PMI removal will lower your mortgage paymentPrivate Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is a supplemental insurance policy that most lenders ask homebuyers to purchase when the amount being loaned to the buyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate. Oftentimes, this extra payment is folded into the monthly mortgage payment and is quickly forgotten. PMI is unnecessary when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - goes below the 80% mark, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the United States Congress implemented a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) that requires lenders to dismiss the PMI payments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.
