Home loan servicers are companies that manage the day-to-day administrative tasks of a mortgage, acting as an intermediary between the borrower and the lender or investor who owns the loan. At the Law Office of Christopher Hewitt, we help clients with issues with their loan servicing companies protect their homes. In recent years, many clients have contacted us with questions about a company called the Specialized Loan Servicing LLC, located at 6200 S Quebec St, Greenwood Village, CO, 80111.
Why Loan Servicing
Typically, the lender chooses to use a loan servicing company. When a loan is initially issued, the lender either has an in-house servicing department or contracts with an external loan servicing company to handle the day-to-day loan management. In many cases, lenders may sell the loan to investors in the secondary market but retain the servicing rights or transfer them to another servicing company. Even though the lender that originated the loan may no longer own it, they or another designated company will still manage the loan servicing. Borrowers typically do not have a say in who services their loan and may find that their loan servicing is transferred one or more times during the life of the loan. When a loan servicing transfer occurs, borrowers are notified in advance by the old and new loan servicers, as required by law, to ensure they know where to send their payments.
