Mortgage Rate Error on Documents

Has anyone experienced an issue when there has been an error in their mortgage documents. When we signed the paperwork the mortgage rate input was 1.22% instead of 1.77%. The broker is now asking us to resign the documents at the higher rate. Is this something we have to do? Can the bank do anything now that we signed the papers?

I doubt many had such an error, I would speak to your Real Estate Lawyer.

Hmm is there even a rate close to 1.22% available right now?

What paper did you sign?

Did it guarantee the lower of the rate quoted or the rate at the time of closing?

Was it the mortgage document and if so is there a clause that allows for a rate adjustment?

In which document is the 1.22% mentioned? Is it on the mortgage commitment letter?
