SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 16, 2017 — Mortgage document preparation vendor International Document Services, Inc. (IDS), announced it has updated its flagship mortgage doc prep platform idsDoc to include new borrower data collection fields that support compliance with the 2018 changes to Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) reporting.
“Although lenders are not required to collect expanded HMDA data until 2018, they can begin gathering this information in 2017,” said Mark Mackey, vice president of IDS. “As such, IDS chose to update idsDoc to include the new data fields and support early collection of revised HMDA data a full year before it was required.”
“This gives our clients the opportunity to familiarize themselves with how these changes may affect the loan application process and adjust accordingly to be ready for the January 2018 implementation date,” Mackey said.
To further aid clients’ efforts in complying with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) changes to HMDA, IDS has also updated its system to include the most recent reference model from the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO). Known as MISMO Version 3.4, this set of standards was designed to support the changes to HMDA, along with the forthcoming Uniform Loan Application Dataset (ULAD) from the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) and the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures (TRID) regulations. IDS currently supports MISMO v 3.3.0, 3.3.1 and 3.4 and will support Version 3.5, which is in development.
“IDS has fully supported the GSEs’ and MISMO’s common goal of enhancing data quality and bringing standardization to the mortgage industry from day one,” Mackey said. “The benefits of operating from a shared data standard cannot be overstated, and we have made a considerable investment to ensure our clients have the ability to deliver loan data in accordance with GSE requirements using the latest MISMO standards.”
