Zoral Mortgage Forbearance and Loss Mitigation Module

“Capturing forbearance data is easy... automating Loss Mitigation processing is not.”

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has issued a tailored set of mortgage payment relief options. Borrowers with federally backed mortgages can be eligible for mortgage forbearance under Section 4022 of the CARES Act. Individuals with single-family mortgages may request forbearance for 180 days due to COVID-19-related difficulties. Mortgage servicers are instructed to offer deferred or reduced mortgage payments, initially for up to 6 months.

The Problem

This will generate a very large number of claims, which in turn will place a huge administrative and processing load on Banks, Servicers, and Mortgage Finance companies. It will also likely cause further increases in loss mitigation volumes during the following months.

Portals can be created to capture claim data, however these do not solve the problem. In order to manage the workload, subsequent processes need to be automated as far as possible, (e.g. income, eligibility calculations and validation.). Without an installed, proven, automation platform, this is not simple to do.

The Solution

To solve these problems, Zoral has released its Mortgage Forbearance Module (ZFM). This is part of Zoral’s Smart Loss Mitigation Solution.

They are built using ZDE, Zoral’s proven, intelligent automation system. ZDE provides a low-code, end to end mortgage platform.
