Legal Lines – Question of the Month
 
With the help of McClelland & Anderson, we are taking the most recently asked questions from our legal hotline and putting them in E-news. We will be featuring a different question each issue.
 
QUESTION:
I represent the seller. My client received multiple offers and based his choice in large part on the fact that the buyer had submitted a pre-approval letter from a particular lender. I just discovered that the buyer has applied for a mortgage from a different lender. Can she do that?
 
ANSWER:

Yes. The fact that a buyer presents a pre-approval letter from one lender does not obligate the buyer to use that lender unless the purchase contract explicitly says so. Buyers often switch lenders and are ordinarily free to do so as long as they meet the time deadlines in the purchase contract.
