Rate Lock Information
Rate Lock Information

A rate lock provides you the opportunity to secure the interest rate and term of your mortgage application.  A rate lock offers peace of mind in the event of rate fluctuations that may occur during the processing of your loan.  

 
Rate Lock Period
  • The standard rate lock-in period is 60 days.
  • A fully executed purchase agreement identifying a property for purchase is required on purchase transactions.
  • Rate lock requests may be made during the Real Estate Lending department's regular business hours which include 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Saturday. 
 
Rate Lock Impact Factors 
 
A change in your loan characteristics, including but not limited to the following may cause the interest rate and, if applicable, any discount points to be modified:
  • The loan-to-value or sales price of your property increases
  • The requested loan type or term changes
  • The property type changes
  • Your credit score decreases or the occupancy plans for the property change
  • You request a loan amount increase
  • A negative change in your monthly income or other financial sources
