San Francisco Home Buyer Stories: A Crazy Loan Story!

My wonderful clients who live in Truckee have a believe-it-or-not story to tell about their loan! The couple has been married almost 30 years, and the wife has been using her married name the whole time. The problem is, she never notified Social Security of her name change. When we performed our due diligence, we discovered her name in the social security records didn’t match her name on the loan application. Unfortunately, that was a show stopper for the lender. My poor clients couldn’t find their marriage certificate, so they had to go drive down to San Francisco City Hall, obtain a copy of their marriage license and provide that to the kind people at Social Security in order to fix the problem.

Now you know how painstakingly thorough lenders can be these days!
