    If you mail your payment, credit for your payment will be given on the day it is received at our lockbox. Please allow sufficient time for the payment to reach us ahead of the due date disclosed on your Note and monthly statement.

    If you pay online, your account will be credited within 24-72 hours of payment, excluding weekends and holidays.

  1. Why did my payment increase?
    If your Note provides for an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM), interest rates and the corresponding payment amounts will change in accordance with the terms of the Note. Additionally, there may have been a change in your escrow payment to cover changes in property taxes and/or insurance.
^ Top
  1. When is my payment considered late?
    Late charges are assessed in accordance with your Note, if payment is not received within the specified number of grace days. It is always a good idea to keep records of payments made including canceled checks or bank account statements.

    Our turnaround time is typically 10 business days or within any applicable state mandated timeframes. If your loan was recently transferred, a payoff quote may take additional time as we need to obtain the necessary loan documents from the prior servicer.

  1. May I send extra money to help payoff my loan?
    Yes. Please note that any amount sent over and above the regular payment will be applied first to any outstanding charges or delinquent payments, and then to principal. Please refer to your Note for specific information on partial prepayments and to verify if there are any prepayment penalties.
^ Top
  1. If I plan to payoff my loan, do I still need to send a regular payment?
    Yes. If the payoff of your loan will occur after your regular payment due date, then you must still submit your regular monthly payment in order to avoid any late charges or penalties.
^ Top
  1. Can SN Servicing Corporation refinance my loan?
    Unfortunately, we cannot help you refinance your loan. We are a loan servicing organization and do not originate loans.
^ Top
  1. When can I expect a refund from my escrow account, once my loan has been paid in full?
    Any escrow refund or other overpayment is mailed 15 days after your loan has been paid in full. Please be sure to provide us with any new mailing address information to ensure receipt of the refund.

Escrow, Insurance and Taxes
  1. Do I need homeowner's insurance?
    For your protection as well as ours, insurance is required on your property. As noted in your Welcome Letter, the conditions of your mortgage require you to maintain a hazard insurance policy and provide us with evidence of coverage. If you have not contacted your insurance representative and asked them to fax over proof of your insurance coverage, please do so immediately.

    The policy must list the correct mortgagee clause information, which includes our address and fax number as shown below, the effective date, and coverage amounts.

    The mortgagee clause must read as follows:

         SN Servicing Corp
         ISAOA ATIMA
         P.O. Box 35
         Eureka, CA 95502

    FAX to SN SERVICING CORPORATION (707) 443-1562

    If we do not receive evidence of acceptable hazard insurance, SN Servicing Corporation has the right to secure insurance coverage on your behalf. This replacement insurance only covers the "unpaid principal balance" of your loan. The coverage is limited to physical damage to the structure. Supplemental coverage, such as liability coverage or personal contents are NOT included in this policy.

    Please be aware that the premiums and the deductible may be higher than on a private policy.

    You may easily and quickly update your homeowner’s insurance information online in the My Loan Info area. To access this password-protected area, you must first register, then just login and select “Update Homeowners Insurance Info.”

  1. What is an escrow/impound account?
    An escrow account is an account set up by a servicer or lender into which the borrower pays money to cover property taxes and/or homeowners' insurance.

    If you had an escrow account with your prior lender, please be certain that any statement received contains an escrow amount in accordance with your experience and expectations and notify us immediately of any discrepancies.
^ Top
  1. Who pays my taxes and/or insurance?
    If you do not have an escrow account (see Q.18), you are responsible for paying your taxes and/or insurance.

    You may request a copy of your year-end tax information online in our My Loan Info area. To access this password-protected area, you must first register, then just login and select “Request Year-End Tax Info.”

    Our turnaround time is typically 10 business days from the time your request is made.
