For a conv. loan yes you should not have MI after 80% LTV or having 20% equity in the property. If your loan is FHA you will have it no matter how much equity you have in your home. VA loans do not have MI. Barclay Butler. 224-420-9990. bbutler@barclaybutlerfinancial.com

Depending on the loan program they are suggesting FHA will have mortgage Insurance for the life of the loan now. Conventional loan as well as a few other programs should not if you have over 80% equity.

Hi Jrmalik554,FHA loans require MI no matter what BUT with 10% or more in equity the MI is a little cheaper & it will only last for 11 years, not for the life of the loan. Is there a reason you're looking at an FHA loan instead of a conventional loan?| Please feel free to contact me for more information or help. | John Burke | Senior Mortgage Banker | Great Plains National Bank http://www.valoansdoneright.com | (877)228-9069 | Lending in ALL 50 states

No.. All FHA loans are required to pay MI.. both upfront and monthly.. If you have sufficient credit scores and can meet eligibility requirements, then going conventional might be a better way to go.. with conventional, if you have 20% equity or more, there is no MI.. Also, FHA just announced a reduction in the monthly MI for loans that close after January 27th, 2017... Keep that in mind if you have to go FHA.. I'm the preferred Lender here in Scottsdale AZ and Arizona and California is my primary market.

For a conventional loan you should not be charged MI with those two amounts. I am licensed in KS, IL, and MO to help people with their residential mortgage needs.

All FHA loans have pmi insurance. I would see if you qualify conventionally. When you are under 80% loan to value on conventional loans you won't need pmi insurance. I would find out why you are refinancing FHA and not conventionally.
