What It Means
The name affidavit may include maiden name, married name, other names used by the borrower, and it includes all variations of the names that appear in other documents. The purpose of the Name Affidavit is to eliminate the possibility that the borrower may later claim that he/she is not the person named in the document and is not bound by the loan or liability. The Name Affidavit is usually part of the closing documents that are signed by the borrowers. This document is generally combined with Signature Affidavit.
