Home Equity FAQs

What is a home equity line of credit?

A home equity line of credit is a type of revolving credit that uses your home as collateral, or security for the debt.
Here’s how it works:

  • The interest rate is variable.
  • The monthly payment amount is based on the outstanding balance and will include principal and interest.
  • The term includes a draw period followed by a repayment period. During the draw period, you can borrow as much or as little as you need, whenever you need it.
  • As you repay your outstanding balance, the available credit amount is replenished. This means the amount you can borrow increases, up to your credit limit.
