FHA Mortgage Insurance
Mortgage insurance is a policy that protects lenders against losses that result
from defaults on home mortgages. FHA loans require mortgage insurance primarily
for borrowers making a down payment of less than 20 percent.
Mortgage insurance is charged to the homeowner each month at the rate of .55%
for above 95% LTV and .50% at or below 95% LTV. FHA also charges an upfront
mortgage insurance premium of 1.75 percent.
FHA's monthly mortgage insurance payments will be automatically terminated
when these conditions occur:
mortgages with terms 15 years and less and with Loan to Value ratios 90 percent
and greater, annual premiums will be canceled when the Loan to Value ratio
reaches 78 percent regardless of the amount of time the mortgagor has paid the
mortgages with terms more than 15 years, the annual mortgage insurance premiums
will be canceled when the Loan to Value ratio reaches 78 percent, provided the
mortgagor has paid the annual premium for at least 5 years.
Mortgages with terms 15 years and less and with Loan to Value ratios of 89.99
percent and less will not be charged annual mortgage insurance premiums.
