Loan assumptions and Disclosures
This is not a credit decision or a commitment to lend. Loan interest rates are based on current market rates, are subject to pricing adjustments related to several factors including, but not limited to, property type and location, loan amount, loan type, loan-to-value, occupancy type, borrower credit history. Mortgage insurance may be required if loan-to-value (LTV) is higher than 80% which could increase the monthly payment and APR.
No Closing Cost loans are subject to terms and conditions of Fremont Bank's Application Fee Agreement, which lists the specific costs and fees the borrower will not pay. An application fee may be required after a loan application is submitted, which will be refunded as a credit on your Closing Disclosure statement. Application fee is non-refundable if your loan is denied, withdrawn or does not close for any reason. Borrower is responsible for paying all fees and charges imposed by brokers or an existing third party lender (for example, payoff demand statement fee and/or a reconveyance fee) as well as any prepayment penalty imposed by any third party lender or Fremont Bank. Loans with lower nominal interest rates may be available to borrower willing to pay points and fees.
Loans with points and/or fees (Closing Costs) may have a lower nominal interest rate than “No Closing Cost" loans. Discount points are a form of prepaid interest paid up front in exchange for a lower interest rate. The reduced interest rate will only save money over a long term; the longer a borrower plans to live in the home, the better the chance of reaching the "break-even" point. There are a variety of points and fee options, so please ask your loan officer about available programs to help you decide whether paying points is an option for you.
Refinancing to lower your monthly payment may extend the number of monthly payments and/or the total amount paid when compared to your current situation. Other loan programs are also available. If you are a servicemember on active duty, prior to seeking a refinance of your existing mortgage loan, please consult with your legal advisor regarding the loss of any benefits you are entitled to under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act or applicable state law.
