You are best served by seeking the advise of a mortgage professional to whom you have been referred. Perhaps a family member, friend or work associate is a homeower who is willing to make an introduction to the mortgage professional that offered outstanding service. Good luck.
Rate lock confirmations start as a matter of trust between your mortgage professional and you. The confirmation of that trusted conversation and your instruction to lock your rate is confirmed by loan disclosures that are furnished to you for your review, signature and return. You did not mention if you are in receipt of disclosures. If so, the rate lock confirmation would be included. If you are not in receitp, it seems strange that your file is under review but you would have not yet received disclosures for a process that began in late November. I urge you to become very proactive with your inquiries.
Part time? That changes the equation. It is unlikely your part time income will be recognized after only 4 months employment. What is the prospect of lowering your purchase target price that will allow lending based only on your husband's income?
I agree with Greg's response. You will need to produce a pay stub evidencing at least 30 days of pay from full time employment at your current job as an underwriting condition. With 4 months on the job, you have met this time requirement. Of course, your entire borrower profile, inclusive of credit scores and assets will be reviewed for both you and your husband. Good luck
