HOUSTON (Sept. 19, 2007) – Phoenix Capital, Inc., a premier provider of mortgage loan servicing brokerage and advisory services, is now a single-source provider of fulfillment to buyers and sellers of mortgage loan servicing portfolios, via products and services of Stewart Lender Services, Inc. “Sellers can now rely on one entity for all their portfolio sale requirements,” said Michael Lau, executive vice president of Phoenix Capital, Inc. “This spectrum of services will ensure support from the valuation and marketing of the portfolio to the consultation, negotiation and execution of the Purchase and Sale Agreement.”
Complete fulfillment of the transaction is supported by Stewart with services including the pulling, imaging, labeling, bar coding, packaging and shipment of loan files; reorganization of the files to meet the buyer’s requirements; document inventory and subsequent retrieval of missing documents; assignments and/or MERS® registrations; and curative solutions for deficient documents.
Files are shipped to the buyer, supported by file-recreation insurance to cover any losses that may occur in transit. With these services, buyers can be assured that the loan package will be delivered to them safely with accurate data and complete collateral files. This eliminates the need to expend additional resources to obtain critical documents and/or mine for supplemental data.
“Generally, anything that is included in the transfer instructions as a responsibility for either the buyer or the seller can be accomplished through Stewart’s fulfillment services,” said John Bordon, senior vice president, Stewart Lender Services. “Transactions can be completed in a more-timely manner through this alliance. That equates to lower overall costs and the return of holdback funds in a more expeditious manner.
“Having one source to go to for a complete offering of services allows sellers that may not have extensive mortgage loan servicing sale experience or personnel to execute the transaction an outlet to realize the benefits of a mortgage loan servicing sale,” he added.
