LANSDALE, PA, May 19, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) – Global DMS, a leading provider of cloud-based appraisal management software, announced that it has launched a new Compliance Guarantee Program for those that utilize its EVO-Res appraisal management platform, which covers all fines in the event that a client is found out of compliance, but is using the software’s Best Practice Configuration.
Those that utilize EVO-Res to manage their valuation operations will be protected by Global DMS’ Compliance Guarantee Program as it pertains to Appraisal Independence Requirements, appraiser licensing, borrow receipt of the appraisal, and report and delivery to both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Global DMS’ new program allows institutions concerned with appraisal compliance to effectively remove appraisal risk from the equation, while ensuring they comply with Dodd-Frank’s Section 1471, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act’s (ECOA) Regulation B, the Truth In Lending Act’s (TILA) Regulation Z, the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), and both the GSEs and FHA’s seller guides.
All EVO-Res users will be eligible for this new program, provided they’re following Global DMS’ Best Practice Configuration within the system, which promotes appraisal compliance through automation – such as automated license validation, vendor assignment, appraisal reviews, UCDP and EAD submissions, and more.
Implementing an automated valuation process through the use of status-driven triggers ensures compliance by eliminating manual touch-points that lead to human error and oversight. With EVO-Res, this automation not only covers the entire process, it’s 100% configurable – allowing lenders and AMCs to customize and run their specific workflows as needed, no development intervention required.
“The appraisal industry is always in flux, and it’s imperative for all participants to quickly adapt to the drastic changes introduced by federal regulation, state legislation, public policy, and lending guidelines,” said Global DMS COO, Jody Collup. “The key to being compliant and efficient is having an all-encompassing platform that supports dynamic change, as well as an intuitive interface that doesn’t require expensive, time-consuming custom development work.”
