Mortgage servicing

Mortgage servicing Definition

The activity of keeping a mortgage loan current, including collecting monthly mortgage payments, forwarding principal and interest payments to the current mortgage holder (if the loan has been sold), maintaining escrow accounts, paying taxes and insurance premiums, and taking steps to collect overdue payments. Mortgage servicing may be performed by the original lender, or the lender may sell the right to service a mortgage to another company, which performs the service for a fee.


Additional meaning of Mortgage servicing:

Some companies, including some savings associations, specialize in servicing mortgages, both their own and those made by other lenders. The original lender may sell the mortgage servicing rights to one company and sell the mortgage itself to another company. See mortgage servicing rights. See recourse servicing.
