Sufficient Info to Complete Application (GFE)

Answered by: 

Question: 
In reviewing the FAQs from HUD concerning Early Disclosures (GFE), a loan originator must issue a GFE no later than 3 business days after the loan originator receives an application or information sufficient to complete an application. Application is defined as the submission of a borrower's financial information in anticipation of a credit decision relating to a federally related mortgage loan, which shall include the following: (1) borrower's name, (2) borrower's monthly income; (3) borrower's social security number to obtain a credit report; (4) property address; (5) estimate of value of the property; (6) loan amount and (7) any other information deemed necessary by the loan originator. When we receive an application online, it does not contain all the documents listed in our "application" (sales contract). Are we still required to send the GFE based on the information received that is considered "sufficient to complete the application".
Answer: 

The sales contract is a verification document and you cannot require verification documents as a condition of issuing the GFE.
