There are 10 things you should not do after you have applied for a mortgage.There are a lot of blogs and articles on what to do or not to do before you apply for a mortgage, but it is rarely addressed how a borrower’s action after applying for a mortgage can affect the outcome of the closing.The 10 things you should not do are listed below:
1.Don’t open new credit accounts.Yes you may need a new washer, dryer and/or refrigerator for your new home but that new debt may hurt you if you have a border line approval.
2.Don’t charge a lot on your existing credit cards.If the monthly amount increases greatly, your debt to income ratio may be too high if you have a border line approval.
3.Don’t have your credit pulled.Your credit will be rechecked just before closing and you will be required to answer in writing any new credit inquires.This may lower your FICO score or delay your closing while this new condition clears underwriting.
4.Don’t change jobs or quit your job.Your employment will be re-verified just before closing.
5.Don’t transfer money around in your accounts unless you can fully document where the money came from.
6.Don’t deposit cash or other non-payroll direct deposits unless you can fully document it.
7.Don’t bring any money that is required at closing unless it is from an account that has been verified and documented
8.Don’t dispute any items on your credit report.Any disputes that shows up on the credit re-pull just before closing will have to be settled before you can close.
9.Don’t make any late payments.Pay all bills on time.
10.Don’t pay off or cancel any accounts you may have, this can lower your credit score.
