Mortgage Loan process & documents

In the mortgage loan process a few things happen sequentially. The first is a borrower(potential home owner, home owner seeking to refinance or a home equity) start the process of finding a lender they want to work with and complete a loan application. Once the loan application is approved a number of things can happen. Normally the mortgage company or lender begins a title search and prep of documents. Next an appraisal is done. After the appraisal or during the appraisal a title search is ordered. Once the necessary mortgage documents have been prepared and the appraisal and title search documents are completed, the final step is to have the borrower sign everything with a authorized notary. Many lenders have their own in house notary agent but with the current enormous surge in online lenders more and more borrowers are finding their home loan needs online. This is good for the independent notary because the online lenders outsource their notary needs to independent notary agents.
