Basically, while you are in the process of getting a new mortgage, keep your financial status as stable as possible until the loan is closed and funded.
Any number of minor changes could easily raise a red flag or cause a negative impact on a credit score that may result in a denied loan.
Most importantly, check with us on even the simplest questions to make sure your loan approval is successful.
This list of typical loan documentation may be helpful.
Any deposits other than
auto-deposited payroll may require additional documentation. In general you
should plan on all of your bank accounts being “under the microscope” for
mortgage underwriting until the loan has closed. So if there are going to be
any unusual deposits or transfers please contact your lender first to be sure
you have the correct papertrail needed.
New credit Inquiries can mean closing problems!
The lender may pull a new credit report 0 - 3 days prior to the closing date. Any new inquiries, new debts or discrepancies may cause last minute problems or delays.
** The lender will also verbally verify that you are still employed right before closing.**
