I was unfortunatley drawn to suntrust for a new mortgage on a home we were interested in buying. With a closing date in the way distant (3 mos as requested by the sellers), all was well. 1 month before closing, we had delivered all of the items that were required for the underwriters to proceed and the closing date and time had been settled as the date recommended by suntrust. Based on their information, we gave our notice to our apartment rental and scheduled movers. Unfortunately for us, the closing date came and went. We had to leave our apartment as they had rented out to someone else. We had no place to keep our furniture and had no place to stay. We are almost a week into this and there is still no news from them. We are continuing to pay for a hotel and storage fees. Excuses of overbooked underwriters is no longer acceptable to me. Managers won't return a call and are apparently fine with everyone else receiving my wrath. "dream house and good rates are too good to be true" should be their new motto.
We refinanced our home with suntrust bank. A bank representative suggested we set up an account (checking/savings) that the mortgage payments could be drawn from. This worked great until they changed the rules of the account and it no longer had no minimum balances or charges associated with it. According to the bank, we were notified on one of our statements, but like many people we do not read all the print on every statement we get. We lost several hundred dollars before we caught what was happening. The banks position was "we are sorry but there is nothing we can do about it. We cancelled the account and now we pay by check each month.
I never knew that their would be a worse Bank than Bank Of America but long behold Suntrust is the worse one ever! There overdrafts fees are absolutely ridiculous. The Bank is a joke! The rude employees are a joke, the Managers are a joke, the Supervisors are a joke. I wouldn't advise anyone to go there! Horrific.
