Oddly, the bank is making us jump through all sorts of odd hoops before they will release the final 10% of funds to the builder. A lot of the forms make sense (final inspection sheet, homeowner’s insurance), but several others had me scratching my head at first since we were basically re-applying for our loan. Remember that our loan automatically converts from a construction loan to fixed 30 year. The re-application has to do with an automatic interest rate reduction that is part of the product, so it’s worth the hassle.
