Conversion to Fixed Rate
Loans have a conversion feature whereby the interest rate may be converted to a 7- or 10-year fixed rate loan on any rate change date beginning with the first day of the second loan year and ending on the first day of the third month prior to maturity, provided the loan has not been delinquent during the previous 12 months and the Borrower is not in default under any loan document.
- No prepayment penalty charged at the time the SARM converts to a Fixed Rate.
- Minimal re-underwriting; Lender determines that the current Net Cash Flow can support the new
- No increase in the loan amount; loan may be eligible for a Supplemental Loan.
After a one-year lock-out period, loans may be voluntarily prepaid. Lender selects the option of a declining prepayment premium or a 1% prepayment premium. No prepayment premium required during
the last 3 months of the loan term. When refinancing into a fixed-rate product with Fannie Mae, the prepayment premium may be waived under certain conditions.
