The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will require large national banks that service mortgage loans to provide comprehensive monthly data about their portfolios. The OCC said the reporting requirement will build upon the efforts of the Hope Now alliance, a cooperative initiative among investors, mortgage servicers, and counselors to help distressed homeowners. In a letter to nine large national banks that account for the overwhelming majority of mortgages serviced by national banks, Comptroller John Dugan said the data will help the OCC assess the banks' servicing activities in light of rising loan defaults and foreclosures. The OCC said its data collection includes all mortgage loans, not just subprime loans.
