When you apply for a mortgage loan, the lender will evaluate your loan application closely. After the loan officer collects all of the appropriate information from you, it will be sent to a mortgage underwriter. Home loan underwriting is an important step in the process of getting approved for a mortgage. Every loan must go through underwriting in order to get approved. If you understand how underwriting works, you’ll be less likely to get impatient or frustrated with the process.
