Job Description for Loan Underwriter, Mortgage

Mortgage loan underwriters are responsible for approving or rejecting mortgages. To make this decision, the mortgage underwriter must generate a risk report and demonstrate how the contents of the report are within the lender's guidelines for approval, or how the contents of the report fail to meet the guidelines. The first thing that mortgage underwriters do is obtain and review credit reports for prospective debtors. Next, they obtain information from prospective debtors about their income, and possibly their assets and other debts. Afterward, mortgage underwriters will determine what collateral is available that can be used to back the mortgage.
