Stewart Lender Services Launches New Services to Improve Risk Management

Feb 22, 2011

Stewart Lender Services (SLS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Stewart Title Company, has partnered with Inglet Blair LLC to launch Stewart’s Risk Analysis and Data Integrity Services. These services provide clients a thorough analysis of residential mortgage loans and other secured mortgage-related debt to enable better risk management. Stewart’s comprehensive review for residential mortgage loan due diligence will help ensure loans were underwritten correctly and highlight the areas of risk for an investor. “What we are offering is part of the next wave of mortgage lending services,” said Jason Nadeau, president of SLS. “It enables Stewart to continue to provide a full breadth of services for our mortgage lender and servicer customers throughout the lifecycle of a loan. Our partnership with Inglet Blair brings together two strong industry players and leverages both of our strengths to provide the full range of services to our customers.” Using its proprietary technology, Stewart can provide complete risk analysis and accurate data capture. The company’s Web-based due diligence and compliance system offers flexible reporting capabilities for pool-level or loan-level results and can accommodate third-party integration. Stewart’s expert forensic review team can provide a Forensic Audit and Contractual Terms review of under-performing or non-performing mortgage loans to identify and assist our clients in defending against frivolous repurchase claims. Moreover, Stewart can provide its customers with a clear, concise rebuttal and, if necessary, aid in their defense. “Each review is tailored to meet a client’s specific risk criteria,” said Sandy Blair, managing partner of Inglet Blair. “It’s a cost-effective alternative to maintaining in-house quality control staff and can be conducted in accordance with guidelines set forth by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Federal Housing Administration or Veterans’ Affairs.” For more information, visit or
