing only the big lenders. This is not true; several smaller clients have also been examined.
Tammy is making the path to compliance much clearer for lenders by:
- Working on technology flow and real-time solutions.
- Assisting lenders to figure out their new workflow models while at the same time staying compliant.
- Developing training solutions to assist all areas of your production for fair lending and disparate impact compliance.
- Staying in constant contact with her sources in Washington DC to get you the latest information.
There are solutions for every size lender. The key is to be pro-active, put your plan in place, and demonstrate your compliance management systems to the CFPB examiners. Tammy can assist you in building those solutions, step by step. It starts with a complimentary review – you decide where to take it from there!
