First Lenders Data, Inc. (FirstClose) is pleased to announce that the company has integrated its patent pending FirstClose Report™ into MeridianLink’s LoansPQ™ Consumer Lending Loan Origination System for second mortgages, home equity loans, and HELOCs. The integration enables LoansPQ users to order instantaneous bundled reports that deliver credit, flood, valuation, title, and tax status with $500,000 of A+ XIII rated lien protection insurance on every loan…all delivered within 30 seconds…within one report… all within LoansPQ.

A user not only orders the report from within LoansPQ, but the completed report is delivered back to the user in LoansPQ so the user never needs to leave the system. The integration eliminates duplicate data entry on the front- and back-ends, while significantly reducing the chance for human error by auto-populating data.

Customized to the lender’s specific needs, The FirstClose Report™ provides lenders with an instantaneous and warranted owners and encumbrance property report, a life of loan flood certification from ServiceLink or other large national flood providers, credit data and FICO scores, the current market value of the property, instant interior and exterior photos of the property, a copy of the deed or mortgage, liens, judgments, transaction history, tax status, tax assessed values, fraud alerts, OFAC terrorist alerts, cur-rent mortgages and current balances, recordable legal descriptions, vesting information, and more. With options to add property condition reports, desktop valuations, 2055 drive-by appraisals, 1004 full appraisals, and full ALTA Title insurance for larger loan amounts and lower FICO scores, The FirstClose Report™ is designed to satisfy all risk and compliance requirements placed on lenders.

Lenders utilizing The FirstClose Report™ are able to reduce closing times from 30+ days to less than 5-10 days, while reducing costs by as much as 75% and decreasing risk with $500,000 of E&O insurance per loan. The solution enables lenders to offer their consumers a better “application to closing” experience. Such drastic reductions in time, money, and risk enhance any lender’s ability to satisfy their customers and compete in an arena filled with additional compliance requirements and red tape imposed upon lenders.

“We are excited to have integrated our FirstClose Report™ with MeridianLink’s LoansPQ. It’s exciting to collaborate with such an innovative partner who recognizes the incredible benefit of providing every-thing lenders need within 30 seconds and at a fraction of what they pay today. Our primary goal in help-ing lenders is to reduce their closing times, increase their efficiencies, and drastically reduce their cost and risk. The integration with LoansPQ helps us do it all,” said Tedd R. Smith, CEO of First Lenders Data, Inc. (FirstClose).
