What is an underwriting service?
Underwriting (UW) services are provided by some large financial institutions, such as banks, insurance companies and investment houses, whereby they guarantee payment in case of damage or financial loss and accept the financial risk for liability arising from such guarantee.
Do underwriters charge commission?
An underwriter is any party, usually a member of a financial organization, that evaluates and assumes another party’s risk in mortgages, insurance, loans, or investments for a fee in the form of a commission, premium, spread, or interest.
How does the underwriting process work?
Underwriting simply means that your lender verifies your income, assets, debt and property details in order to issue final approval for your loan. An underwriter is a financial expert who takes a look at your finances and assesses how much risk a lender will take on if they decide to give you a loan.
