We have had our complete FHA refinance package with the underwriting 2 weeks today. The loan officer tells us that it’s a more difficult file to process but says all looks good. I asked if they want to see any more documention and he told us that they haven’t asked for anything. We are getting concerned.

And at what point do we walk away and go with someone else? Best answer: Answer by MoneyMonkeySometime the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Ask him for a deadline, and keep calling him politely every day until it is complete. Ask him outright if you should be looking for a loan elsewhere. Add your own answer in the comments!
