What’s Refunded If My Loan Is Higher Than My Estimate?
If the amount you pay at closing exceeds the amounts disclosed on the Loan Estimate – beyond tolerance limits for each category – the creditor must REFUND the excess to you no later than 60 calendar days after loan consummation.
For charges subject to a 10% cumulative tolerance fees greater than 10% of the Loan Estimate for the same charges must be refunded.
For fees paid for 3rd party services which the creditor did NOT permit you to shop the FULL amount over the estimate must be refunded.
For charges subject to ZERO tolerance including fees paid to the creditor mortgage broker or their affiliates any amount beyond the Loan Estimate must be refunded.
