    Mortgage lender has delayed closing 4 times. Application was made the 1st of November,2012 and has failed to go through for various reasons on the part of the lender. Latest closing was scheduled for May 24,2013 and was cancelled hours before signing due to need to verify property taxes. Now the 2.5% rate lock has expired and lender wants a higher rate. What recourse do I have and where should I file complaints?
