From the Introduction
Commercial real estate underwriting often follows a classic "cart before the horse" system. Borrowers and their brokers initiate loan applications with one, or often several, lenders, who in turn present "soft," non-binding quotes. If accepted by the borrower, these are then authenticated only after exhaustive due diligence and evaluations.
It is efficient for neither party and needlessly time-consuming and costly for both.
Precept's The Handbook of First Mortgage Underwriting details the foundation for an entirely new approach, one that standardizes and legitimizes the commercial real estate underwriting process with a single set of rules that shapes, clarifies, and simplifies each step. The first comprehensive, uniform set of underwriting guidelines for commercial property, it describes steps any lender can adopt to facilitate:
-Data Collection Rules on exactly what information must be gathered, with a standardized form to record the information
-Validation Guidelines as to which data should be validated, and precisely why and how this should occur
-Analysis A specific underwriting methodology that guides how lenders and third parties should analyze cash flows, credit, and more
-Presentation Logical categories for summarizing and reviewing information, and tracking conclusions back to their underlying data
-Third Party Reports Directions on what they should contain, and how they should be conducted and used by the underwriter
The Handbook of First Mortgage Underwriting outlines a rigid, straightforward underwriting process, one that creates a consistent process for collecting, analyzing, and summarizing available data. Featuring numerous forms, checklists, and examples, it contains everything required for a complete presentation of the underwriting conclusions to clearly highlight any credit or collateral issues.About the Author:
