Plaza Home Mortgage to Provide Repurchase Protection to Members at no Additional Cost
ST. LOUIS, March 3, 2016 – The Lenders One® Mortgage Cooperative, a national alliance of independent mortgage bankers, correspondent lenders and suppliers of mortgage products and services, announced today that Plaza Home Mortgage, Inc. (“Plaza”) is a new preferred investor to the Cooperative. Lenders One members are now invited to apply to Plaza for approved correspondent status and, upon approval, Plaza will offer them its full suite of products.
As an additional benefit, Plaza will provide repurchase protection to members by utilizing the CastleLine® Certified Loan™ Program on all loans purchased and at no additional cost to the member. The Program provides protection from loan manufacturing defects such as underwriting errors, fraud and misrepresentations, including defects from compliance, miscalculation of income, occupancy, undisclosed debts and appraisal issues.
Plaza has been an industry leader in the mortgage business since 2000, serving its communities through both the wholesale and correspondent channels. This partnership of two industry leaders will bring a wealth of value to both Plaza and the members of Lenders One.
“Plaza is a market leader that continues to demonstrate a strong commitment to delivering quality mortgage loans and to protecting both its investors and correspondent sellers,” said Daniel T. Goldman, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Lenders One.
Michael R. Fontaine, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Plaza, shared this sentiment and said, “We are delighted to be partnering with one of the largest mortgage platforms in the country.
