DO notify your loan officer of any employment changes (i.e., change of employer; recent raise/promotion; change of pay status, such as salary to commission, etc.

DON'T change jobs/employer without inquiring about the impact this change would have on the approval/approvability of your mortgage loan
DON'T make major purchases during or prior to closing (i.e., new car, furniture, appliances, electronics) because this might impact your qualification ratios. Please confer with your loan officer to calculate what your ratios would be with any addition to debts.

DON'T close/open or transfer any asset accounts without inquiring about the proper documentation required for our loan file (i.e., if you transfer all the funds in your stock account to your savings account, documentation is required).
DON'T open or increase any liabilities, including credit cards, signature loans, etc., during the loan process. Please check with your loan officer for any documentation that will be required and what impact this would have on your qualification ratios.
