What fees can my lender charge if I take out a HELOC?

Before you take out a Home Equity Line of Credit be sure to read the documents carefully to see what fees your lender can charge you. 

Under some plans, lenders can charge you:

  • For not using your HELOC (an inactivity fee)
  • For each year you have the HELOC (an annual or membership fee)
  • For terminating the HELOC early, usually within the first two or three years after it is opened (a cancellation fee)
