MERS Expands Website To Disclose Loan Investor Information

RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

July 16, 2010 12:54 PM Eastern Daylight Time 

MERSCORP, Inc. (MERS) announced today that investor information for loans registered on the MERS® System is now available to borrowers at no charge.

Through the MERS® ServicerID website (www.mers-servicerid.org), both servicer and investor information are now displayed. The added investor information is an expansion of the MERS® InvestorID program launched in June 2009, which mails a notice to borrowers when the identity of their loan’s owner or investor changed.

“MERS is an enthusiastic supporter of President Obama’s goal to bring more transparency to the mortgage banking process,” said MERS President & CEO R.K. Arnold. “I am pleased that we now have the capability to show the identity of a loan’s owner or investor to whomever wishes to see that data.”

The expanded MERS InvestorID program is an opt-out system which displays investor information on all MERS-registered loans unless the investor has specifically opted out of disclosure (servicer information will continue to be displayed). If a borrower wishes to find the investor on a loan with an opted-out investor, they can do so by sending a written request to their servicer for the information.

“Now both servicer and investor information are readily available to the public,” said Arnold. “Consumers and lenders want and need greater transparency and that’s what MERS is delivering.”
