USDA: Conditional Commitments Required Before Closing




This is a reminder to all USDA approved lenders that closing USDA single family housing guaranteed loans prior to receipt of a Conditional Commitment from the Agency is a violation of the regulation found at 7 CFR 3555, section 3555.107 (f). Closing a loan prior to obtaining a Conditional Commitment from the Agency can render that loan submission ineligible for a Loan Note Guarantee, and it could affect the lender's approval status to participate in the program.
