Additional Notes

Complaint: My fiance and I are currently looking for a house and we contacted Jody W***** at Somerset Trust Company in Fishertown about a mortgage. We contacted her around February 22, 2016 for help setting up a mortgage and seeing what we qualify for as far as loans go. She asked for our pay stubs and said she would have "her" run them. "Her" was a lady at another office who Jody never gave a name to. She never called us the rest of the week. SO on the following Monday, February 29, 2016, I called her again to get our information. We then met with her to discuss everything. She never gave us the amount we were eligible for but kept saying our payments would be around $750 a month. We continued to look for houses and found a few we wanted to view with our Realtor, who needed our pre-approval paper, which Jody never gave us. So I called Jody again on March 22, 2016 and asked for this information. She then told me that the first time "they" ran our credit, "they" messed it up. Not once did she tell us this in February or the beginning of March. So I asked her to please fix this and send me the email with our approval amount. I have not heard from her since then. It is now March 29, 2016.

Desired Settlement: We would like our correct paper work, with the amount we are eligible to receive without our credit being dropped. Each time "they" check it, it is lowered. It is not our fault "they" messed it up.

Business Response:

RE: ID#********

To Whom It May Concern:

Customer came in on February 29,2016 for a mortgage pre-qualification. A pre-qualification is a request for a preliminary determination on the amount of credit for which an applicant would likely qualify. It is not a commitment. I had told them the amount they would likely qualify for. I reviewed the paperwork and I realized we made a mistake. I called her and made her aware of it. I told her the new amount they would likely qualify for. He came to the Bedford office to talk about his options. After a long discussion he said he wanted to wait. So when he left, I told him to tell her and he said he would. She called around the last week in March to see what they would qualify for in an amount for the loan. I told her I talked to him about all this as he had some concerns, and he told me he would discuss them with her. We will send a letter to the customers confirming the amount that they likely qualify for, and for their records.
