PLANO, Tex. - H&R Block Mortgage Corp. announced Monday that it will offer real estate information and closing services to its customers through LandSafe Inc., a subsidiary of Countrywide Credit Industries Inc.

Through the LandSafe deal - which is part of a larger agreement to use Countrywide technology - H&R Block will offer its customers automated property appraisals, credit reporting, flood determination, life-of-loan tracking, and various proprietary risk and valuation products for residential mortgage transactions.

"Being able to offer LandSafe's closing services was an added bonus in doing the deal with Countrywide," said Pat Rank, president of H&R Block Mortgage. "It makes our alliance that much stronger."

In addition to the LandSafe technology, H&R Block Mortgage said it has integrated its loan origination system with Countrywide's Platinum Direct network, which provides one-stop service for a variety of loan underwriting, pricing, and processing services.

H&R Block Mortgage provides residential loan products through its branch offices, regional telemarketing centers, and H&R Block Financial Advisors locations in the United States.
