Each loan servicing associate must understand our servicing practices, and our associates are trained to strictly follow all laws and regulations governing fair debt collection practices and procedures. They also are extensively trained to assist you if you are faced with problems managing your mortgage debt. All new associates are also given additional one-on-one coaching and cross-training opportunities continually throughout their careers covering other servicing and compliance issues. Courses and learning materials are regularly updated to reflect changes in regulatory and compliance issues, as well as changes in our policies and procedures.

Saving each month for property taxes and homeowners' insurance requires ongoing financial discipline. Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC helps customers achieve that objective by providing an escrow account for real estate taxes and homeowners' insurance when we retain servicing. This is a free service and there is no charge to set up or cancel this service. Please call our customer service number, 1-800-561-4567, to learn more about how to set up an escrow account for your real estate tax and insurance payments.
We encourage our customers to maintain the insurance that their loan requires, and we offer an insurance escrow account with no set-up or maintenance charge. If insurance should lapse, we inform you promptly with two written notices. In most cases, 60 days elapse before we obtain substitute insurance on your behalf. We promptly credit back any unearned premium once you again secure coverage. Our goal is to make certain that your property is properly insured.
Credit counseling offers valuable strategies and options to help you in times of financial difficulty. Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC provides you with information on how to contact HUD-approved credit counselors, and we have several partnerships with credit counseling agencies across the country that can provide you with additional help.
