My mortgage came up for renewal at the beginning of the month.  I contacted a Mortgage Broker who found me a GREAT deal, thru a different lender.   Everything was going along smoothly~until my bank decided they wouldn't accept part of the agreement.  Well, that's business, I understand that.  But I don't understand them not getting back to my Notary until 20 minutes or so before the close of the business day, the day before a 4 day long weekend.  Which added all kinds of stress and many $$$ of interest and extra payments for me.

The other day I received a letter from my bank, stating they'd paid out my mortgage.  Apparently I'd overpaid, and they'd refunded the 14 cents to my account!  Flippin' bank.  Their dithering around cost me $2200, but thanks for the 14 cents.  And yes, I'm in the process of changing banks...
