They both are in the position to know your situation and answer your questions.
I tell my clients, that once we are in Escrow, everyone has a vested interest in closing this deal. Use that to your advantage.
If you need more advice, we're here.
Frank Mandujano, Loan officer with Greatland Mortgage Corp. If the loan does not close timely, you may be charged a per diem (daily charge of $100 or $50.00) if you are not able to get an extension. Also, you may be able to disregard this home and look for another.

There may be other solutions. Find out from your loan officer and let the person know that you need to get an answer right away.
