What does Ocwen service / subservice?
See attached spreadsheet.
(1) Performing loans: include those loans that are current (less than 90 days past due) and those loans for which borrowers are making scheduled payments under loan modification, forbearance or bankruptcy plans.
(3 ) NRZ: Loans serviced by Ocwen for which the Rights to MSRs have been sold to NRZ. Under the agreements associated with the NRZ/HLSS Transactions, Ocwen remits servicing fees collected on the underlying MSRs, except for the ancillary fees (other than float earnings).
Ocwen provides the best data transparency among all servicers through their REALPortal system. The data and system may not be perfect, but it is far superior to anything provided by any other servicer. When the loan transfers to SPS or SLS, data transparency disappears. Investors should demand access to an online data system before moving any more servicing over. IMHO
The significance of April 7, 2017
Excerpts from Ocwen Financial Corp: Form 10-K filed 02/23/17 for the Period Ending 12/31/16
“As described below, the Amendment also limits NRZ’s ability to transfer the servicing of any or all of the servicing agreements underlying the Rights to MSRs until April 6, 2017 even if further OLS servicer rating downgrades were to occur.”
“Also beginning April 7, 2017, NRZ will have a general right to direct us to transfer servicing of the servicing agreements underlying the Rights to MSRs to a third party that can obtain all required third-party consents and licenses, provided that the transfer is subject to our continued right to be paid the servicing fees and other amounts payable under our agreements with NRZ.”
“Pursuant to our agreements with NRZ, if a termination event occurs with respect to a servicing agreement, NRZ has the right to direct the transfer of servicing with respect to an affected servicing agreement to a replacement servicer that obtains all required third-party consents and licenses. Following any such transfer, we would no longer be entitled to receive future servicing fee revenue with respect to the transferred servicing agreement. Under the Amendment, NRZ agreed to a standstill through April 6, 2017, to not take action with respect to any termination event that is related to any servicer rating downgrade in any such affected servicing agreement except under certain limited circumstances”
“Beginning April 7, 2017, if a termination event related to a servicer rating downgrade is existing under the Master Servicing Rights Purchase Agreement and Sale Supplements we have with NRZ, NRZ will have the right to direct the transfer of servicing with respect to an affected servicing agreement to a replacement servicer that obtains all required third-party consents and licenses. Following any such transfer, we would no longer be entitled to receive future servicing fee revenue with respect to the transferred servicing agreement.”
