Current Goals and Objectives

The eMortgage Workgroup develops specifications, document profiles and guidelines for implementing electronic mortgage documents, from application and origination to closing, notarization, recording, investor delivery and servicing. In addition, the workgroup provides business updates from stakeholders including GSEs, MERS, PRIA, lenders, investors and vendors. The group discusses adoption issues, collaborates with regulatory agencies on compliance initiatives and works on various projects. Current projects include an Implementation Guide for SMART Docs, a report on warehouse lender interests and concerns with eNotes, and an eMortgage Glossary.
