A risk a lender takes that a mortgagor may not lock in the interest rate for the grace period between drawing up the mortgage and the closing, hoping that the interest rate will fall before the closing. If it happens, the borrower gets a better deal, and the lender loses the higher gain. Also known as reverse price risk.
