What To Look For Before You Close
What do you look for 3 days before you close on your home???
YOUR Closing Disclosure… it is a five-page form that provides final details about the mortgage loan you have selected. It includes the loan terms, your projected monthly payments, and how much you will pay in fees and other costs to get your mortgage (closing costs).
The lender is required to give you the Closing Disclosure at least three business days before you close on the mortgage loan. This three-day window allows you time to compare your final terms and costs to those estimated in the loan estimate that you previously received from the lender. The three days also gives you time to ask your lender any questions before you go to the closing table.
You will NOT receive a Closing Disclosure if you’re applying for a reverse mortgage. For those loans, you will receive two forms-a Hud -1 Settlement Statement and a final Truth in Lending Disclosure.
If you are applying for a HELOC (home equity line of credit), a manufactured housing loan that is not secured by real estate, or a loan through certain types of homebuyer assistance programs, you will not receive a HUD-1 or a Closing Disclosure, but you should receive a Truth-in-Lending disclosure.
