How Microsoft 365 Copilot Can Help Mortgage Underwriters?

Mortgaging is one of the oldest methods of offering credits to loan seekers based on the property they have and their credibility. An experienced underwriter effectively does this. However, they are often put under a situation of pressure to handle such underwriting efforts.

Implementing a generative AI-based solution like Microsoft Copilot to such a critical task can help underwriters a great deal. Some of the major areas of pain for underwriters like; handling the correctness of the details collected about the applicants, evaluation of the property being mortgaged, their tax documentation and income sources validation, study of their credit history, etc., are handled with efficiency and can create a better and faster mortgaging process helping save time and resource.

Let us now analyze some of the key pain areas and how Mortgage Underwriters can utilize Copilot for Microsoft 365 to leverage the AI features to their benefit of saving time and delivering efficiency at every stage.

Analyzing the Accuracy of Details Received from the Applicant

Analyzing the details of every application to its precision is the foremost task of every mortgage underwriter. These are the preliminary details that are verified even before it is being processed. Implementing Microsoft Copilot for Mortgage Underwriters can be one of the best solutions to such a complex task.

The Microsoft Copilot platform can be customized to run through the details of every applicant if valid access is in place. Based on this, It can be trained to send automated reports on the correctness and also give suggestions for incorrect records. Hence, it becomes easier for underwriters to work on the identified flaws than to run through the entire form, which can range from tens to hundreds in a week.

Credit History Analysis of the Applicant

Any form of loan is processed and given at the risk of the credit provider. This means a clear-cut analysis of every borrower is mandatory. This becomes even more complex when such borrowers already have previously unsettled mortgages.

By integrating Microsoft Copilot into the task of getting to know and researching a borrower’s credit history, the underwriter’s methods of collecting information become easy with a quick search using simple prompts and queries.

But for this to happen the data must be already present locally and with proper legal approvals to run queries on such personal data which is not publicly available. When this is furnished in the form of Excel or a database file, copilot can quickly create valuable insights to analyze the applicant’s profile. This can help to complete the most important and time-intensive tasks efficiently.

Automating Document Organizing Process

Another very obvious and unavoidable task is to organize the documentation process for every mortgage to be approved and disbursed. This consumes almost 70% and above of the time by mortgage writers.

There are numerous documentation like birth proof, residence proof, bank statement, income and tax statements that are collected for every applicant and they have to be organized and maintained even before they are verified by the underwriters. This becomes the most resource-intensive action and can also put much pressure on them. Copilot can be automated to achieve organizing this in folders and subfolders to make it easy to access.

Every applicant’s documentation can be organized and maintained with their updated versions in the same repository. Such a task can be done by providing access to Copilot to these folders and reading them over simple chat that can smartly integrate where and how these are stored. Else this might take longer time for a new staff to identify and process such loads of documentation.

Analysis of Validity and Legal Compliance of the Property Being Mortgaged

This aspect is the crux of the entire process, as the credit institution takes the risk of lending money on the authenticity of the property being mortgaged. It is of utmost importance to do a proper verification of the property. To find out if this is a legally valid one, if this does not have past mortgages active on that, and if this is of value equivalent to the loan amount requested.

Copilot can be used to analyze such data once they are made accessible to be analyzed locally in the form of data acceptable by Copilot. Once available with proper access, Copilot can give great insights on the readable parameters that can help Underwriters to have simple and easily understood data insights for them to decide.

Effective Approval and Disbursement Process

Approval and disbursement of the loan amount within an acceptable time is the objective of every Mortgage Underwriter, this creates a good reputation for the credit institution. However, in many cases, the approval process is delayed due to many reasons. With Microsoft Copilot’s smart collaboration, they can quickly connect with the next available authority for approvals, collaborate with them to look up an erroneous record and correct it, identify last-minute changes in documents, and mitigate them promptly.


The credit industry has property mortgages as one of the key sources of business. This makes the role of mortgage underwriters crucial for processing every mortgage transaction successfully.

Mortgage Underwriters can utilize Copilot for Microsoft 365 to complete their daily tasks and make sure they achieve their targets most efficiently. They can handle the most time-consuming and critical tasks with ease and security. Features like automated documentation and verification, getting credit research completed quickly, making sure legal compliance is adhered to with templates already in place, and getting approvals done on time can make sure the entire workflow is transformed into the most efficient one. Thereby increasing the overall portfolio of every credit institution.
