Mortgage Insurance

2 Replies

I had to refi to get rid of mortgage insurance after my property increased in value. 

The only option with my existing lender/mortgage at that time was to pay down the mortgage to a specified amount. They wouldn't entertain market increase in property value as a reason to adjust LTV.

I would ask your lender what their conditions are. Good luck. 

Refi out into something with less than 80% LTV. If you put down less than 10% MIP is for the life of the loan, period. If you put down 10% or more, 11 years til MIP goes away.
