1A preapproval is an initial determination of an applicant's ability to borrow up to a certain amount. It is based upon certain assumptions resulting from an initial review of incomplete credit information criteria. A preapproval is not an approval of a completed application nor is it a commitment to lend or a guarantee of any particular loan product, features or terms. Final loan approval follows a comprehensive analysis of an applicant's creditworthiness, the satisfaction of all product-specific underwriting requirements and conditions and property acceptability and eligibility.
