08:58 EDTOCNOcwen says will file corrective action plans as needed based on OMSO report
Ocwen Financial has been working closely with the Office of Mortgage Settlement Oversight, or OMSO, on two issues identified in the report covering the first six months of 2014, the National Mortgage Settlement Monitor said in a public filing, according to the company. OMSO's fourth report on mortgage servicers' compliance with the National Mortgage Settlement discloses two items that precluded the Monitor from reporting on Ocwen's progress for the first half of 2014. The first concerns the processes used by the company's NMS Internal Review Group and was flagged by a complaint from an IRG employee. The IRG is responsible for reporting on Ocwen's compliance with the NMS. The second issue concerns the letter dating issue raised by the New York Department of Financial Services in October. To the extent the Monitor determines that Ocwen did not meet the minimum compliance standards mandated by the NMS in any period, Ocwen will file a corrective action plan in accordance with the NMS protocols.
