If I am no longer able to keep my home, what are my options? Click to open answer

Full Payoff

A borrower who has equity (property value is higher than the total amount owed) in their property, has the option to list their property for sale and payoff the loan in full out of the proceeds of the sale, for a release of lien and full satisfaction of the debt.

Short Sale

In instances where a borrower owes more on their loan than the fair market value of the property (Negative Equity), a short sale of the home may be an option. As part of this program, the borrower reaches an agreement to sell the property at market value, but less than the mortgage payoff, contingent on the mortgage company agreeing to release the lien for less than the remaining balance.

  • Eliminate the mortgage debt
  • Start repairing your credit sooner than if you went through a foreclosure
  • Move out on your own terms and into a more affordable home
  • Relocation assistance funds may be available

Please note that there may be tax implications for borrowers completing a short sale. Please consult your tax advisor for specific information.

What is foreclosure? Click to open answer

Foreclosure is the legal process where a mortgage company obtains ownership of a property due to the homeowner’s failure to meet the requirements or terms of the mortgage contract (i.e., repossess the property). A foreclosure can occur when the homeowner fails to make payments, defaults, or otherwise violated the terms of the mortgage contract.

Foreclosure proceedings vary from state to state, but often include notification to the borrowers, public notification & eventually the auction or sale of the property. Potential impact to a borrower may include:

  • Stress and uncertainty regarding the home
  • Negative credit impact
  • Increase in total amount owed due to foreclosure fees and costs which are the responsibility of the borrower
  • Loss of potential relocation assistance
  • Eviction proceedings

It is critical for the borrower to communicate with the mortgage company to determine the best available options. There are a variety of workout options prior to or during a foreclosure that may help the borrower retain their home or minimize the potential negative impacts of a foreclosure process.

Escrow Account FAQs

Why am I required to have an escrow account? Click to open answer

An escrow account may be required under the terms of your mortgage. Whether an escrow account is required can depend on the mortgage type, amount of equity, and lender requirements at origination. Having your taxes and insurance payments managed by the mortgage company is a convenient and effective way for you to pay an equal amount each month into the escrow account to cover annual costs associated with property taxes and insurance instead of paying them in a lump sum all at once. Please contact us at (800) 748-4424 with any questions regarding your escrow account.

What is the mortgagee clause for PRMI that my homeowner’s insurance company should have on file? Click to open answer

How do I pay for a shortage on my escrow account? Click to open answer

The escrow shortage may be paid by phone, online or by mailing a separate check to PO Box 593, Salt Lake City, UT 84110. Please reference your account number and “Escrow Shortage” on the memo line of the check. If you are unable to pay the full shortage amount, please contact our customer service department for options.

What is an escrow account, and what are the funds used for? Click to open answer

An escrow account is a special account used to hold the portion of your monthly payment used to pay property taxes and insurance. The funds in your escrow account are strictly designated to fund property taxes, hazard insurance, mortgage insurance or any other property-related assessments. Any excess funds in the account are refunded to you with a scheduled escrow analysis. Escrow funds are held in non-interest-bearing accounts, so PRMI receives no monetary benefit from these funds.

An escrow analysis was recently completed on my account and has caused my payment to change. Will this happen every year? Click to open answer

An escrow analysis is performed once per year to ensure your monthly mortgage payment will be sufficient to fund the projected escrow disbursements. The escrow amount that is collected as part of your monthly payment is based on the cost of your insurance and taxes. Insurance premiums can fluctuate from year to year based on rates, coverage, and insurance carrier. Property taxes can fluctuate as well depending on property value and county/municipality tax rates and fees. Changes to insurance premiums and property taxes can result in changes to your escrow and monthly payment.

Is there a way to lower my property tax or insurance premiums? Click to open answer

Insurance premiums and tax assessments are established by the homeowner’s insurance company and taxing authority. Contact your local taxing authority regarding options to reduce property tax assessments or discounts that may be available to you. Similarly, you may shop for hazard insurance, or ask your current agent if there are better rates available.

Can the overage refund from my escrow analysis be applied as a payment or posted to principal balance instead of sending it to me? Click to open answer

PRMI policy is to send the escrow refund check directly to the borrower(s) on record. We do allow extra funds to be applied to the account through the payment methods listed under the Servicing FAQ section for how to make a payment.
