Plaza's Certified Loan Program

Plaza's Certified Loan Program was created to protect sellers from losses caused by repurchase demands. It provides optimal protection with a 100% review guarantee. Now, you have the opportunity to quantify repurchase risk, keep your focus on the pipeline, and improve loan manufacturing quality. There is no added cost to use Plaza's Certified Loan Program, and every loan is automatically considered for eligibility.

Certified Loan Program (CLP) Case Study

Plaza is one of the few investors that provides insurance to protect lenders against financial losses caused by repurchase demands. The example below illustrates one such case in which Peoples Mortgage, a CMC Patron, exercised the Certified Loan Program insurance coverage and avoided what would have been a substantial loss. 

  • Repurchase Notification Date: 8/12/16
  • Loan Balance at time of Repurchase Request: $240,000
  • Reason for Repurchase: LP showing invalid/ineligible/incomplete
  • Client able to refinance loan to avoid repurchase? No, borrower did not qualify
