The loan commitment period is the time frame within which a buyer is expected to get his mortgage or other financing in order, after which a buyer cannot simply walk away from the deal. If the buyer fails to obtain a mortgage (by no fault of their own), they may be able to get out of the contract before the expiration of the loan commitment period, often referred to as the loan contingency date.
