For example,
  • Double Up Option - The opportunity to double the scheduled principal and intereste payments.
  • Lump Sum Payment Option - The choice to prepay a portion of the principal.
  • No Cost Switching of Payment Option - This option allows the borrower to change the payment schedule (monthly / semi-monthly / bi-weekly / weekly).
  • Skip Payment Option - This alternative grants the borrower the ability to skip monthly payment without the mortgage going into default.
