What Can I Expect During the Purchase Process?

There are three main phases you can expect when you work with Mortgage Lending Services to finance a mortgage purchase loan. We understand that every home purchase is different, but below is what you can understand from a typical purchase process. The phases include:

Phase 1: Application

The first phase kicks off when you fill out the mortgage purchase application (we're here to help, just ask). At the same time, our team reviews your credit report and analyzes the loan proposals available in the market. Based on your goals, we narrow down and then explain the options you have to consider.

Within three business days, we provide all disclosures you are required to receive by law, along with a list of documents you will need to provide, so we can process and underwrite your mortgage application. We then ask that you provide us with the requested documents within four days.

Phase 1 = 14 Days

Phase 2: Underwriting

During this phase, Mortgage Lending Services submits orders to the third-party vendors to get the ball rolling. At the same time, we submit your loan application to our internal underwriting department to pre-review and verify your income, assets, employment and other required documentation.

The third-party vendor work assignments and paperwork are completed in seven days, submitted back to underwriting and a final determination is made that the loan is or isn't clear to close.

Phase 2 = 9 business days

Phase 3: Closing

After your loan is cleared to close, we schedule a date and time with you for the closing as soon as possible. Our team requests the closing documents from the title company chosen for your mortgage. You are provided with a document that details all of the costs associated with your loan. We review this with you prior to closing, so you know who you are paying, what you are being charged for and how much it all costs. The closing shouldn't take more than one hour.

Phase 3 = 1 hour

Phase 4: Feedback

Once your loan closes and you get all moved in, we provide you with a survey to share feedback on how we did. It's important to us to better ourselves and our process and we love to hear from the people we put in the home of their dreams.
