Closing costs are part of the costs of setting up a home equity loan or home equity line of credit (HELOC). They're similar in nature to the closing costs you pay when you get a mortgage. Closing costs can include such things as:
- A fee for property appraisal
- An application fee
- Attorney's fees
- Title search
- Mortgage preparation and filing fees (dependent on municipality)
- Property and title insurance
According to LendingTree.com, these fees can run between two and five percent of the loan.
Thus, closing costs on a $50,000 HELOC would be between $1,000 and $2,500 depending on your location, loan to value ratio, and local laws.
There are no application fees or closing costs on a Home Equity Loan or Home Equity Line of Credit from Hanscom FCU. However, if a discharge is requested within 24 months of closing, the member must reimburse Hanscom FCU for all closing costs.
