The sellers agent should be in communication wth the buyers agent (or buyers) regarding this very important stage in the process. Once commitment is given by the bank, all parties should be made aware that all is well, or not well. What is NOT guarenteed is a copy of the financing commitment being given to the seller from the buyers side. This would only be required if it were negotiated upfront in the original offer, or later in a purchase and sales agreement. The commitment usually has some basic "conditions" on them that a buyer would have to furthrer satisfy for the bank to actually close on the loan. Its in the best interest of the seller to know what they are, but you are not entitled to a copy of the commitment letter unless agreed upon upfront. As a seller what you really can take from this is, if a buyer is willing to continue with the deal after the financing commitment date then they are confident any remaining conditions on that letter will be met by the closing. Once the date passes, the buyers are no longer provided an "out" of the deal and deposits returned for lack of financing.
