*************************************************

On December 20, 2011, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) updated its announcement regarding correcting foreclosure practices. We have previously issued newsletters on this subject and also related matters regarding foreclosure processing.

Earlier in 2011, on April 13, 2011, the OCC, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB), and the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) announced enforcement actions against 14 large residential mortgage servicers and two third-party vendors for unsafe and unsound practices related to residential mortgage servicing and foreclosure processing. The enforcement actions were based on interagency examinations conducted in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Through those enforcement actions (consent orders), federal regulators required servicers to engage independent firms to conduct a multi-faceted review of foreclosure actions in process in 2009 and 2010.

On January 4, 2012, the OCC announced that it was promoting public service advertisements about the Independent Foreclosure Review.
