Collateral & Regulatory Compliance
In the highly regulated world of real estate lending, knowing the status of property taxes on collateral is not just a good practice anymore, it should be part of any bank’s risk management policy.

Loan review should be synonymous with property tax review and real estate loans that hit the past due report should be on the tax monitoring report also.
