It is the responsibility of the lender and their team to go through all of this information and make sure that everything is up to date and accurate.

In other words, the underwriters job is to make sure that your information meets the standards required by the loan.

There may be several requirement asked of you during the underwriting process. After the underwriter has completed their end of the job, they will send back the papers with a list of conditions you will need to comply with.
