Underwriting & Conditions - should I be worried??

I have submitted everything that was listed below, and can come up with the reserves by closing, but should I be worried about a possible denial after being  previously approved or is most of this pretty standard for someone with borderline credit (649 mid score)?

2)       Need November Chase statements – All pages. Will need December’s as well when they become available.

3)       We need to verify sufficient liquid funds needed for closing plus 3 months proposed housing payment ($1,871.36) for reserves. Underwriting condition - 3mo PITI in liquid reserves (must be borrower's own funds: (gift and 401k not acceptable) Will not accept 401K or Gift to meet the reserve requirements***

4)       HUD-1 from sale of previous property

8)       Verify amount of earnest money (EMD) paid / cleared from an acceptable source.

9)       Provide satisfactory signed credit explanation addressing all prior issues, include appropriate supporting documentation. ** See attached report for assistance with this.

10)   Satisfactory verification of rent from property management company; if renting from an individual, provide 12mo cancelled rent checks supporting on time payments.-***if applicable*** If not paying rent, provide signed & dated letter explaining the situation.

12)   Satisfactory inquiry letter signed by the borrower(s). All inquiries within the past 90 days explained and borrower to confirm if any new debt(s) have been established (any new debt must be considered in qualifying). ** See attached report for assistance with this.

Seems pretty straight forward. Each lender/underwriter is going to be a little different I think. Ours for example did not ask for proof of rent or liquid assets equal to 3 months of PITI, most of the other stuff on your list though we were also asked for, and then some items that aren't on your list.

Your list is completely normal and not dictated by the credit score.
