How can I determine how long it will take me to pay off my mortgage loan?
The amount of time that you will have to repay your mortgage is called the loan term. You can find this information on several of the mortgage forms you receive.
These forms are:
- Your Loan Estimate, on the top right corner of page 1
- Your Closing Disclosure, on the top right corner of page 1
Note: You won’t receive a Loan Estimate or Closing Disclosure if you applied for a mortgage prior to October 3, 2015, or if you're applying for a reverse mortgage. For those loans, you will receive two forms – a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and an initial Truth-in-Lending disclosure – instead of a Loan Estimate. Instead of a Closing Disclosure, you will receive a final Truth in Lending disclosure and a HUD -1 Settlement Statement. If you are applying for a HELOC, a manufactured housing loan that is not secured by real estate, or a loan through certain types of homebuyer assistance programs, you will not receive a GFE or a Loan Estimate, but you should receive a Truth-in-Lending disclosure.
