Perform credit analysis, with or without the assistance of automated underwriting system, to determine borrowerÕs willingness and ability to repay the debt. This is done by reviewing the credit application to determine the loan amount and term, addressing potential red flags, assessing bank relationship, analyzing credit history, calculating income and proposed payment to income, debt to income and loan to value ratios.
Review credit documents for completeness and accuracy.
Review collateral value of the subject property.
Examine income documentation to verify that the borrower has the capacity to repay the loan.
Underwrite all products offered by the company to include real estate secured products and unsecured products.
