"Because" ... The Mortgage Underwriter is Requesting it!

 "Because" ... 
The Mortgage Underwriter is Requesting it! 

       As parents, we often find ourselves trying to explain things or reason with our children.  And when we do, it's almost inevitable that we hear a "Why?" after each attempt.  I know each of my boys did this.  Sometimes relentlessly.  

https://1609956119.secure-loancenter.com/FreeConsult.aspx      If you're like me, when this occurred you eventually reached a breaking point.  Thoroughly exhausted mentally and having no more explanations, you finally offered up the only answer left to you ... "Because!" 

     I wrote a post entitled, "Creating a Paper Trail to Document Funds for Your Mortgage Closing".  In that post I related just how important it is to create and prepare a trail of easily-understood and easily-followed documentation prior to and during a Mortgage Application.

     This "paper trail" really trips-up some of my Applicants.  Especially when that "trail" has to be marked and clarified a bit better.  When that happens, it's not uncommon to hear the "Why?" question pop-up.    

     Now it's important to remember that each Mortgage Applicants' financial scenario is unique and different.  And the demands of Underwriting are based on those scenarios.  In other words, they can vary greatly.  

     When requests are made by Underwriters for further documentation, we (you and I as a team) must comply.  Some Applicants can get frustrated by this.  When that occurs, I've exhausted all my explanations, and I'm still meeting resistance for compliance, my last remaining answer can become ...  

     "Because."  "Because the Underwriter is requesting it." 
http://www.genemundt.com/MortgageChecklist.aspxTruth is: 
  • The Mortgage Process comes to a grinding halt if the requested documentation isn't submitted
  • If the documentation submitted doesn't fully answer and satisfy the Underwriter's question and concerns, it can mean you'll have to produce even more documentation ... or write an explanation addressing their concern

     I understand the feelings of frustration vented during those times.  But the bottomline for any Mortgage Applicant remains:   

     The Underwriter's request for documentation must be acknowledged, reacted to, and fulfilled as thoroughly and as quickly as possible. 

     There's no circumventing their request.  There's no talking them out of it.  The request may seem redundant to you. It may seem over-the-top.  But full compliance is mandatory or you go no further.  Period.

     Sometimes "Because" explains it perfectly ...
