A. A mortgage closing refers to the finalizing of the purchase agreement of the mortgage loan.
A. The time required to close a mortgage may vary. Once a borrower has been approved for a mortgage program, closing takes place after 45 to 60 days.
A. The prospective homebuyer, the seller of the property, and the lender are present at the closing of the loan. If the services of attorneys were retained during the application and approval of the loan, they need to be present at the closing. At the closing, the relevant documents are reviewed and signed. The lender offers the check to the buyer for the mortgage. The seller hands over the keys to the house to the buyer. The buyer receives the title to the property at the closing.
A. Mortgage closing costs are the various kinds of payments that have to be made when the purchase of the loan is finalized. The costs may not be the same for all states.
A. A mortgage closing cost comprises several components. Some of the costs are decided by the law of the land, a part of the cost is determined by the lender and others are characteristic of the region.
A. A typical mortgage closing cost consists of the loan origination fee, title insurance, escrow deposits for taxes, points and private mortgage insurance (see Q 17), if applicable.
A. The origination fee is charged for services rendered in making the application for the loan and processing it. It includes the fees of the lenders and brokers involved in the process.
A. The payment of the title insurance fee grants protection to the lender or borrower from a possible event of a third party trying to claim ownership of the concerned property by producing a deed.
A. Mortgage companies provide escrow services for the loans. If a borrower pays the escrow deposits at the time of closing the loan, the monthly mortgage payments take care of the municipal, property and insurance taxes. An escrow deposit has to be paid while refinancing a mortgage, as well.
A. You may pay points at the time of closing the mortgage to reduce the interests incurred. One point constitutes 1% of the principal. The greater the number of points availed, the lesser is the interest rate. Paying for more points may increase the closing costs by a few thousand dollars. However, the scheme will ensure a greater saving, in the end. If you plan to take up a property for a long time, it makes sense to invest in points.
A. A proof of the homeowner insurance has to be furnished before the closing of the mortgage loan. An insurance coverage for one year has to be paid.
A. Homeowner insurance policy covers any kind of damage to the property and the possessions within it from accidents. On the other hand, a private mortgage is required if the borrower pays less than 20% down payment. This protects the mortgage lender if the client defaults on the monthly payments.
A. The borrower will have to pay closing costs every time he closes a deal with the lending institution. These costs are required to process the new application. The closing costs cover other items related to the closing of the fresh deal.
A. If a borrower has an existing mortgage and want a further refinancing program for the same property, the lender may require the property owner to make monthly mortgage payments for a period of at least 12 months before allowing the refinancing. This is called seasoning. The lender wants to ensure that the borrower is capable of making regular payments.
