USDA Mortgage Closings on HOLD Until Funding Has Been Restored

By
Mortgage and Lending with Guaranteed Rate NMLS# 2611 NMLS #151088

Under USDA’s fiscal calendar, annual USDA funding for fiscal year 2011 expired as of September 30, 2011.  Until such time as new funding is authorized, USDA offices will not be able to issue conditional commitments.

Most lenders will continue to originate and process USDA loans.  Actual closings will not occur on these USDA loans until such time as funding is restored and a commitment has been issued by the USDA office.  Loans currently approved with a previous commitment issued may be closed as scheduled and will not be impacted.

Dear Rodney,

More to learn from you as always! Thanks.

You said - Actual closings will not occur on these USDA loans until such time as funding is restored and a commitment has been issued by the USDA office. 

Is that a purchase or just a sale in limbo? How does that work?

Have a happy day -
Lynn

Diane....Things are still ever changing.  USDA funding ends September 30th of each year.

Lynn....Yes, USDA will not issue commitments until it is resolved and a mortgage cannot be fully approved and closed by a lender with one.

Larry.....Same thing happens every year.  

Liz......Its a common occurrence every September.
