Mortgage Loan Acquisition Due Diligence
Expert loan review analysis drives higher credit quality, increased deal pull-through, reduced buy-back risks
Mortgage lenders and mortgage investors grapple with a multitude of QC related challenges at the point of acquisition – from ensuring accurate documentation to maintaining stringent compliance.
No two mortgage loans are alike. This results in several challenges at the point of loan acquisition, including disparate income and debt calculations, disparate or missing documentation, and inconsistent regulatory compliance. Lenders and investors need accurate and actionable mortgage loan review analysis to ensure the acquisition of quality loans, fill gaps in product knowledge, and accelerate delivery timelines.
