Q: Are you my lawyer that handles negotiations with the bank or lender?
A: No, we do not handle actual negotiations of the terms of your mortgage commitment or loan. Although we would very much like to, we understand that when a person needs money to purchase a home they usually have little to no choice. They either agree to the loan or refuse to take it outright. Of course if you insist on negotiating, or have a large portfolio, then let us know.
Most lenders will not alter their terms of a loan for a single residential purchase by an individual seeking to be a homeowner. The reality is that these documents have been drafted with meticulous precision by a team of lawyers to protect the lender and quite frankly your business is probably not serious enough to warrant a contract modification.
If we thought it could make a dfference, we would zealously negotiate on your behalf, but unless you have a lot of business to offer such as a large portfolio, it is usually a take it or leave it situation. Keep your hard earned money and find a better financing deal if possible.
Q: If you do not typically handle negotiations, what do you do?
A: We provide an explanation of the documents that you will eventually sign with your lender to finance your home purchase. These documents are complicated and may contain words or legal concepts that you are unfamiliar with. There is no shame in this, but to sign a long-term loan commitment you do not fully understand defies common sense. Basically, we simplify the loan document you are about to sign so you better understand it and can make an informed decision. We also advise you on your legal rights and risks, and answer any questions you may have.
Q: English is not my first language, do you provide an explanation in a foreign language?
A: Yes, once we have reviewed your loan documents and prepared an explanation in plain English we can have this written explanation translated in a language of your choice for an additional fee.
Are you worried you do not understand your mortgage documents for the purchase of your home?
