The lender gathers information about the borrower’s income and debts and makes a determination about how much home the borrower might be able to afford. Different loan programs may allow for different values, so it is important to obtain a pre-qualification for each type of program that is suitable.Get Pre-Qualified
Various fees and down payments are discussed and the borrower will receive a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and a Truth-In-Lending (TIL) statement within three days, which itemizes the rates and associated costs for the loan.Apply Now
The processor reviews the borrower’s credit reports and verifies his or her debts and payment histories as the VODs and VOEs are returned. Should there be any unacceptable late payments, collections for judgments, etc., a written explanation will be needed from the borrower. The processor also reviews the appraisal, survey and looks for property issues that may require further review.
The underwriter is responsible for determining whether the combined loan package passed over by the processor is an acceptable loan. At this time if more information is needed, the loan is put into “suspense” and the borrower is contacted to supply additional documentation.See Suggested Documents
During this time the title insurance is ordered, all required approval contingencies are met, and a closing time is scheduled for the loan.
At the closing, the lender “funds” the loan with a cashier’s check, draft or wire to the selling party in exchange for the title to the property. This is the point at which the borrower finishes the loan process and actually buys the house.
