What your Lender is Working on

Once you provide us with the information listed above, we will began working on your loan application process. Below is a simple outline of the steps we will be taking.

PROCESSING - Our processing department will double check all your information and documents. Once everything has been validated, our processing department will order the appraisal for you after the inspection is completed and order the Title Commitment to assure the title is cleared. They will also pre-underwrite and prepare the loan for your approval.

UNDERWRITING - Your loan will be reviewed a final time by our underwriting department. This will be the concluding step to your loan approval.

TITLE COMPANY - Your Title Company will prepare your Hud-1 Settlement Statement and contact you to review the settlement figures. The final Settlement Statement will be emailed to all parties 48 hours prior to closing.

CLOSING - Now that everything has been approved and finalized, your Loan Officer will inform you of your closing details
