We issued a Loan Estimate for a bridge loan to purchase a home to be secured with the purchased property and the applicant's current residence. Due to timing circumstances with the applicant and the sellers, the applicant now wants to expedite the purchase by using an investment account and use the TRID loan to get reimbursed. Can I use the same application and re-disclose the LE as a refinance or home equity purpose?

Can you add force placed insurance to a non-accrual loan that is well collateralized? State laws and the contract allow it for it.
