Purchase or Refinance? And Why? Is the loan for a primary residence or other type of property. Essentially, you just notify the lender that you wish to cancel and its over. HOWEVER, if the loan is related to a purchase transaction, you could end up breaching the contract and that could have penalties, or you could end up owing damages to the seller for the breach. If it is a refinance, you could be responsible to the lender for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred during the loan process. Some states allow a lender to contract with a borrower. If your state allows this and there are penalties for you canceling after approval, you could also be responsible for those penalties. If you did not enter into such an agreement most, if not all states allow you to cancel the loan before the loan papers are signed without penalty. On a refinance, if the property is not your primary residence, then once you sign the loan documents, it is too late to cancel. On a primary residence refinance, there is a three 'business day' waiting period called a rescission period, that allows you to cancel without penalty.

Simple. Just don't sign. If it is a refinance, no issues. You may need to pay for the appraisal if you haven't already. If it is a purchase, there may be ramifications from the sellers side for breach of contract. Talk to your agent. I lend in WI MN IA SD ND. Find me at - Cambria Mortgage, NMLS 274132
