Should I be concerned? Home buying and Name ChangeI recently closed on my house after getting married in May; I was told to wait on the name change so that it would not delay closing. We started the process in March due to the house being built for us. The mortgage is all in my name due to my husband's credit being too low. At that time I spoke with one lender, but ultimately switched to another who was a better option for closing costs. I got married in May of this year and right before closing in June we lost financing on the house through the second lender due to our marriage license being MIA for 3 weeks which put us past the lock in date. I spoke to the first lender again, who was able to finance but listed me as a single woman. I told him I was married and asked if he needed a copy of the marriage license but he said it was best to leave everything the way it was when he first started the loan process in March. I'm now working on changing my name to my husband's last name and am worried this will negatively impact me considering the marriage license clearly shows we got married in May and closed in August.September 14 2013 - Moses Lake00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
