In order to put a loan package together your Mortgage Banker at Direct Banc Mortgage will request from you certain documents that must be sent in a timely manner which can hold up the mortgage process if delayed.
The apprisal will be ordered by Direct Banc Mortgage as soon as the underwriter grants a loan approval contiengent on conditions. The appraisal is preformed to insure that the value of the home is consistant with the loan amount for a refinance. The appraisal typically takes 5 business days to be completed and reported back to us.
The title report is ordered by your Mortgage Banker for a refinance. The title report is intended to show if there are any liens or other problems with the property.
As soon as your Mortgage Banker collects all the documents needed for a loan package it is then organized and sent to an underwriter for approval. An approval typically takes from 24 to 48 hours.
When the underwriter grants an approval there are usually some conditions. These conditions may be “prior to doc” or “prior to closing.” It is extreamly important that all conditions be taken care of with your Mortgage Banker immediately in order to avoid any delays in loan signing. Once all the conditions are collected by your Mortgage Banker they are sent to the underwriter for final review and approval which typically takes from 24 to 48 hours.
Loan Docs & Signing
Once the underwriter gives the final approval, loan docs will be ordered by the funding department which will be sent out to the escrow company to be signed by the borrower. The escrow company sends the loan docs by a mobile notary to make it convenient for our clients. Loan documents are the mortgage documents that you will sign to close and fund your loan.
Funding & Recording
Once the loan docs get signed they get sent back to escrow where escrow packages them up and sends them back to Direct Banc Mortgage. The funder then checks all the signatures and makes sure all funding conditions are met. Once the funding conditions are approved by the funder the loan will be funded and recorded. This typically takes 24 to 48 hours after signing loan Docs. Overall the entire loan process takes from 14 to 21 days depending on how quickly the borrower works with their Mortgage Banker at Direct Banc Mortgage.
