Hey was suppose to close august 31 but thats not going to happen because the appraisal took so long. But as of august 21 my lender said my file has been sent to usda they are currently reviewing apps from august 7 so I have a few weeks befor they look at mine. I guess my question is what do they look for that the banks dont. There was no problems geting approved through the bank and the bank underwriter had no issues besides waiting for the appraisal.so if the bank approved it should I be good to go or does usds do things differently. This loan is in Ohio
I just closed on my USDA loan in OH on 7.19.2012.
From what I was told your bank underwrites to USDA guidelines, USDA then verifies all of the underwriting that your UW did (Income calculation for the program, loacation elligibility) Then they issue their "conditional commitment" which may contain additional conditions you have to meet before closing.
They aren't really looking for anything different than the bank, just verifying that the bank did their job correctly.
I waited 28 days on USDA... They don't move very fast
Yea I call the hotline everyday just to see what day there working on.
LOL... I did the same thing! It almost sounds like we worked with the same LO
Do you mind sending me the automated number for USDA in Ohio? Our app was submitted to the lender yesterday; just want to see what the timeline will be like once USDA gets it. Thanks!
