Lending ABCs (From Q–Z)

Over the past two weeks, I explained some of the words that are commonly used in mortgage lending. This week, I wrap up with the final words you may hear when acquiring a mortgage through.

Qualifying Ratio - The comparison of a borrower's expenses, such as housing or debt to their income.

Refinancing - The act of paying off a loan with the funds from a new loan on the same property.

Start Rate - A pre-determined interest rate that will be applied to a loan until the date of the first interest rate change.

Term - The number of years until a loan is to be fully paid off.

Underwriting - Verifying data and evaluating a borrower's loan application. The underwriter gives the final approval of the loan.

VA Loan - Home loans that are available to U.S. veterans and are guaranteed by the U.S. Veterans Administration.

Walk-through - The final inspection of a home to inspect for damages or problems that may need to be fixed before closing.

Xtraordinary Operations Department - Make sure that the company you choose for your loan has talented processing and underwriters.

Year-end Statement - A report showing how much interested was paid during the year and the remaining mortgage balance owed.

Zoning Ordinances - Local laws that determine building codes and regulations on the use of a property.
