Keith is right: "normal wear and tear" can have many interpretations and sometimes can go to arbitration for definition: I once had a tenant who would shut all water faucets overly tight until he would eventually break all seals and have running water everywhere. I have repaired faucets many times until I finally presented him with a repair bill at which point he paid and the faucet leaks stopped.
I had one woman tenant who would dump her long hair, Bounty paper towels and cat litter in the toilet until it not only wouldn't flush but when clogged, she continued to flush the toilet thinking several flushes would eventually unclog it but instead it would flood over. Like, Duh! that is not wear and tear.
Yes interest rates can be locked. Your best bet for learning more about the particulars about locking interest rates is to contact a mortgage professional whom you trust. If you need a referral, let me know!
