DMCC has developed a housing counseling program specifically for mortgage lenders named the Client Preservation and Recovery Program (“CPR Program”). This program is designed to accept referrals of consumers who do not qualify for a mortgage loan from a lender, provide the counseling and assistance to the consumers needed to qualify them for a mortgage loan, and then refer them back to the same lender to obtain a loan when they meet the lender’s qualifications. Services will be provided to consumers online, over the telephone or face-to-face, as appropriate.
Key components of the CPR Program for the consumers are as follows:
- Written action plan with recommended steps to become mortgage ready.
- Ongoing assistance to improve credit worthiness.
- Homebuyer education qualifying client for financial assistance, if applicable.
- Assistance with obtaining affordable repayment plans or other relief for federal student loans.
- Waived setup fees for debt management plans (Only if home purchase in 12 or more months).
Benefits to the mortgage lenders include the following:
- Promote positive relationship with client by referring them to a nonprofit organization for help.
- Maintain contact with client and their progress toward becoming qualified for a mortgage.
- Receive back a mortgage ready client with an improved chance of lending.
Programs may be customized to fit the needs of the lender, including referral methods, cost sharing and reporting requirements.
