  • You may not change the loan program or down-payment amount during the loan process.

  • All information listed on your loan application must be accurate and free of errors or omissions.

  • The closing may not be delayed by the seller or a third party, such as a real estate attorney or title company, failure to obtain a homeowner's insurance policy, flood zone determinations, inclement weather, a natural disaster, or other emergency outside of FAIRWINDS' control, etc.

You must close and fund the loan with FAIRWINDS Credit Union to receive the $5,000 credit toward your closing costs, $3,000 towards the buyer, and $2,000 towards the seller.
