Tips for Success: Cancelling Loans in the Commitment System

When a locked loan becomes inactive, you must cancel the lock in Minnesota Housing's commitment system. Examples of reasons to cancel:
  • Loan is denied
  • Borrower withdraws application
  • Income eligibility
  • Property falls through
  • Closing exceeds 90 days
The Homeownership System Guide provides guidance on how to complete the cancellation process.
