7 Things Not to Do Once You Are Approved for a Mortgage

Protect Your Mortgage Approval

Getting a home loan can be a stressful process. Once you are approved there are some very important things you should keep in mind between this approval and your funding date.

Many people don’t realize that changes in your finances can cause your lender to revoke the approval, so with that in mind here are seven things you’ll want to avoid doing until after you’re funded and in the clear:

1. Don’t transfer large sums between bank accounts.

2. Don’t forget to pay all of your bills, even some are in dispute.

3. Don’t open any new credit cards.

4. Don’t lease or finance a new car.

5. Don’t change jobs or start a new business.

6. Don’t make any random cash deposits to your bank accounts.

7. Don’t accept cash gifts without making sure you have paperwork in order to explain the gift.

I realize there may be situations where something is unavoidable (such as your car’s lease expiring, or fighting over a large medical bill), but before you do anything, you may want to talk to your loan officer about the situation to determine if it may have an adverse effect on your approval.
