We understand COMPLIANCE is important to you and your customers.

City of Oaks Title's efforts in this area MEET or EXCEED industry standards and provide significant assurance concerning a lender's compliance responsibilities for the selection and monitoring of third-party providers required by regulations of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and other state and federal regulatory agencies.

If you touch consumer funds in any way, you are going to be affected by Dodd-Frank Act and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
