Fraud & Compliance Solutions: LoanShield®

Comprehensive Mortgage Fraud Detection & LQI Compliance

LoanShield - Mortgage Fraud Protection ReportWith mortgage fraud continuing to grow and forced buybacks trending, lenders nationwide are choosing LoanShield to protect their business from fraudulent loans.

LoanShield investigates thousands of data points on all mortgage loan participants, not just the borrower; and analyzes each loan against MERS® active tracking data covering millions of mortgage loans from origination through the life of the loan for patterns of fraud.

Ahead of the curve.
Long before Fannie Mae's Loan Quality Initiative (LQI) went into effect, LoanShield Credit Review was ready. From the first day that compliance was required, Avantus customers using LoanShield's Credit Review option could check undisclosed liabilities before closing with a soft inquiry credit pull; avoiding a negative impact on the borrower's credit score and keeping the lender fully compliant.

Credit Review is just one of LoanShield's tools designed specifically to detect mortgage fraud and keep our customers in compliance. Learn More >>
