What is a Rate Lock Agreement?

A rate lock agreement is a legla document between a lender and borrower that locks in an interest rate for a certain amount of time. The idea behind the lock is to ensure that both parties agree on the interest rates, as well as the terms of repayment before agreeing to any loans.

Rate lock agreemnts are typically used by people who want certainty on their loan repayment amounts. They are commonly seen in mortgages when you buy a house. This agreement provides borrowers with peace of mind and protection from potential increases in mortgage interest rates which fluctuate due to economic conditions.

My practice involves counseling businesses and individuals on a variety of contracts, such as business formation, technology/IP, real estate, leases, and even domestic relations agreements. Much of my practice is dedicated to litigation. As such, I approach contract and transactional work from a litigation perspective by advising clients of the risks involved in failing to develop proper contracts. It takes more than knowledge of the law to be a good lawyer. A good lawyer is honest and forthcoming with clients and has a counseling ethos. And, to me, a good lawyer stands in the shoes of the client when considering how to best serve that client. Whether my client is a business or an individual, I am passionate about helping my clients understand their rights, responsibilities, risks, and possibilities.
