What is PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance)?
PMI is money paid to insure the lender against loss due to foreclosure or loan default. Mortgage insurance is required on conventional loans with less than a 20 percent down payment. FHA mortgage insurance requires a payment of 1.5 percent of the loan amount to be paid at closing, as well as an annual fee of 0.5 percent of the loan amount added to each monthly payment.

What is Lender Paid Mortgage Insurance (LPMI)?
With the LPMI option, the lender pays your mortgage insurance through a higher interest rate, allowing you to avoid mortgage insurance with less than a 20% down payment. Even with the higher interest rate, your total payment is usually less than if you had a lower interest rate with mortgage insurance. You can now enjoy a low payment without having to take out a second mortgage or home equity line of credit. This maximizes your tax-deductible interest and minimizes closing costs.

Lender Paid Mortgage Insurance Loans from Ameristar Mortgage
April 16th, 2008

Lender paid mortgage insurance also enables borrowers which do not have a large down payment to have access to home ownership. Lender-paid mortgage insurance is an approach that makes sense in recasting that expense as an interest expense that is tax-deductible. Lenders typically pass the costs of lending money on to borrowers, and mortgage insurance is one of those costs. Lenders usually require mortgage insurance on low down payment mortgage loans (less than 20%) for protection in the event that the homeowner fails to make monthly payments.
