review

I have a loan with US Bank and refinanced and closed on XXXX/XXXX/XXXX. The appraisal for the XX/XX/XXXX refinance was {$380000.00}. I was told I would have to wait until my loan was 5 years old before having the PMI removed. On XXXX/XXXX/XXXX, just before my 5 year anniversary date I contacted US Bank to have the PMI removed. My home value on XX/XX/XXXX per the current market was over {$500000.00} and my loan balance was {$310000.00}. The first representative indicated that I could arrange through US Bank to get an ” abbreviated ” appraisal for {$150.00} such that my new LTV was based on current market. She gave me a fax number and email to submit my request to. Upon submitting my request I received a canned text letter back stating the LTV must be XXXX % of original loan value and that HUD does not take into consideration current market value of property. That it ‘s based solely on the information from closing ( which would be the XX/XX/XXXX old appraisal amount of $ XXXX ). I let the issue go then recently logged into my account and noted that I am now well below the LTV they previously indicated I needed to be to have the PMI removed. Do you think they went ahead and proactively removed it!? NO, of course not. I placed another call and the representative I spoke with again mentioned and questioned why I had n’t paid the {$150.00} for an updated appraisal. He said he would contact the PMI department, have them send me a packet in the mail and that I should review the packet and see if I can find anything related to the appraisal option. So I waited for the packet to arrive … Instead of a ” packet ” arriving what I did receive was a XXXX page letter indicating that I ‘d met the HUD requirements for terminating the monthly MIP and that they ‘d notify HUD and update my monthly payment amount. I would like to be reimbursed for all months they charged me MIP from XXXX/XXXX/XXXX to todays date. It was I that proactively reached out to them several times requesting for it to be removed yet they A. ) did n’t give me the appraisal option such that the value was based on current market – as they apparently have for other customers and B. ) continued to charge me the last few months for MIP when I was already at the level they outlined in their letters.
