I have a variable rate and I understand completely that they can increase or decrease my rate at any given time. However since my credit is not good what I ‘ve done is send in additional payments towards my principal to pay off my loan earlier ( since my loan did not have a prepayment penalty ). Now Select Portfolio is reducing my principal to elongate my loan term to the full 30 years. Keep in mind they are not increasing my interest simply adjusting the amount that is applied towards the principal, which is unheard of to everyone I ‘ve discussed this with! As previously mentioned I fully understand they can adjust the rate but can they Legally reduce principal payments to maximize their profit? It is hard to belief this can possibly be legal, can someone please call me to explain.
