Won't work. The lenders specifically say that no modifications to the printed contract will be allowed. You take it or leave it --- they won't accept any modifications proposed by you. Period.

"you intend to move to your new property within 30 days".... well yes I do intend to do so, but with my luck I could get fired or demoted the day after signing that 1003 form
