How Automated Underwriting Systems Work
Automated underwriting systems (AUS) are used by all traditional lenders to determine your eligibility for a home mortgage.
The danger with “automated” underwriting is that there is no real filter to determine whether or not the information being input into the system is accurate.
Most borrowers will not have to worry about automated underwriting issues. If you have anything out of the ordinary with your application like changes in employment or income, not-so-perfect credit, past financial hardship or any other number of things, you will want to make sure you’re working with an experienced loan officer with underwriting guideline experience.
