For Lite-R Membership

MERS® System Member that closes MOM loans for immediate sale to an Investor. Lite-R Members do not have access to the MERS® System necessary to register loans or perform other transactions and therefore it is the responsibility of the intended Investor of a MOM loan closed by a Lite-R Member to register that loan on the MERS® System.
