Closing Guarantee – Terms and Conditions

Closing Guarantee – Terms and Conditions                                                

Marketplace Home Mortgage, L.L.C. (“Marketplace”), provides an on-time closing guarantee, subject to the following terms and conditions:   

  • Borrower must present to Marketplace a copy of a fully executed purchase agreement for a specific residential real property located in a state where Marketplace is licensed to originate mortgage loans. The purchase agreement must identify a specific closing date not to occur sooner than thirty (30) calendar days after the date that the purchase agreement is received by Marketplace, and the specified closing date cannot be moved to a sooner date at any time. The purchase agreement must identify no contingencies that extend more than ten (10) calendar days after the purchase agreement is received by Marketplace, except for a contingency that (i) relates to the approval of borrower for financing on application made to Marketplace, or (ii) relates to the borrower selling a primary residence on or before the specified closing date in the purchase agreement. The specified closing date in the purchase agreement must be a day that Marketplace is open for business, excluding specifically all Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays.                       
  • Borrower must fully complete and sign a standard loan application document with Marketplace not more than sixty (60) calendar days prior to the date that the purchase agreement is received by Marketplace for a first lien position mortgage loan on the residential real property identified in the purchase agreement. The specific residential real property cannot change prior to the specified closing date in the purchase agreement. The application and all supporting documentation, whether submitted with the application or at any other time, cannot contain any fraudulent or misleading information or representations. Once the completed and signed application is received by Marketplace, there cannot be any change in borrower’s employment or any other change in borrower’s loan qualifying information that has an adverse effect on borrower’s qualifying eligibility, in Marketplace’s sole discretion. No assignment of the purchase agreement or substitute borrower is eligible for this offer.                                       
  • Borrower must return to Marketplace all required signed disclosures and a signed Intent to Proceed document within three (3) business days after the purchase agreement is received by Marketplace. Borrower must return to Marketplace the signed lock agreement to lock an interest rate with Marketplace not less than fifteen (15) calendar days before the specified closing date in the purchase agreement.                                                        
  • No change in loan terms or loan product may occur after the borrower returns to Marketplace the signed lock agreement. Borrower must completely satisfy all loan program requirements and conditions for loan approval at least eight (8) business days prior to the specified closing date in the purchase agreement.
  • Marketplace’s offer of an on-time closing guarantee is void if closing is delayed beyond the specified closing date in the purchase agreement first delivered to Marketplace due to the acts or omissions of either the seller or borrower; the acts, omissions, negligence or malfeasance of another party not the seller, the borrower or Marketplace; any delay by a government agency in delivering any item or approval necessary for closing; or any natural disaster or an extraordinary event or circumstance beyond the control of the parties (including, among others, weather or catastrophic event, war, strike, riot, crime, or act of terrorism). Likewise, the offer of an on-time closing guarantee is void if, at least five (5) days prior to the specified closing date in the purchase agreement, the appraised value of the real property identified in the purchase agreement does not equal or exceed the sales price identified in the purchase agreement, or if any required repairs or other work identified in the appraisal is not complete. Further, the on-time closing guarantee is void if a contingency for the sale of borrower’s primary residence is not clear prior to or at the closing specified in the purchase agreement.
  •  The offer is void where prohibited by applicable law or investor requirements. The offer is also void in the event that due to re-disclosure federal or state regulatory requirements require any waiting period prior to closing that extends beyond the specified closing date in the purchase agreement. The offer is void if the real property identified in the purchase agreement is deemed to be located in a flood zone and FEMA does not provide flood insurance for the zone or the real property.                                                                                          
  • Marketplace reserves the right to amend or terminate its on-time closing guarantee at any time, with or without notice; however, a borrower remains eligible to receive the guarantee available on the date that Marketplace has received both (i) a fully executed purchase agreement for a specific residential real property located in a state where Marketplace is licensed to originate mortgage loans, and (ii) a fully complete and sign a standard loan application document. Other restrictions may apply, so please contact Marketplace for specific details at the time of submitting the loan application and/or purchase agreement.
