Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Are you within any contingency period for terminating? Are you currently in breach? Has the seller agreed yet to the extension?
Are you online with me?
While you are free to change lenders, you would still need to be able to close on or before the closing date specified in the contract. Otherwise, you would be in breach and subject to the penalties specified in the contract, most likely the forfeiture of your earnest money.
If you are still within a contingency period, a mortgage contingency, for example, you can terminate the agreement and demand a refund of your earnest money.
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (Excellent or Good) so that I am credited for assisting you. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
