WASHINGTON—The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) today issued a Consent Order against Cenlar FSB of Ewing, N.J.
The OCC took this action based on the bank’s failure to establish effective controls and risk management practices related to its mortgage servicing and subservicing activities.
The order requires the bank to take comprehensive corrective actions to address identified deficiencies and implement internal controls and risk management practices that are appropriate to the bank’s risk profile and the size of its mortgage subservicing operations. The order also limits excessive growth and prioritizes remediation by requiring the bank to receive no supervisory objection from the OCC before adding new subservicing clients and prior to declaring or paying dividends to shareholders while the order is effective.
Cenlar FSB is the largest mortgage sub-servicer in the country, performing servicing duties on behalf of financial institution clients throughout the United States, and the second largest mortgage servicer in the United States.
