Could My Loan Costs Exceed The Loan Estimate?
Yes, within defined limits.
Service charges for which YOU shop and select a provider may change; the creditor is NOT responsible for providers who are NOT on their written list.
In addition, prepaid interest, property insurance premiums and escrow or reserve deposits may change without legal tolerance limits.
Charges for recording services, and 3rd-party services ON the creditor list, grouped together may not exceed the Loan Estimate total for the same charges by more than 10%.
Transfer taxes, fees paid to the creditor, mortgage broker or an affiliate of either and fees paid to a 3rd party for services the creditor does NOT permit you to shop are ZERO tolerance and must match the Loan Estimate.
