Why can't I send a post-dated check?
Due to the accounting requirements for mortgage servicers, payments to our office must be processed upon receipt. Therefore, we are unable to accept a post-dated check.
What can I access and view with the online system?
You will need to create an account using your servicing loan number and your Social Security number. After creating your account, you will be able to view statements and account history, as well as change your mailing address. You may also make one-time payments or set up a reoccurring automated draft. Once the draft is set up, the scheduled start time will be displayed on your dashboard.
Why has my payment changed?
Your payment may change due to different escrow account features. Certain provisions in your loan documents may allow for payment changes. When your payment is scheduled to change, you will receive a notice and explanation of the payment adjustment.
Can I have bi-weekly payments auto debited from my bank account?
If you are interested in setting up auto draft payments, contact us at 800.748.4424. Currently, our system is designed so that it only deducts payments to correspond with the terms set forth in your mortgage. Unless the mortgage provides for bi-weekly payments, we cannot deduct them from your account.
When does my account become delinquent?
The due date for your payments is on your mortgage. Traditionally, monthly mortgage payments are due on the first day of each month. In these cases, a mortgage payment that is not made on the first day is considered past due on the second.
What can I do if I am having a difficult time making my mortgage payments?
Please contact us at 800.748.4424. Our representatives will ask some questions and determine the best course to assist you. Please note all of your options are generally time sensitive. If a representative asks you for further documentation, please send it as soon as possible.
Escrow and Impound Accounts
What is an escrow account, and what are the funds used for?
The funds in your escrow account are strictly designated to fund property taxes, hazard insurance, mortgage insurance or any other property-related assessments. Any excess funds in the account are refunded to you with a scheduled escrow analysis. Escrow funds are held in non-interest-bearing accounts, so PRMI receives no monetary benefit from these funds.
Why am I required to have an escrow account?
Escrow accounts may be required as one of the terms of your mortgage. The reasons for requiring an escrow account are determined through the loan origination process. Please contact us at 800.748.4424 to discuss removing your escrow account.
Is there a way to lower my property tax or insurance premiums?
Insurance premiums and tax assessments are the result of independent relations between homeowners and local county assessors or insurance agents. If you contact your local county assessor, you may find there are discounts available to you. Likewise, you may shop for hazard insurance, or ask your current agent if there are better rates available.
An escrow analysis caused my payment to change. Will this happen every year?
An escrow analysis is performed at least every 12 months to ensure your monthly mortgage payment will be able to fund the projected escrow disbursements.
How do I pay for a shortage on my escrow account?
The escrow shortage may be paid at one time by mailing a separate check in the full amount to PO Box 593, Salt Lake City, UT 84110. Please reference your account number and “Escrow Shortage” on the memo line of the check.
Can the refund from my escrow analysis be applied as a payment or posted to principle instead of sending it to me?
Our policy is to send the escrow refund check directly to the borrower(s) on record.
