Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, many borrowers choose to refinance their ARM to a fixed-rate mortgage before the adjustable period begins to lock in a stable interest rate and predictable monthly payments.

 

Refinance

Consider your financial situation, how long you plan to stay in the home, and your risk tolerance for potential interest rate changes. ARMs can be a good choice if you plan to sell or refinance before the adjustable period begins or expect interest rates to remain stable or decline.
Some ARMs may have prepayment penalties, but People Driven Credit Union does not. You can refinance or pay off your Adjustable Rate Mortgage with PDCU early without any prepayment penalties.
Yes, ARMs often have caps that limit how much the interest rate can increase at each adjustment period and over the life of the loan. These caps provide some protection against large payment increases.
ARM interest rates adjust based on a specific index (such as the Treasury index) plus a margin set by the lender. When the index rate changes, the interest rate on your loan adjusts accordingly.
The main risk with an ARM loan is that your monthly payments can increase if interest rates rise. Understanding the potential for payment changes is important to ensure that you can afford higher payments if the rate adjusts upward.
ARMs typically offer lower initial interest rates compared to fixed-rate mortgages, which can lead to lower initial monthly payments. This can be beneficial if you plan to sell or refinance before the adjustable period begins.
The initial period is when the interest rate on an ARM is fixed. After this period, the rate adjusts at regular intervals. For example, a 7/1 ARM has a fixed rate for the first seven years and then adjusts once every 12 months.
ARMs are often described with two numbers, such as 5/5, 7/1, or 10/1. The first number indicates the initial fixed-rate period (in years), and the second number indicates how often the rate will adjust after the initial period (in years).
Unlike a fixed-rate mortgage, where the interest rate remains constant throughout the loan term, an Adjustable Rate Mortgage has an interest rate that adjusts periodically. This means your monthly payments can increase or decrease over time based on changes in the interest rate.

SECURITY AGREEMENT

Security Interest; PLEDGE OF SHARES; Statutory Lien; Set-off; Administrative Freeze: To secure the payment of this loan and all expenditures incurred by the credit union in connection with this loan: (a) You grant the Credit Union a security interest in the property described on Page 1 of this document (“Collateral”). The security interest includes all increases, substitutions and additions to the secured property, proceeds from any insurance on the secured property and all earnings received from the secured property. The security interest also includes all accessions. Accessions are things which are attached to or installed in the property now or in the future. The security interest also includes any replacements for the property which you buy within 10 days of the loan or any extensions, renewals or refinancing of the loan. If the value of the property declines, you promise to give us more security if asked to do so. You also agree to abide by the terms of the Security Agreement. (b) YOU GRANT AND PLEDGE TO US A CONSENSUAL LIEN ON ALL SUMS ON DEPOSIT to secure your obligations to the credit union pursuant to applicable state law. “All sums on deposit” and “shares” for purposes of this pledge means all deposits in any share savings, share draft, club, certificate, P.O.D., revocable trust or custodial accounts(s), whether jointly or individually held, that we have on deposit now or in the future, all of which are deemed “general deposits” for the purpose of this pledge. Your pledge does not include any IRA, Keogh, tax escrow, irrevocable trust or fiduciary account in which you do not have vested ownership interest. (c) You acknowledge and agree to impressment of the Credit Union’s statutory lien rights under the Federal Credit Union Act and/or applicable state law as of the date of your loan, which gives us the right to apply the sums in your account(s), to satisfy any obligations you owe to the credit union, regardless of contributions at the time of default, and without further notice to you or any owner of the account(s). (d) You acknowledge and agree to our “common law” right to set off under applicable state law which authorizes us to apply the funds in any joint or individual account to any obligations owed to us if you default or fail to pay or satisfy any obligation to us without any legal process, court proceeding or any notice to any owner of the account(s) affected hereunder or otherwise under this Agreement. (e) You specifically agree that we have a right to place an administrative freeze on any of your joint or individual account(s) and that such action shall not violate 11 USC 362 or other applicable law. IF YOU HAVE A CREDIT CARD WITH US, OUR RIGHTS ALSO APPLY TO THAT CREDIT CARD ACCOUNT.

Multiple Rights; Cumulative Remedies: You understand and agree that the Credit Union has multiple rights as enumerated above and that the remedies are cumulative. Nothing herein shall limit or restrict the remedies available to us following any event of default under the terms of your loan documents.

Cross-collateralization: Property given as security for this loan or for any other loan Borrower has with the credit union will secure all amounts Borrower owes the credit union now and in the future. However, property securing another debt will not secure this loan if such property is Borrower’s principal residence (unless the proper rescission notices are given and any other legal requirements are satisfied), or are non-purchase money household goods. IF YOU HAVE A CREDIT CARD WITH US, THIS CROSS-COLLATERALIZATION CLAUSE ALSO APPLIES TO THAT CREDIT CARD.

Release of Lien: We will not release any lien on any collateral under this Note if you are delinquent on, or in default on, any other loan you have with us. For example, if you are in default on a line of credit, we will not release our lien on a vehicle loan, even if the vehicle loan is current or paid in full.

Transfer of Collateral: You will not change the location of, sell or transfer the collateral unless you have our prior written consent.

Good Title: You warrant that you have good title to the collateral, free of all security interests except that given to the credit union and except for any interest of a non-co-maker owner of the collateral who has signed the agreement in the indicated place.

Maintenance of Collateral: You will pay all taxes, assessments, and liens against or attached to the property described and further agree to keep the property in good condition, housed in a suitable shelter. You agree to execute financing statements and security agreement amendments at our request and will defend the property against adverse third party claims.

Additional Security: Should we feel at any time that the security presented has diminished in value, or for any reason feel that additional security is required, you agree to assign to us within ten (10) days whatever additional security we feel is necessary to protect us against possible loss.

Actions Upon Default: If a default as defined in the Loan Agreement should occur, we, or a third party designated by us, have the authority, upon such default, to repossess and sell the collateral in a lawful manner. This includes authority to take possession of any personal property contained in the collateral. In such cases, we or our authorized representatives may, at our option, enter the premises where the collateral is kept and take possession, subject to applicable laws. We have the right to render the property pledged as collateral unusable and may dispose of the collateral on the premises where the collateral is kept. If we decide to sell the collateral at a public sale, private sale or otherwise dispose of the collateral, we will provide reasonable notice if required by law and will otherwise comply with applicable state law. If we sell or otherwise dispose of the collateral we may collect from you reasonable expenses incurred in the retaking, holding and preparing the collateral for and arranging the sale of the collateral. We may also collect reasonable attorney’s fees and legal expenses, permitted by applicable law, incurred in connection with disposition of the property. Unless you default, you may keep possession of the property (collateral) described and use it in any lawful manner consistent with this agreement or with the insurance policy on the collateral. You understand that we have certain rights and legal remedies available to us under the Uniform Commercial Code and other applicable laws, and that we may use these rights to enforce payment if you default. In the event of default, you will at our request assemble the property (collateral) and make it available to us at a place of our choosing. If we decide to waive this default, it will not constitute waiver of any other subsequent defaults.

Attorney-in-Fact: We are hereby appointed as your Attorney-in-Fact to perform any acts which we feel are necessary to protect the collateral and the security interest which this agreement creates.

Joint Borrowers: If there is more than one borrower, your obligations under this agreement are joint and several, each being equally responsible to fulfill the terms of this agreement.

Others Bound: This security agreement not only binds you, but your executors, administrators, heirs, and assigns.

For purposes of foreclosure under Louisiana executory process, you hereby confess judgment in our favor for all amounts secured by the Note, including, but not limited to, principal, interest, late charges, costs of collection, costs of preservation of the collateral, reasonable attorney’s fees, and all other amounts under the Note.

To the extent allowed under Louisiana law, you hereby waive the following rights and procedures under Louisiana law: (a) all rights and benefit of appraisal; (b) notice of seizure; (c) the 3-day delay afforded under Articles 2331 and 2722; and (d) all other provisions under Articles 2331, 2722 and 2723 and all other Articles not specifically mentioned herein. You further agree that any declaration of fact made by authentic act by a person declaring that such facts are within his or her knowledge shall constitute authentic evidence of facts for the purposes of foreclosure under applicable Louisiana law and for the purposes of LSA-R.S. 9:3504(D)(6) and LSA-R.S. 10:9-508, to the extent applicable.

PROPERTY INSURANCE; LENDER-PLACED INSURANCE – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

(a) Your requirement to maintain property insurance. You are required to carry insurance to protect your interest and our interest in the collateral securing this loan. The insurance:

• Must protect against any loss by fire or theft, and collision and comprehensive coverage on motor vehicles and other property pledged as security on this Loan.
• Must (i) be in an amount and type sufficient to repair the collateral to its existing condition prior to the loss, and/or to replace the collateral with comparable or like property, minus depreciation, if it is damaged or lost; or (ii) be in an amount and type as we might otherwise inform you that we require.
• Must have a maximum deductible as set forth by us.
• Must be maintained in force for as long as the loan is outstanding.
• Must name us as loss payee. We must receive the loss payee endorsement within 30 days of your loan date.

These requirements are solely in our discretion and we may change any of these requirements at any time for any reason. The insurance may be obtained by any insurer of your choice that is acceptable to us.

(b) Lender-placed property insurance. Please read carefully:

• If you fail to maintain insurance satisfying the requirements set forth above, or if you fail to provide us proof of such coverage, we may, but do not have to, obtain insurance to protect our interest (not yours) in the property.
• The total cost of lender-placed insurance will be added to the loan balance. The total cost of this insurance includes, but is not limited to, the premium, any administrative costs we incur, any commissions that may be earned, and other reasonable expenses related to your failure to maintain insurance. This cost will be paid by you either on demand, or by increasing your periodic payment, or by extending the loan term.
• Whether we obtain insurance, and the amount and types of coverage that we may obtain, is solely in our discretion. We may obtain this insurance from anyone we want, including an affiliate of ours, and such affiliate may earn a commission on the coverage.
• The insurance placed by us is without benefit to you personally, and is primarily for our protection. It may not adequately protect your interest in the collateral or any personal property contained in the collateral, and will not satisfy any mandatory liability or financial responsibility requirements under state law.
• Coverage obtained by us may be considerably more expensive than coverage you could obtain on your own and may be different than previous policies you may have had or policies that you may prefer.
• Any insurance placed by us will be effective as of the date your policy lapsed or, if you never obtained insurance, the date of the loan.
• Nothing in this agreement is intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights or status to you with respect to any agreements between us and our insurer or its agent.

(c) How to remove lender-placed property insurance. You may have the lender-placed coverage cancelled at any time by providing evidence to us that you have purchased insurance coverage satisfying the requirements set forth above. If you do so, you will receive a refund of any unearned premiums and finance charges on the lender-placed coverages and your loan balance will be adjusted accordingly.
(d) Other. You assign us the right to receive and endorse any insurance proceeds check, to apply those proceeds to the sums you owe, and you direct any insurer to pay those proceeds directly to us. You further authorize us or our representative to obtain the necessary information for verification of adequate coverage. We, or our affiliates, may receive compensation or reimbursement of expenses related to any insurance premiums added by us.
(e) Default. If you fail to maintain insurance as set forth above, you will be in default of your loan. We may either place our own insurance on the collateral as explained above, or we can declare you in default and take all remedies set forth in your loan or security agreement or available to us under applicable law, including calling the loan immediately due.
