PHH Mortgage Signs Subservicing Deal With Finance of America Reverse
PHH, a subsidiary of Ocwen Financial, says deal offers opportunity to grow its reverse subservicing portfolio.
PHH Mortgage Corp., a subsidiary of Ocwen Financial Corp. and a non-bank mortgage servicer and originator, this week announced it has entered into a reverse mortgage subservicing agreement with Finance of America Reverse LLC.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
As of the fourth quarter of 2022, PHH’s total reverse servicing portfolio was approximately $31 billion in unpaid principal balance (UPB), which included approximately $23 billion in subservicing UPB, the company said.
The agreement provides a meaningful opportunity to grow PHH’s reverse subservicing portfolio and strengthens its standing as the only organization in the U.S. that can both originate and subservice reverse mortgages, it said.

He added that PHH looks forward “to a long-term relationship with FAR and delivering on the expectations that they have for their servicing partners and customers.”
