Looking to buy a home in the Fort Myers or Cape Coral areas and wondering if your settlement charges can change if you are in the middle of the closing process?
Yes, your settlement charges can change if circumstances change, such as:
- A natural disaster damages the property or affects closing costs.
- If any of the 3rd-parties impacting the estimate goes out of business during underwriting.
- New information on you or the transaction affecting settlement is discovered.
If any of these events change 3rd-party charges beyond the 10% tolerance limit creditors may issue a revised Loan Estimate.
If a creditor issues a Loan Estimate they are presumed to have collected all 6 pieces of required information. They may not claim a change in circumstances by receiving one of these pieces of information AFTER issuing a Loan Estimate.
