General/About Us

How long has ADFITECH been in business?


Founded in 1983, ADFITECH is one of the oldest and largest audit firms of its kind. We provide loan-level mortgage audits to lenders of all sizes, in every state of the U.S. Learn More About Us




Can ADFITECH provide us a Mortgage Quality Control Plan? What does it cost?


Yes. ADFITECH has a QC Plan that has been accepted by every agency and private investor that we have presented it to. ADFITECH will work with you to customize a plan for your specific investor’s requirements. This included at no additional cost as part of our mortgage QC services. To learn more about our QC plans and what ADFITECH can do for your organization, schedule a demo.




Do I have to sign a long term contract to do business with ADFITECH?


No. The ADFITECH agreement is a month-to-month agreement. You are under no contractual obligation to continue doing business with ADFITECH; however, we are confident that you will continue to use our services because of the quality of our work and outstanding customer service. Learn More About Our Services




What QC software do you use? Can I buy it?


ADFITECH uses a proprietary Mortgage Quality Control software package that has been developed by us, for us which is constantly updated and refined.
We do not sell our software because we believe it is also necessary to have the trained professionals that know QC and can provide our clients with years of experience that you can not get by simply buying a software program.




Is ADFITECH approved by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, VA, FHLB?


No. All the agencies maintain a policy against “approving” any vendor. However, ADFITECH has had a long-standing relationship with all of the agencies and is recognized as a leader in the industry with a reputation for excellence. The references we receive from our satisfied clients are the best “approval” we can hope for.




Can we send a test file for review?


Yes. We would need to both sign an NDA and Confidentiality Agreement to ensure the privacy of your customer and give us the authority to conduct the necessary investigation.
This would not obligate you to send any future work to us. If you want to stop after the test file, that is your choice. On the other hand, if you do choose to continue with ADFITECH’s Mortgage Quality Control Services, all we have to do is execute a Master Agreement for QC Services and you are ready to go.




What makes ADFITECH different from other Mortgage QC vendors?


Customer Service. From the day you sign up, you will experience a level of customer service that is unparalleled in the industry. You will be assigned to a team of customer service professionals dedicated to all your mortgage quality control needs. All ADFITECH mortgage audit personnel are full-time staff employees. We do not outsource or hire subcontractors to do quality control reviews, which means that you are assured a consistently high level of accuracy and professionalism. ADFITECH also maintains an Auditor Training School to assure that all of our employees are properly trained and up to date on all the regulatory changes. In addition, ADFITECH has an internal Quality Assurance department responsible for reviewing the work of every auditor on a regular basis. So, you can be assured that the audit reports you receive are accurate and well documented. View Our Blog with Updates on Industry Changes Learn More About Us




How do you protect my customer’s private information?


ADFITECH has many layers of security in place to protect your customer’s private information.

  • ADFITECH begins by performing a thorough background investigation, including drug testing, on every employee before being hired.
  • ADFITECH’s location in Edmond, Oklahoma, is a controlled access facility, with state of the art, 24-hour video surveillance.
  • All reviews are performed on-site by full-time staff auditors. ADFITECH does not outsource or employ contract underwriters to review our client’s files.
  • All loan data and loan file images are stored in our LOANVAULT® imaging system and are protected with 132-bit encryption and firewall protection, within a fireproof concrete vault. All information is continually backed up to our second building as well as a secure co-location, to ensure zero downtime in the event of a natural disaster.
  • The ADFITECH I.T. staff constantly monitors all email and data transmissions for viruses and breaches of security.

Contact Us or Schedule a Demo to learn more.




How do I sign up with ADFITECH?


All you have to do is sign the Agreement for Mortgage Quality Control Services and the Confidentiality Agreement, which spells out the responsibility of both parties in collecting and using consumer information for mortgage audit purposes. You are NOT committed to a long term agreement or obligated to a minimum number of loan reviews each month. That is up to you. To proceed, contact us.





Mortgage Quality Control

Is the mortgage audit Agency Specific?


Yes. Our loan level covers Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, VA and USDA Mortgage Quality Control requirements. However, we have experience in Reverse, Fix & Flip, Seasoned, Non-QM, Jumbo and other products.




How often should a mortgage audit be performed?


Monthly. It is recommended and dictated by most of the agencies that a QC audit be performed on a monthly basis. Current investor guidelines require selections to be completed within 30 days of closing and the audit must be completed within 60 days of selection or 90 days of closing.
Doing the mortgage audit on a monthly basis will give you the information you need in a timely manner to correct errors in processing and give your employees the training they need to succeed. It is necessary for you to deliver the loan data and loan files to QC in a timely manner in order to keep you in compliance.




What are your turnaround times?


ADFITECH would like to have four to six weeks to complete a comprehensive review. This would allow time for all the re-verification and field appraisal reviews to be returned and analyzed. Our target is to return results within thirty to forty days of receiving the complete set of loan files.




What is a defect rate?


The significant defect rate is the percentage of loans with four or five rated errors.




Do you complete desk reviews of the appraisal and order 10% field review appraisals per HVCC QC requirements?


Yes. ADFITECH performs a desk review appraisal on every loan which meets HVCC requirements, and we track and order the necessary Field Appraisals on 10% of the Q.C. review population. The desk appraisal review is included in our per-file cost and we only pass along the actual third party cost of the field appraisal review to you.




Do you complete Federal and State high-cost testing?


Yes. ADFITECH includes a Federal High Cost analysis in every loan review and we can order State-Specific High Cost testing from a third-party vendor for an additional fee.




Do you perform a compliance review?


Yes. All ADFITECH loan audits include a comprehensive Mortgage Compliance Review. All disclosures are checked for accuracy and completeness and the Closing Disclosure is reviewed and recalculated.




Do you send out re-verifications?


Yes. Using the information provided in the loan file, ADFITECH will re-verify all employment and asset information, by mail, fax, and telephone. ADFITECH will order the necessary credit reports and field appraisals.




Can I deliver the files in an electronic format?

Can I get access to the actual loan file from the website?

Can I get reports in electronic format?

The Loans page allows you to view the QC findings and images for a specific loan. The Classic Reports page allows you to generate PDF reports of the current QC Results in real-time.
