Residential Loan Underwriting Diploma

Residential Loan Underwriting Diploma

The most common type of underwriter is a mortgage loan underwriter. Mortgage loans are approved based on a combination of an applicant’s income, credit history, debt ratios, and overall savings. Mortgage loan underwriters ensure that a loan applicant meets all of these requirements, and they subsequently approve or deny a loan. Underwriters also review a property’s appraisal to ensure that it is accurate and the home is worth the purchase price and loan amount. Mortgage loan underwriters have final approval for all mortgage loans. Loans that are not approved can go through an appeal process, but the decision requires overwhelming evidence to be overturned. This diploma builds on the Residential Loan Underwriting Certificate to give job-specific knowledge and confidence to the process.   (Formerly CFT Training)
