For pdfFiller’s FAQs

Below is a list of the most common customer questions. If you can’t find an answer to your question, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

What if rates drop after I lock?

If you lock in a mortgage rate, you're committed to a worst case scenario. But if your rate lock expires and rates have gone down, you don't get the lower rate. You'll close at the rate you locked. However, many lenders will allow you to extend your lock if interest rates have risen.

Can I change lenders after locking?

Lock-ins are a big reason that borrowers choose to switch lenders. Imagine that you lock in a 30-year mortgage at a 4.5 percent rate for 30 days. Even if you let your lock expire, and don't close within 30 days, most lenders won't give you the lower rate at closing.

How long is a rate lock good for?

Usually, a rate lock is good for 30, 45 or 60 days, though that time period can be shorter or longer; once that period expires, the borrower is no longer guaranteed the locked-in rate unless the lender agrees to extend it.

Should I lock in my interest rate?

A rate lock protects you from higher rates, but you won't get a lower rate, either, unless you have the option for a one-time 'float down. ' Once locked, the loan's interest rate won't change barring any changes to your application details. You're protected from higher rates, but you won't get a lower rate, either.

Is today a good day to lock mortgage rates?

Mondays Are Safe, Wednesdays Are Unsafe It depends on your preference for risk. According to data compiled from MBSQuoteline, a provider of real-time mortgage market pricing, mortgage rates are most stable on Mondays, making that day the easiest on which to lock a low rate.

When can you lock in your interest rate?

Usually, a rate lock is good for 30, 45 or 60 days, though that time period can be shorter or longer; once that period expires, the borrower is no longer guaranteed the locked-in rate unless the lender agrees to extend it.

How long can you lock in mortgage rate?

How long can a rate be locked? Traditionally, a lender will lock an interest rate between 30 and 60 days with no fee. After that, the borrower might have to pay a fee to extend the rate lock. The extension can be for 90 days to as many as eight months, depending on the lender.

Is a rate lock agreement required?

Executed and enforceable legal documents typically must be in writing. Secondary market investors require written rate lock agreements. Since the regs stop short of specifying a written agreement, many have contacted the CFPB directly.

What is a rate lock agreement?

A mortgage rate lock is an agreement between a borrower and a lender that allows the borrower to lock in the interest rate on a mortgage for a specified time period at the prevailing market interest rate. The lender may charge a lock fee, which the borrower must pay if he or she does not lock the interest rate.

Can you lock in a mortgage rate without a contract?

We DO allow you to lock a rate before you're in contract, but there are some important caveats that you should know as a consumer: Even where you can lock and shop you don't have unlimited time to go into contract, so check with your lender if you choose to lock in advance.

Should I lock or float my mortgage rate today?

If you think rates may fall in the next 30-60 days, ask your lender about a "float-down" option. For what is usually a small fee, you can lock in today's rate, but if rates actually do decline by a given amount, you can re-lock at the new, lower interest rate.

Can you get out of a rate lock?

Yes, you can lock in a mortgage rate with more than one lender. Most lenders don't charge any kind of rate lock fee (unless you're getting an extra-long lock) and there's no cancellation fee. However, look out for credit report and appraisal fees which happen quickly after the rate lock.
