Regulatory Alphabet for Collections Compliance
Louis Ursini & Amy Hanna Keeney, Adams and Reese, LLP
Do you know the dos and don’ts regarding debt collection? What parts of the regulatory alphabet soup apply? It’s more important than ever to understand the legalities and evolution of debt collection. The CFPB recently released a new debt collections rule, the pandemic has upended debt collection efforts, and state regulators are becoming more active. The FDCPA and Reg F got a refresher, UDAP/UDAAP is an on-going concern, and the TCPA is still before the Supreme Court (at this writing). Join us for a comprehensive overview of the shifting landscape of collection regulations and litigation trends.

Your Borrower Is Threatening Bankruptcy, Now What?
Elizabeth Fast, Spencer Fane LLP
When a borrower threatens to file bankruptcy, your financial institution must act quickly before the bankruptcy is filed to ensure your loan documents are sufficient and your security interest is properly perfected. Once bankruptcy has been filed, it is too late to improve the financial institution’s position. Attend this session to learn the immediate steps your financial institution must take to be prepared for bankruptcy filings. There are also alternatives to filing bankruptcy, which may be better for both the borrower and lender. This webinar also will address these alternatives, including payment deferrals, forbearance agreements, workouts or restructuring loans, deeds in lieu of foreclosure, voluntary surrender of collateral, and short sales.

The Virtual World of Collections
David A. Reed, Reed & Jolly, PLLC
One day your collections team was at the office and it was business as usual. The next day everyone was at home wondering how to access work files. Most financial institutions were thrust into a virtual workflow almost overnight. But now it’s time to go beyond the initial “ad hoc” approach and prepare for a dramatic increase in delinquencies as forbearance agreements and other temporary rescue efforts time out.
Transitioning the traditional collection methods to the virtual workflow is simply not good enough. The risk of not integrating the virtual collections function into the rest of the financial institution could have far-reaching negative impacts for customers and your bottom line. This session, presented by a seasoned compliance attorney who was a former collections manager, will walk you through the best practices of imagining and managing a virtual collections process that effectively serves both borrowers and lenders.

Troubled Debt Restructuring in the COVID Economy
Nick Meyer & Travis Whiting, CLA
One of the biggest concerns for financial institutions is the ever-evolving nature of loan modifications resulting from COVID-19. Early on in the pandemic, a primary concern for financial institutions was the potential for a high volume of loan modifications resulting in troubled debt restructurings (TDRs). As evidenced in the interagency guidance prior to passage of the CARES Act, short-term modifications (i.e., six months or less) would not be recognized as TDRs. Section 4013 of the CARES Act allowed for a temporary suspension of GAAP for TDRs. The Agencies have encouraged financial institutions to work prudently with borrowers and provide loan modifications to mitigate the pandemic’s adverse effects. What will this look like deep into 2021? This webinar will provide updated guidance on loan modifications, troubled debt restructurings, and regulatory changes. Join us to learn how this impacts your institution.

Managing Mortgage Delinquency
David A. Reed, Reed & Jolly, PLLC
Every delinquent loan is important, but real estate loans take top priority because of their size and complexity. Nothing is ever easy with a bad real estate loan. Between mounting regulations and a troubled borrower sits the financial institution – stuck in the middle with its balance sheet increasingly at risk. In addition, lawmakers, regulators, and consumer protection attorneys keep an eager eye on your real estate portfolios, particularly the collections and foreclosure processes.
There is too much at stake to lose rescue opportunities for real estate loans or make a fatal error during foreclosure. This interactive session will walk your team through the hazy labyrinth of laws, rules, regulations, and best practices surrounding the real estate collections process. From understanding the best communications methods and tactics to appreciating the most effective recovery strategy, this session is sure to provide valuable guidance and insight that will save you time, effort, and money! Join us for a tour through the new world order of managing mortgage delinquency.

Chapter 7 & 13 Consumer Bankruptcies: Special Rules, Cramdowns & Risks
Elizabeth Fast, Spencer Fane LLP
The number of consumer bankruptcies continues to increase. The process is complicated, time-consuming, and expensive for lenders. Many lenders waste time and money handling bankruptcies because the bankruptcy rules aren’t clearly understood. This webinar will explain the actions required to protect your financial institution’s interests in each bankruptcy situation. It will cover both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies and explain all the processes, including exempt property, fraudulent transfers, preference payments, cramdowns, reaffirmations, and rights of setoff.
