POWERED BY VENTANEX
A REPAY COMPANY

Receiving payments accurately after a mortgage service transfer should be smooth sailing. But borrowers get busy, forget to open the mail, miss important notices. And for 60 days, servicers are on the hook for getting missent paper and electronic payments rerouted and applied to the right accounts.

CUMBERSOME AND CLUNKY

When a borrower sends a payment in error to the old servicer by mail or bill pay, there’s no automated way to route it quickly and easily to the new servicer. Getting the payment applied correctly involves multiple manual steps—each prone to errors and delays. There’s no reporting, no audit, no tracking, no updates to the servicing platform—and no way to automatically remind the borrower about the servicer change.
