Borrowers should get the necessary documents such as the following:
- two years tax returns, two year’s W-2s
- most recent paycheck stubs
- two months bank statements
- letters of explanations for credit inquiries
- bankruptcy, foreclosure
- deed in lieu of foreclosure
- short sale
- 401k statements
- investment accounts
- divorce decree
- letters of explanations for derogatory accounts
- other documents requested by the mortgage loan originator
Any missing documents that are not submitted with the initial mortgage documents will be conditioned on the initial conditional mortgage approval.
Conditional Mortgage Loan Approval
Once borrowers get a conditional loan approval, there will be a list of mortgage conditions requested by underwriter. Next step is clearing mortgage conditions:
- All conditions needs to be met and submitted to underwriter in order for underwriter to issue a clear to close
- It is the processor’s job to get the necessary conditions either by requesting it directly from the borrower or requesting through the loan originator
- It is not uncommon to have a line item of over 20 conditions
- The key is to get all the conditions at once and re-submit them to the underwriter
- Once conditions listed on the conditional approval is satisfied and submitted to the underwriter, it normally takes 24 to 48 hours for the underwriter to either issue a clear to close
Or get borrowers an updated conditional loan approval.
Clearing Mortgage Conditions For UPDATED Conditional Approvals
Updated conditional loan approval means that the underwriter did not get all of the conditions:
- Or that the underwriter issued a fresh batch of conditions
- Again, if all of the requested mortgage conditions were not submitted, the underwriter will not sign off on a clear to close
- This will cause a delay in getting a clear to close
- Some mortgage underwriters will not get back to you for 48 to 72 hours after submitting conditions
- So every time conditions are submitted and it is missing items, borrowers are looking at delays
Many veteran experienced processors will not submit conditions even if they are missing just one minor items due to the delay factor.
