Well, there is one main reason for this. Verification of true identity is very important to the companies involved with lending. In today’s technology-driven world, the process of online completion gets easier and easier, buuuuuuuuut…. so does identity theft. How would you feel if your father or mother applied for a home loan in your name? How would you feel if your niece or nephew did?
