Home Equity Line Of Credit

The HTML to link to this page
 

A home equity line of credit is a credit line against an owner's home equity. Based on credit-worthiness, lenders may approve up to 80% of the appraised value of the home minus any mortgage owed, as a home equity line of credit at variable interest rates. A large initial draw is allowed from the home equity line of credit. The lender issues checks or a credit card for home equity line of credit withdrawals. The draw period for a home equity line of credit is usually 5, 10, or 15 years. A home equity line of credit may incur application, title search, appraisal, attorney, points, and participation fees. Being that the borrower's house is the collateral in a home equity line of credit, it may be at risk if the borrower miss repayments. Truth in Lending Act allows a borrower to cancel a home equity line of credit within the first three days for a full refund of fees paid.
