List of Things Not to Do After Being Approved for a Mortgage Loan


Do not do if you are approved for a Mortgage Loan

Home ownership is part of the American dream. If purchasing a house is the next step in your many life stages, youll need to start well in advance to prep your credit before visiting lenders.

If you have already applied for a mortgage loan and been approved, dont mess up your loan status by doing something that affects your qualification during the loan approval.

Unfortunately, many buyers dont know the lenders can and will check, run their credit reports again, confirm employments, the pre-approved clients even up to day of closing. Depending on the latest credit reports and credit scores in many cases, the previously pre-approved buyer could be OK with no change, denied of the loan completely or perhaps qualified with higher interest rate and/or different terms and conditions.

Following is a list of events that could impact lenders decision at the last minute, try to avoid them. Explanation of each bullet list could be from few paragraphs to pages and I have already written blogs on some of the items. Due to the size, I am just listing the items to avoid. If you want explanation or the reasoning for each item, please let me know I will provide that to you.

List of Donts After being approved for a Mortgage Loan and before closing:

Dont Do Any of These After Being Approved for a Mortgage Loan:
