What is the difference between a Home Equity Loan and A Home Equity Line of Credit? 

A Home Equity loan provides the borrower with a lump sum amount that comes with fixed payments and fixed interest during the term of the loan. A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a revolving line of credit that features variable interest rates and, therefore, variable minimum payments. With a HELOC, you pay interest only on the funds you use.

What is the purpose of this type of loan? 

This type of loan can be used to fund home improvements, renovations, updated appliances, fund higher education, refinance high-interest rates or consolidate all debts into one easy monthly payment. As interest is only charged on the amount used, if the expense is lower than expected, you will not be charged interest on the remaining funds.

Is Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) required?

Credit Union ONE does not require additional PMI, but borrowers must maintain their current homeowners' insurance. A Home Equity Line of Credit loan is considered a second mortgage, therefore no additional PMI or escrow account is required.

How can I access my funds?

Members can use their Home Equity Line of Credit via Equiline checks or online transfers. They can also visit their local branch or Contact Us for additional assistance.

Is there a penalty for making pre-payments or paying off my Home Equity Line of Credit early?

Members are not penalized for making additional payments due to the HELOC's recapture clause. The recapture clause will be waived if the member is refinancing and is advancing a minimum of $10,000 new money.

Is the interest I pay on my Home Equity Line of Credit tax deductible? 

The interest you pay may be tax-deductible, depending on how you use the funds and other factors. A tax advisor can provide details and information regarding your specific situation and advance.  

What other restrictions apply to this type of loan? 

Primary residents of Michigan and parts of Ohio including Cuyahoga, Lake, Lucas, Sandusky, Summit, and Wood counties are eligible. Has to be first lien for vacation homes but can be a second for primary residence. Single-family homes, condominiums, and manufactured homes fall under this category. Manufactured homes require an appraisal. Credit Union One will pay for credit reports, flood determinations, tax monitoring, title searches, insurance policies, and mortgage recording. An appraisal will be paid for upfront by the borrower and refunded upon loan closing. All other fees are the responsibility of the borrowers.
