In addition to originating
mortgages, the platform
seamlessly integrates with
hundreds of leading industry
applications, including document
preparation, compliance,
mortgage insurance and title
services. This addition to
USRES' set of tools and offerings
further cements their
commitment to providing the
best, most transparent
experience in the AMC space.
LendingQB has also
announced a partnership with
CondoTek, provider of
CondoPak, a solution for lenders
underwriting condominium loans.
CondoPak includes the
necessary condominium
documents for lenders to review
to be able to warrant and
approve condominiums.
CondoPak is offered at a flatrate fee that lenders can elect to
pass-through to the borrower
creating transparency and
consistency when underwriting a
condominium loan. The lender
opens CondoPak within the
Lending QB platform and all
documents are uploaded directly,
completely streamlining the work
flow. Mortgage lending
organizations of all types and
sizes benefit from this efficiency.
Integrating CondoPak to
LendingQB brings lenders a
seamless experience that makes
the loan process fast and
efficient.
David Colwell, Vice President
of LendingQB Strategy, said,
"Integrating with CondoTek is an
example of how LendingQB
provides lenders with specialized
solutions. Our clients have told
us that gathering condominium
documents is a significant drain
on their resources. Having a
solution like CondoPak available
through our API's makes it easy
for us to offer our clients access
to this service and streamline the
Condominium underwriting
process. We're pleased to
partner with CondoTek."
