Newmark and OSC Announce Mortgage Industry’s First Total Flood™ Solution


ATLANTA, GA., March 28, 2024 – OSC, an established lender-placed insurance and tracking technology company of Steamboat Group, in partnership with Newmark Valuation & Advisory (V&A) and powered by CoreLogic Flood Services data, is pleased to announce the launch of the mortgage industry’s first Total Flood™ solution, designed for the needs of banks, credit unions and mortgage services.

Increased regulatory focus on climate change and ongoing supervisory scrutiny means that banks, credit unions, mortgage lenders, commercial banks, and servicers must accurately implement and enforce the mandatory purchase of flood insurance. This requirement under the Flood Disaster Protection Act serves to protect collateral, reduce risk within a portfolio, and ensure strong, long-term relationships with your customers.

By combining OSC’s tracking and lender-placed insurance solutions, Newmark’s regulatory compliance expertise, and CoreLogic’s data/analytics, we are now able to offer lenders and servicers something previously unavailable in the market. This comprehensive set of solutions will support and improve flood compliance programs from initial assessment—including flood compliance analysis, flood determinations, loan onboarding—to the renewal of flood insurance policies and flood map changes, as well as administration of lender-placed options when required.

“This solution is truly a game-changer,” said Don Curtis, SVP Business Development, OSC. “This partnership will cover the needs of our clients every step of the way. We can close gaps in procedures, reduce risk within a portfolio, and manage the lender-placed insurance process, all within a single solution.”

“The timing of this combined effort could not be more appropriate,” said Joseph Posavec, EVP with Newmark’s Bank Credit Risk Solutions practice. “As the banking world grapples with flood insurance compliance and the insurance industry navigates coverage availability, the stakes have never been higher. This product line will offer much-needed relief to the sector.”
