Quick Start Guide: Lender Approval Functions


This Quick Start page defines Lender Approval functions.

Lender Approval

Lender Approval allows authorized users to perform lending institution-related functions, including payment of annual recertification fees, maintaining addresses and contact information, updating branch information, adding or terminating loan correspondents, and adding authorized agents. Lender Approval is divided into Title I and Title II functions. Depending upon the authorization(s) granted, you may access Title I (manufactured homes and home improvements) functions; Title II (multifamily and single family homes) functions; or both functions.

The Lender Approval Functions table that follows describes each function on the Lender Approval menu and its capabilities or the information it provides.

See also the Detailed Information Resources table for in-depth, illustrated training on the Lender Approval functions.
