How a holder of the mortgage payments on their mortgage PMI?

Deal Score0

It seems to me that the PMI is very expensive for the owner, especially me as a perfect credit and source of funding for a new mortgage if I lose my job (my job is very safe). Please any suggestions on how to distribute the PMI by the mortgage bank.

    You can’t get PMI waived. The only way not to have PMI added to your Mortgage is to put 20% down on the home. You can also get PMI removed once you pay down the principal of the mortgage to a point where there is 20% equity.

    If you already have the mortgage, you could threaten to switch the loan to a different lender. If you are just getting the loan, negotiate. Tell them you won’t accept a loan that has PMI. Anything can be negotiated.

    I had the same problem until I contacted a law firm because a real estate investor had told me there were predatory lender laws broken…. he helped me out and i even got a mortgage payment reduction.

    PMI protects the lender in case your loan goes into default. The only way to have it removed is when you owe less than 80% of your home’s value.

    PMI is in place to protect the bank from the foreclosure process. Essentially your paying the bank upfront for the costs associated with foreclosure. By some calculation they figure you more likely wont go into foreclosure after 80% of your loan is paid. Either that or you have already paid enough.

    You could get PMI dropped by getting an up to date appraisal done on your home. If your home has appreciated in value (not likely) beyond the 20% of your loan you could negotiate getting the PMI dropped. Either that or put more money down on your loan.

    Unless you bring 20% down to the table, you are paying PMI. Your credit score and arrogance does nothing here.

    You cannot.
    Unless you put 20% down
    There is no way in heck a lender in this day and age of mortgage debacles that is going to forego PMI.
    It would never make it past underwriting.
