What Are the Responsibilities of a Home Loan Agent?

What are the responsibilities of a home loan agent? A mortgage loan originator works for a mortgage lender and performs tasks such as verifying the closing documents, initializing loans, and following through with the approval process. Their role is to verify the borrower's financial status and credit information to ensure compliance with local laws. However, they can work for a variety of organizations, too, such as banks and lending institutions.

Passing paperwork to underwriters

The job of a home loan agent includes passing paperwork to underwriters for approval. This process is automated, but the paperwork that goes into it is more complicated and usually takes longer. The underwriter, a live person who will review your application, is there to make sure that you are financially capable of repaying the loan. A home loan agent can help you understand what's involved with manual underwriting.


A home loan agent must pass your paperwork to underwriters for approval. The underwriter will review your credit report and if necessary, your income and debt information. The underwriter will also check if there are any underlying guidelines, such as VA or FHA requirements. After they are satisfied, they will mark the loan as "clear to close."


A loan agent will also need to provide documents to verify the information that you provide in your application. You must supply copies of your personal tax returns and balance sheets for people who own their own businesses. In addition, a home loan agent will need to send your documents to an appraisal company to check the value of your home. This process will help to ensure that you are not overpaying for your home and that you will be able to make your payments.


Taking part in home loan closings

When you are applying for a home loan, you may be asked to provide updated documentation about your income and assets. If you are self-employed, your lender will need to see your tax returns, Social Security benefits, or long-term disability income. The lender will create a copy of your application for closing, and you must check it for accuracy. You should also disclose any new debts you may have. The lender will then give you a Loan Estimate within three business days.


While you may be anxious to complete the paperwork, you must make sure to turn in all of the necessary documents. The lender may need to follow up with you for a few days if there are discrepancies or errors in your application. Your lender will likely send you a number of document requests, so have everything ready in advance. Having all your documents ready and available in one location will ensure that any lender requests are completed quickly.


If you are buying a home, it is important to take part in the process. If you are a first-time home buyer, it is important to become familiar with the process and be aware of the steps involved. Knowing what will happen next will help you prepare for potential roadblocks. If you know what to expect, you can help the closing agent complete documents and provide important information that will help you to make a smooth transition.
