Original wet-ink documents must be signed and returned to our offices no later than the date of closing. Additionally, a missing signature, initial, improper document date, or improper notarization would nullify the closing and require and re-scheduling of the closing date; the result of which may jeopardize the borrower’s timely performance under the terms of their loan commitment put them at risk of losing their interest rate lock.
