Teranet and Nationwide Appraisal Services announce partnership creating efficiencies in the appraisal and mortgage approval process

TORONTO, Nov. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Leading electronic land registration and online property search firm Teranet, and appraisal management company NAS (Nationwide Appraisal Services), today announced Canada's first partnership between a collateral risk management division  and an appraisal management company. The aim of this partnership is to save time, enhance due diligence and mitigate fraud for Canada's mortgage lenders, insurers, brokers and other real estate professionals.

"Our partnership will provide a much needed dimension to our current scope of valuation services," noted Craig Rowsell, Executive Vice President with NAS. "Importantly, we will deliver a fully integrated service that utilizes key data to enhance the valuation decision and delivery process allowing clients to better mitigate risk in a cost effective manner."

The partnership delivers a comprehensive, reliable and cost effective valuation process that not only helps financial institutions mitigate risk through a more efficient underwriting process, but can also support adherence to OSFI guidelines and enhanced risk management.   Specific client solutions will include:

  • Decision analytics to support collateral risk management and facilitate the mortgage process
  • Collateral and fraud related data to support client's collateral decision criteria
  • Risk management policy; and pre and post adjudication valuation tools.

"Heightened scrutiny by regulators, exacerbated by changes in the Canadian mortgage lending arena, requires an end-to-end solution," stated Eduardo Alzamora, Director, Financial Services, Teranet.  "Our partnership will deliver integrated options as well as new products to meet changing demands."

Through this partnership, Teranet and NAS will work together to develop new and enhance existing products and services that will now include the following:

Proprietary Property Report:
This report will provide detailed residential property information including property description and image; value range and market shift; potential market and neighbourhood risks.

NAS Intelligent Valuation Portal ("IVP"):
Teranet data will be used to enrich the NAS IVP decision tree which routes each deal request to the appropriate valuation product.

Teranet AVM Portfolio Update Service:
Teranet and NAS will provide periodic property value updates to end users.  Users can now elect to receive updated property value information on the properties for which they request valuation services.

NAS ViewPoint Report:
As part of the NAS ViewPoint Report, a subset of the Teranet data, such as appraised value and recent sale activity will be used to generate incremental flags shown on the report.
