Update - 2007-12-28: Webster Bank has issued another Memo, this time shuttering ALL wholesale lending activities:

"Webster has completed a strategic review of options for the Mortgage Banking business and has decided that future originations will focus on direct to consumer retail originations. We will reorganize and streamline the Mortgage Banking group to maximize support of Webster's direct and retail banking activities. We will discontinue wholesale and correspondent loan originations."

Original Post - 207-11-20: Webster Bank has distributed an email to approved Brokers announcing the closing of their Wholesale Division. Per the memo, dated today:


Regrettably, due to current market conditions, effective November 30, 2007 Webster Bank will no longer accept new loan submissions in the Regional Wholesale Offices outside of the bank footprint in the New England area. All loans that have been locked or submitted on or before November 30, 2007 will be honored subject to the terms below. Webster Bank will, however, continue to offer you operations support in the current Regional Offices through January 31, 2008, to ensure underwriting, closing and funding of your loans."

HUD reports over 327 million dollars in volume per month. Emails and telephone calls to the Bank have not been responded to at this time. More information as it becomes available.

Important: This company is on our list of lending operations that have "imploded". However, please note that "imploded" is a somewhat subjective and does not necessarily mean operations are ceased permanently: it can mean bankruptcy filing, temporary but open-ended halting of major operations, or "firesale" acquisition. All information here is provisional, and may contain inaccuracies (especially newer information). If you are planning on doing business with this company or any other one listed on this site, you should inquire with them directly on whether they can still meet your needs. Many are still operating in some capacity.
