The Redesigned URLA
The URLA has been updated to include some new (and removing some old) information borrowers must furnish in the application process, in the aim of providing greater clarity and easier use during this time.
The URLA accomplishes this by organizing information borrowers must provide, acknowledge, and agree to, compared to information the lender must collect and verify during processing and underwriting of the loan.
In addition, the GSEs have updated sections of the URLA to help lenders increase turn-around times by capturing more complete application information from borrowers by bolstering certain areas of the application such as income verification, military service, assets and liabilities, and more in depth property information.
A sample of the current form can be seen to the left, and a completed form may be downloaded using the links above.
