Loan underwriting is the last step in mortgage process where the borrower’s creditworthiness is scrutinized closely. However, with the changes in Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s latest requirements, the underwriting standards have become more rigorous than ever. An underwriter has to perform thorough due diligence of the applicant’s file to ensure that the information is accurate and documentation reliable for smooth closing. Even though automation has been readily incorporated in mortgage underwriting process, underwriters are still required to investigate the applicant meticulously and determine their reimbursement capacity. For this purpose, lenders or financial institutions either work with in-house underwriters or outsource their loan underwriting services to mortgage underwriting companies.
Having an experienced mortgage underwriting company to handle your mortgage underwriting process can not only give you speed and efficiency, but also cost-effectiveness and peace of mind.
