Home Loan Application FAQ: From a MLO in Tampa, Florida

Mortgage and Lending with Bay to Bay Lending LLC


When applying for a home loan, the lender must disclose to you the score that a consumer reporting agency

distributed to users and that the lender used in connections with your home loan, along with the key factors

affecting your credit scores.

Elements of your credit score

A credit score is a computer generated summary calculated at the time of the request and based on

information that a consumer reporting agency or lender has on file.  The scores are based on data about

your credit history and payment patterns.  Credit scores are important because they are used to assist the

lender  in determining whether you will obtain the loan.  They are also be used to determine what interest

rate you may be offered on the mortgage.  Credit scores can change over time, depending on your conduct,

how your credit history and payment patterns change, and how credit scoring technologies change.

Because the score is based on information in your credit history, it is very important that you review the

credit-related information that is being furnished to make sure it is accurate.  Credit records may vary from

one company to another.

In addition to credit scores, there are other factors that are considered by lenders when determining the

interest rate that is offered. These factors include:

1.       Amount of equity or down payment in the home.

2.       Amount of the final loan amount.  Small loan amounts are generally charged a premium add on to the

rate by lenders.

3.       Length of interest rate lock period.

4.       The state that the property is located in.

5.       Type of loan being sought (FHA, Conventional, Jumbo, VA)
