Advantages of Private Note Processing

FINS Private Note Processing account advantages

  • If the parties need “note modification” FINS can help you in the implementation and reset of the servicing to reflect the change and proceed with the new accounting of the loan.
  • The parties have access to a customer service representative, FINS is always ready to serve you.
  • If there is more than one person receiving payments on the note, FINS can provide payment accounting to each Seller/Lender.
  • There are no “hidden fees.” A small monthly loan servicing fee covers all routine services. There is a fee schedule provided that covers non- routine charges.
  • FINS is a third-party that provides security in document holding. That is to say if the Seller/Lender were to move, get divorced, or pass away, the third party holds on to the documents that can release the lien documents upon payment in full. 
  • FINS will provide to a third-party documentation for verification as needed after a proper waiver by the party to the account.
