Odd situation with ING Direct mortgage
I appreciate the advice you have given others in the past and I'm afraid it is my turn to reach out for assistance. I have had a mortgage with ING Direct for 2.5 and we have now decided to sell our existing home and build a new one. To my shock, ING Direct do not provide mortgages for 'new' homes, only homes that are 97% complete. They have stated they will not make exceptions and they will not assist in covering the costs to break my mortgage with them ($5400). I have read through all the documentation we received from them and have reviewed all information on their website and they do not mention this anywhere. Had I known this 2.5 years ago, I would have chosen another lender. Does anyone know if there is anything else I can do to have ING Direct absorb the costs (or at least a portion thereof) of breaking the mortgage so I can actually begin a new mortgage with a real lender?
