Why LUSO home equity?

Need to make home improvements? Cover a tuition bill? Consolidate debt? Borrow against the value in your home to secure the funds you need for these and more. Choose from a first or second position fixed-rate home equity loan or a flexible home equity line of credit (HELOC), a form of revolving credit that you can tap on demand and repay as you go.

What is first or second position home equity?

If you’re still paying down your original mortgage (your “first” mortgage) and you take out a home equity loan or HELOC, that loan takes a “second position” (essentially, a second mortgage). If you own your home or use the loan or line to pay off your mortgage, it’s a “first position.

The minimum monthly payment during the draw period will equal the following: The amount of accrued finance charges on the last day of the billing cycle and will be rounded to the nearest $.01. The minimum monthly payment during the draw period will not reduce the principal that is outstanding on your line of credit. After the draw period ends you will no longer be able to obtain credit advances and must pay the outstanding balance of your line of credit (the “repayment period.”) During the repayment period, payments will be due monthly. The minimum monthly payment will equal the following: The amount of accrued finance charges plus 1/120th of the principal balance outstanding on the last day of the billing cycle, for the last billing cycle in which an advance was made. The minimum payment amount will be rounded to the nearest $.01. The minimum monthly payments may not be sufficient to fully repay the principal that is outstanding on your line of credit by the end of the repayment period. If they are not, you will then be required to pay the entire balance in a single payment. The savings for the HELOC loans is based on lowest available Credit Union APR and assumes your balance remains constant for one year.
