Tip: Initialing changes to name variations

Initialing changes in a name variation
Initial below the last few letters of the typed surname. Have the borrower sign their name variation the way they feel is correct. Don't cross anything out. Let the processor do the other work associated with changing the name. However, ask the lender if its okay to sign differently from what is typed in the signature section. The answer will most likely be no, and loan documents will most likely have to be resinged if you sign differently than what is typed. You can also add the name variation of your choice in the signature affidavit and sign using the name variation of your choice on the documents. Do this with the lender's recommendation or you might be looking at a redraw.
