Minimize mortgage loan disruptions with deeper liens and judgments intelligence

Early access to full perspective into a loan applicant’s complete credit profile, including information on tax liens and civil judgments, is essential to help minimize unexpected roadblocks and delays that add costs and inefficiencies into the mortgage lending process. Derogatory information can quickly highlight a loan applicant’s diminished creditworthiness and help alert mortgage lenders to carefully investigate additional credit risk that may be associated with the applicant. The presence of a lien and/or judgment in a consumer profile significantly complicates an applicant’s ability to secure a loan and may jeopardize the intended primary lien status of the pending mortgage. Typically, before issuing a loan, lenders and title insurers require an applicant to resolve the open lien or judgment by either paying it off or committing to a structured payment plan. Mortgage loan interest rates are also negatively impacted by the presence of liens or judgments information. To protect against unnecessary risk and make profitable real estate lending decisions, mortgage lenders need access to liens and judgments information early in the mortgage lending cycle.

Liens and judgments information is critical, and commonly utilized, risk decisioning intelligence that helps lenders assess creditworthiness, manage risk and determine interest rates. LexisNexis® Risk Solutions is uniquely positioned to offer FCRA-ready liens and judgments information and connect that data to specific consumers to help mortgage lenders minimize disruptions and make confident real estate lending decisions. By combining the industry’s largest collection of public records and alternative data sources with our powerful linking technology, we provide mortgage lenders with broader perspective into a consumer’s creditworthiness to support stronger risk-based decisioning.
