PRIVATE MORTGAGE INSURANCE (PMI)

PRIVATE MORTGAGE INSURANCE (PMI)

FEDERAL LAW ON MORTGAGE INSURANCE could save you money

QUESTION: Did you know Private Mortgage Insurance might be cancelable with 20% home equity?

If you put less than 20 percent down on a home mortgage, lenders often require you to have Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). PMI protects the lender if you default on the loan. The Homeowners Protection Act of 1998 establishes rules for automatic termination and borrower cancellation of PMI on home mortgages. These protections apply to certain home mortgages signed on or after July 29, 1999 for the purchase, initial construction, or refinance of a single-family home. These protections do not apply to government insured FHA or VA loans or to loans with lender paid PMI.

For home mortgages signed on or after July 29, 1999, the Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) requires automatic termination upon reaching 22 percent home equity (based on the original property value). Further, it is cancelable when you reach 20 percent equity in your home based on the original property value, if your mortgage payments are current.

One exception is if your loan is "high-risk”. Another is if you have not been current on your payments within the year before the time for termination or cancellation. A third is if you have other liens on your property. For these loans, your PMI may continue. Ask your lender or the company that collects your payments for more information about these requirements.

If you signed your mortgage before July 29, 1999, you can ask to have the PMI canceled once you exceed 20 percent equity in your home. However, federal law does not require your lender or the company that collects your payments to cancel the insurance.

On a $100,000 loan with 10 percent down ($10,000), PMI might cost you $40 a month. If you can cancel the PMI, you can save $480 a year and many thousands of dollars over the loan. Check your annual escrow account statement or call your lender to find out exactly how much PMI is costing you each year.

Some states may have laws that apply to early termination or cancellation of PMI - even if you signed your mortgage before July 29, 1999. Call your state consumer protection agency for more information about your state's rules.

Contact your lender or mortgage servicer to learn whether you are paying PMI. If you are, ask how about termination or canceling.

Additional Law Provisions
  • Law requires new buyers be told about PMI termination and cancellation at closing and once a year.
  • Mortgage servicers' must provide a telephone number for all their mortgage borrowers to call for information about termination and cancellation of PMI.
  • Even though the law's termination and cancellation rights do not cover loans that were signed before July 29, 1999, or loans with lender-paid PMI signed on any date, lenders or mortgage servicers must tell borrowers about the termination or cancellation rights they may otherwise have under those loans (such as rights established by the contract or state law).
