Flagstar Bank Signs Long-Term Renewal for MSP; Adds Proof of Claims to Support Its Default Operations
  • A Black Knight client for eight years, Flagstar Bank, a $20 billion bank and the 5th largest subservicer in the nation, servicing or subservicing almost 1 million loans, renewed its contract for the MSP loan servicing system.
  • MSP provides the functionality, scalability and ongoing compliance updates to support Flagstar’s  servicing and home equity business.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Oct. 28, 2019 – Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE:BKI) announced today that Flagstar Bank, the fifth largest subservicer in the U.S., has signed a contract extension to continue using MSP, Black Knight’s industry-leading servicing system.

“Renewing our servicing system agreement with an industry leader like Black Knight was important to the future growth of our servicing and subservicing segment,” said Flagstar Bank Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Lee Smith. “This is a key line of business for us, and the MSP system is critical to its success. We also leverage the system to support our growing consumer loan portfolio and have been extremely satisfied with its reliability and performance.”

Black Knight’s MSP servicing system offers robust and scalable end-to-end functionality to help mortgage servicers manage all aspects of their servicing operations – including payment processing, escrow administration, customer service and default management. The system’s proven technology can accommodate any size portfolio from 7,000 to more than 9 million loans and supports both first mortgages and home equity loans. MSP helps servicers such as Flagstar increase efficiency, reduce operating costs and improve risk mitigation for the more than 35 million active loans serviced on the system.
