HARP 2.0 Refinance Checklist - Steps To Getting Approved

Determine If Your Loan Is Backed By Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac

You can check "lookup" forms on the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac web sites. However, keep in mind that these web forms are not always accurate as the address would have to be exactly the same as was recorded with Fannie or Freddie.

An important thing to remember is that applying for a HARP loan on property in Arizona or California may initially be quite confusing given the number of forms that need to be completed and you must realize that the organization is not your money lender, but an insurer of your loan from a bank or financial institution. However, do not make the mistake of applying for large credit lines, buying new vehicles or increasing your credit card limit. This will undoubtedly negatively affect the income to debt ratio and could disqualify you from getting a HARP loan.

One last tip: your papers must be absolutely current, valid and in order. Failure to enclose even one minor document can disqualify you. When going to submit your papers, make sure that you carry all originals that may be verified against enclosed copies if required. These include bank statements, check stubs and all assorted loan papers which the authorities have every right to check and may ask  for from time to time while processing your application.
