Pay off your home equity line of credit account

Pay off your account

If you’ve paid off your account and have a $0 balance, you can either close your account or you can keep it open for future use (as long as you're within your draw period). In either case, feel free to contact us to make sure you’re familiar with the terms and conditions as you may need to take action to avoid any fees.

Important: Your home equity line of credit is secured by a lien on your property which is on record with your local county recorder’s office. If you intend to pay off your account entirely, your local county clerk’s office typically charges a fee for processing the release of the lien on your property. We don't set this lien release cost, but will include it in your payoff quote.

The basics

  • You can count on us to provide you with a free payoff quote with important information about paying off your account.
  • As long as your line of credit remains open, the lien on your property will remain in place.
  • If you want to have the lien released you must request a payoff quote and close your account providing us with an authorization to close form when you send your payoff funds.

Here's what you should do to pay off and close your account:

  1. Request a payoff quote
