Lenders Compliance Group Inc. (LCG) has announced the formation and launch of Brokers Compliance Group (BCG), a full-service, mortgage risk management firm specializing in outsourced mortgage compliance and offering a full suite of services to residential mortgage brokers.

BCG will operate as a division of LCG. Mortgage Brokers may apply to become members of Brokers Compliance Group by visiting the BCG Web site at BrokersComplianceGroup.com.

That era has now ended with the advent of Brokers Compliance Group," said Jonathan Foxx, president and managing director of Lenders Compliance Group. "For the first time, mortgage brokers have cost-effective access to subject matter experts, compliance attorneys, professional consultants, and a wide array of supportive compliance services.” According to reports to the media, BCG’s monthly fee is said to be very low and is the same fee, whether the mortgage broker is a small or large entity. The member can pay online and continue the service as long as needed. There is no penalty for withdrawing from membership. Certain add-on services, such as quality control (QC), are deeply discounted. Eligibility is based on an entity's active licensing status through the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry (NMLS). "Mortgage brokers have largely been ignored by law firms and compliance consultants because most brokers are just two to six people and often do not have the financial means to retain competent guidance," said Foxx. "Our view is that establishing Brokers Compliance Group and making it affordable will level the playing field for brokers and also make them more independent and stronger, especially in dealing with their day to day compliance needs. Just like years ago when we answered the need for lenders to retain cost-effective mortgage risk management, we are now answering the same need on the part of mortgage brokers. Already, our wholesale lender clients are sending their mortgage brokers to Brokers Compliance Group to receive the kind of care and attention that they have been receiving from us all along.”
