cases if the client has met all of these above requirements. Sometimes Mr. Shah
looks at his credit bureaus report or checks his own account histories, and may
find something negative that he was unaware of. For approving loan, He needs to
observe some legal documents of borrower such as application forms, valid IDs,
tax return for two years (T4 or T4A), recent employment details, and checks the

office to sign new mortgage documents, provide proof of ID and /fire insurance,
and pay your lawyer for any closing cost.

account into the loan account for the agreed upon payment amount. This transfer
is schedule monthly or weekly. Moreover, After the account is set up, a
transfer of the loan is made from the loan account to the borrower’s operating
account so that borrower can use the fund. In Some cases, the process of the
loan may be wired directly to a lawyer who may be using funds for the purchase
of a new home for the client. The Manager is also helpful during the all loan
approval process. Manager is usually ready to help him, when he needs help of
manager. Manager verify all documents before sending to mortgage department. Furthermore,
manager has the power to disburse loan. Mr. Shah avoids some major issues such
as borrowing too late, making weak pitches for borrowers, missing important
