Am I Supposed to Lock My Rate After I Receive My Loan Approval?
No. The type of your mortgage transaction will dictate the latest you can lock your rate. If you are:
Purchasing you’ll need to lock your rate before the underwriter can clear your loan to close.
Refinancing you’ll have to lock your rate prior to submitting the loan to the underwriter.
