Part I or two-part Outline.
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is providing guidance to banks on obligations and risks related to foreclosed property. Issued on December 14, 2011, this guidance highlights legal, safety and soundness, and community impact considerations. It primarily focuses on residential foreclosed properties. (See OCC 2011-49)
A bank's obligations with respect to foreclosed residential properties may differ depending upon the bank's role in the foreclosure. For instance, a bank may be (1) an owner of the foreclosed property, or (2) a servicer and/or property manager, or (3) a securitization trustee.
Additionally, there are specific obligations when lenders release a lien securing a defaulted loan rather than foreclose on a residential property.
