After sponsoring the VLTA, DCLTA, and several agency seminars over the last month, the message being sent to Title Agents and Settlement Services Companies is to “Just Get Started” on the path towards compliance. ALTA released an updated version of the Best Practices framework in July of 2013 and over 90 days ago Wells Fargo announced that they were endorsing ALTA’s Best Practices, this is not going away. It is expected that well before the August 1, 2015 deadline lenders will be reaching out to agents asking where they are in the process of becoming compliant, what will your answer be? SME has simplified the approach to Best Practice 3, which is centered around securing Non Public Personal Information (NPI), making it more cost-effective and manageable for agents. Call SME to “Just Get Started’ on the path towards compliance!
