Do I have options? Mortgage Broker negligance cost me $2000 at closing!I am writing this seeking advice on what to do concerning Alpine Mortgage, after they lost $2000 at the closing of my house. The broker admits that he screwed up and never bothered to look at the terms of my loan until closing. We had, on his recommendation, got $6000 from sellers in closing costs. At signing he told us we were going to lose $2000 of it. Here is the story.My Wife and I had been looking to purchase a house for almost a year. We found a duplex that we liked and after talking with the seller found out it would need enough repairs that we would have to get a 203k rehab loan. At first the seller was not interested in us and wanted a cash buyer, but our real estate agent convinced them we could get it done quickly.Originally when we shopped for a loan we were looking at standard FHA, so when we needed a 203K our options were limited among lenders. We ended up going with Alpine Mortgage here in Eugene, OR. We discussed the rate options and closing costs. We had already asked the seller to pay closing costs we just needed to know how much. The rates were explained such that we knew we could either get a lower rate (4.125 at the time) and have to "buy it" (pay extra to get rate), or we could get a higher rate (4.25) and get a credit from lender for $2000. Since seller agreed to pay closing costs, which could include the buy down we opted for, we wanted the lower rate and asked seller for $6000 which they agreed to. This was a floating rate so I knew the terms could fluctuate.December 21 2011 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
