A two-hour webinar summarizing bankruptcy laws.

Unfortunately, some borrowers become delinquent on loans. Some of those borrowers may even file for bankruptcy, which affects what we can and can’t do during the collection process. Of course, we have attorneys who assist the institution in those situations, but it is still important for those who work with borrowers on a day-to-day basis to understand concepts and how it may affect us.

During this webinar, we will provide a high-level discsussion of the basics of Federal bankruptcy laws in order to provide a foundation of knowledge – what the purpose of bankruptcy is, what it is, the different types, and how bankruptcy relates to Federal lending compliance laws regarding mortgages.

    • Early intervention, loss mitigation
