Delays can occur depending on the way your bank sends your online bill payment to us. There are three ways that your bank may do this.
- The funds are immediately withdrawn from your bank account and a check is mailed to Caliber. Caliber will post the funds to your loan within 24 hours of receipt. However, since the check was mailed, there is a delay due to mail time between when the funds were withdrawn from your bank account and when they post to your loan.
- A check is mailed by your bank to Caliber and funds are withdrawn from your bank account after it is deposited by Caliber. Again, mail time can delay the receipt of the check by Caliber.
- An ACH is sent (which means no check is sent) and funds are sent to Caliber electronically and posted to your account upon receipt.

I set up recurring payments, but my next loan payment is due before it starts. How can I make my next payment?
You have several options for making your next loan payment, which will not affect the recurring payments you’ve scheduled. You can:
- make a single online payment
- mail in your next payment
- pay by phone via our automated phone system
- pay by phone with one of our friendly customer service agents.
Credit cards are not accepted by Caliber. We accept payments from your bank account or debit card, or a mailed money order or cashier’s check.
You can set up free recurring payments online through your preferred bank account.
- Log in and submit a Payoff request from the Make a Request menu.
- You may also fax your request to 405-608-2003.
You have three options for making monthly loan payments:
- Log in and pay online using your bank account or debit card.
- Mail a check or money order to Caliber Home Loans, PO Box 650856, Dallas, TX 75265-0856.
- Call Customer Service at 800-401-6587.
You can choose from several convenient payment options, including:
One-Time Monthly Payments from your bank account or debit card:
- Your payment will be automatically withdrawn and will post to your account on the date you specify. Any payments made after 9:59 PM CST, or on weekends, will take two business days to be credited to your loan. All one-time drafts take a minimum of one business day to post and can be scheduled up to one week in advance.
Recurring payments from your bank account:
- Monthly Payments:
- You must be current in order to enroll in this draft frequency. Select one date each month that your payment will be drafted. With this option, you may include an additional principal amount to draft with your payment each month. In order to ensure a late fee is not assessed to your account, your monthly draft dates cannot exceed your contractual due date plus the number of grace period days allowed on your account. For Example: If the due date is the 1st and your account has a 15-day grace period, the draft date may be any date between the 1st and the 16th of the month. If no draft date is chosen, Caliber will set the draft date to be your contractual due date.
- Bi-Weekly Payments:
- You must be paid 1-month in advance in order to enroll in this draft frequency. Half of your monthly payment will be drafted every 2 weeks on the day of the week of your choosing, Monday through Friday. This option will reduce your principal balance faster by applying your 13th and 26th drafts each year to your principal balance. In a bi-weekly payment program, the first half of your payment will be held in a suspense account until the second half is drafted.
- Semi-Monthly Payments:
- You must be paid 1 month in advance to enroll in this draft frequency. Half of your monthly payment will be drafted each month on two dates of your choosing (Example: 1st and the 15th). The first half of your payment will be held in a suspense account until the second half is drafted to complete your total monthly payment.
Log in to your account at https://myaccount.caliberhomeloans.com and select Recurring Payment Setup from the menu. You can set up recurring payments from your bank account in a monthly, semi-monthly or bi-weekly frequency (options available are dependent on loan status).

Here are details of each portion of a typical loan payment:
Principal: This is the portion of your payment that gradually reduces the balance that you borrowed.
Interest: The interest you pay is the cost of borrowing money. If you have a fixed-rate loan, this will not change unless you refinance. If you have an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM), your loan’s rate will adjust up or down at scheduled times – in accordance to the terms of your note.
Taxes: Most loans require an escrow account and will collect one-twelfth of your annual property tax amount in this account with each mortgage payment.
Insurance: Since your annual homeowner’s or hazard insurance premiums are only paid once a year, they’re considerably larger than most monthly bills. An escrow account that’s attached to your loan makes your tax and insurance premiums easier to manage as you pay 1/12th of each bill every month.
Mortgage Insurance: This is different than homeowner’s insurance, and is usually due if you bought your home with a small down payment. This is because most loans with less than 20% equity require Mortgage Insurance, or MI to protect your lender in case of default.
Depending on your loan, you may have up to 15 calendar days to make a monthly payment without incurring a late charge. Refer to your loan’s Closing Disclosure for details of your loan’s grace period, and how late fees are calculated.

An escrow account is an account that’s set up to collect funds for paying your annual property taxes and/or homeowner’s insurance premiums. Other items like mortgage and flood insurance may also be included.
Confused by escrow? Watch our videos to learn more about what your escrow account is for, and how often we review it. ESCROW EXPLAINED: https://vimeo.com/231872654
Many loans require an escrow account to help guarantee your taxes and insurance payments are always made on time. Escrow accounts also enable us to offer you competitive rates and reduce the possibility of your home’s taxes or insurance from becoming delinquent.
- You won’t have to pay your annual property taxes or Insurance premiums yourself! Caliber will take care of this for you.
- Easier, month-to-month payments toward your annual property taxes and insurance premiums. Instead of having to produce the entire payment when due, an escrow account only requires you to pay 1/12 of these costs each month, plus any cushion amount required on your loan.
Typically, the funds in an escrow account pay for:
- Property taxes
- Homeowners/Hazard insurance premiums
- Mortgage insurance premiums if required
- Flood insurance premiums if required
- Condo unit owners’ insurance if required
An escrow account doesn’t pay:
- Interim tax bills, supplemental tax assessments, or any other fees that are not included in your property tax bill
- Homeowners’ Association (HOA) fees
- Premiums for coverage such as personal property insurance
- Utility bills
Your escrow payment is calculated based on the most recent tax and insurance payment information available on your loan. The annual tax and insurance amounts are added together and then divided by 12 to determine the monthly escrow payment. If your escrow account does not have sufficient funds available, a monthly shortage payment may also be added to the escrow payment.
If your property tax payment or insurance premiums change then your escrow payment will also change.
An escrow cushion is money collected to cover any unanticipated disbursements or payment increases. Federal and State guidelines may determine the amount of the cushion which is usually equal to 2 months of escrow payments.
Caliber reviews your account annually to make sure you can cover your property taxes and insurance premiums along with the escrow cushion. This review goes over the deposits and expenses for the previous year and projected activity for next year.
A shortage is any time your projected escrow balance is less than the allowable escrow cushion.
If you have a shortage, it will automatically be spread over 12 months and added to your new monthly escrow payment. You can also pay the shortage in full. Please note: Your payment may still increase due to a change in either taxes or insurance premiums even if the shortage is paid in full.
An escrow surplus is any time your projected escrow balance is more than the allowable cushion.
A surplus less than $50 will remain in your escrow account.
A surplus greater than $50 will be mailed to you in the form of a check if your loan is current in status when the escrow analysis is completed.
Yes. Deposit your escrow surplus check into your own account first. When making your next monthly payment, add the surplus funds for your escrow.
**For your security, please do not endorse the check to return it. This incurs risk if the check is lost or stolen before it is delivered to Caliber Home Loans.
If you are set up on recurring draft with Caliber Home Loans, no action is needed on your part! The new amount will automatically be taken from your account.
Because your bank isn’t aware of the change, you will need to adjust future payments within the bill pay service.

Caliber reviews your escrow account at least once a year, although additional out of cycle analyses may be completed.
If you have surplus funds in your escrow account, Caliber will issue a check for your escrow balance within 30 days of the loan paying off.
Generally, an increase in your monthly escrow payments are the result of increased property taxes or insurance premiums.
You will be given two options:
- Net your escrows:Caliber will apply the balance of your escrow account toward the payoff of your existing loan. This may reduce the amount of funds needed to close your new refinance OR increase the amount of cash (proceeds) you will receive at closing.
- Escrow refunds: Caliber will issue a check for your escrow balance within 30 days of the loan paying off.
No. Caliber is required to set up a new escrow account for your new loan.
Your loan can be analyzed more than once on an annual basis. Below are several examples of reasons why this may occur:
- Caliber recently acquired your loan
- Anniversary Analysis
- State analysis
- Change in your annual tax and/or insurance amounts or due dates
- Shortage spread extension request
- Escrow was added to your loan
- A tax or insurance refund was received
- Completion of a loan modification
- Your loan was reinstated
No. If you have an escrow account, Caliber will pay your property taxes for you with the funds you’ve already deposited in your escrow account.
If your loan does not have an escrow account, you will need to arrange payment directly with your county or parish tax office/assessor.
Watch our video to learn more about property taxes. PROPERTY TEXAS EXPLAINED: https://vimeo.com/268821373
Sometimes it will take several weeks for your tax assessor to inform Caliber that you’ve paid your taxes. If this happens, you can send us proof of your recent tax payment. This can be a copy of the receipt from your tax office, or a copy of both sides of your cancelled check.
Please write your account number on each copy before mailing it to:Caliber Tax DepartmentP.O. Box 9203Coppell, TX 75019-9210

If you have received a tax sale notice, please contact the Caliber Tax Department at 844-815-6406. The department is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM CST.
Supplemental tax bills may be issued during your first year in your new home. These are issued when your property’s new assessed value is higher than its previous value. These are not included in escrow accounts as they are not issued every year, so you will need to make arrangements to pay it.
If you can’t pay your supplemental tax bill by its due date, please do one of the following:
- Contact Caliber’s Tax Department at 844-815-6406
- Write your loan number on the supplemental tax bill and mail it to Caliber at: Caliber Tax Department P.O. Box 9209 Coppell, TX 75019-9218

Write your loan number on your new insurance policy’s declarations page and send it to Caliber Home Loans, P.O. Box 7731, Springfield, OH 45501-7731. You may also fax it to 937-525-4120 or update your insurance information online at: www.MyCoverageInfo.com/Caliber
This will depend on the payee on the check.
If the check is made out to Caliber Home Loans and you have an escrow account, send it to Caliber Home Loans Escrow Dept., P.O. Box 650856, Dallas, TX 75265-0856. This will prevent a future escrow shortage and also informs us that you’ve switched insurance companies.
If the check is made out to you, you may deposit it to your account. We recommend that you transfer these funds to your Caliber escrow account when making your next monthly payment to prevent a future shortage.
If you do NOT have an escrow account, keep the refund! It’s yours.
Your insurance company must provide you with a reason why your coverage was cancelled. You may contact your current insurer and ask that they reinstate coverage, or shop for new coverage from another insurer.
It’s important that you renew your homeowner’s insurance as soon as possible, as your home loan requires it. If your home becomes uninsured, Caliber will have to purchase insurance for you and bill you for it. Insurance purchased by a lender may be more expensive than your previous coverage, and may not provide you with your preferred level of coverage.
If you did not pay your insurance premium because you’re having financial difficulties, please call Customer Service at 800-401-6587 to discuss your options.
Lender Placed Insurance (LPI) is insurance coverage obtained by Caliber on your property when your retail policy has canceled or non-renewed and Caliber has not received proof of insurance from your retail carrier. If you received a lender placed insurance notice from Caliber but have your own policy, please forward proof of insurance to Caliber. Write your loan number on your insurance policy’s declarations page and send it to Caliber Home Loans, P.O. Box 7731, Springfield, OH 45501-7731. You may also fax it to 937-525-4120 or update your insurance information online at: www.mycoverageinfo.com/Caliber.
Watch a short video about the Lender Placed Insurance here!
This is a clause in an insurance contract that entitles a named mortgagee (Caliber Home Loans) to be reimbursed for damage or loss to the property. This protects your lender (Caliber Home Loans) so we can ensure the damage is completely repaired and the property is brought back to its original state. An insurance claim check will have two payees - Caliber Home Loans and the borrower - on the check.
Please use the following Mortgagee Clause for Caliber Home Loans:Caliber Home Loans, Inc.ISAOA/ATIMAPO BOX 7731Springfield, Ohio 45501-7731
Mortgage insurance is NOT the same as homeowner’s insurance. Mortgage insurance makes it possible for lenders to offer financing with low down payments, as it protects them against non-payment. Your mortgage insurance costs may be added to your monthly loan payments, or you may pay it at closing.
If you have a conventional loan, you may be required to have private mortgage insurance (PMI), while FHA loans may require you to pay Mortgage Insurance Premiums (MIP). PMI and FHA MIP are paid monthly. USDA fee is paid annually.
If your mortgage is a single family, primary residence when the balance of your mortgage is first scheduled to reach 78% of the original value of the secured property (based solely on your initial amortization schedule), your monthly PMI costs will be removed from your loan. PMI also terminates automatically at midpoint of your contract terms as long as your loan is current.
Want to learn more about why you have Private Mortgage Insurance on your loan? View our PMI video for more. PMI EXPLAINED: https://vimeo.com/231872640
If you have a loan with private mortgage insurance, we follow HPA guidelines and will auto-terminate when your loan to value reaches 78% based on your original amortization schedule. However, you have the right to request PMI removal at any time. Please read the requirements and follow instructions on how to submit an MI Removal Request form to Caliber. If you would like to see if you may qualify for cancellation online, please follow the steps below.
Steps to determine PMI removal eligibility:
- Log in to your account.
- Select Request to Delete PMI from the Make a Request menu.
- Review the evaluation of eligibility.
If you have questions or would like to appeal your eligibility, please contact Caliber Home Loans at 1-800-401-6587 or send a written request to Caliber Home Loans Inc. PMI Department, P.O. Box 272556, Oklahoma City, OK 73137-2556. We will review your loan account to determine if you meet the requirements for mortgage insurance removal. Please allow 30 days for us to complete our review.
The Homeowners Protection Act of 1998 requires Caliber Home Loans to send customers with PMI an annual written statement informing you of your right to cancel or terminate PMI.
Your FHA MIP payments are included in your monthly loan payment.
UFMIP stands for Up-Front Mortgage Insurance Premium. This must be paid when your loan closes, although it can be added to your loan amount.
Our ability to cancel your MIP depends on several factors, including when it was originated, the amount of your down payment, your loan term, and your loan’s current loan-to-value (LTV) ratio. In addition to the information stated below, there are more requirements that are needed for MIP termination.
If your loan was originated between January 1, 2001 – June 2, 2013 and
- if your loan term is greater than 15 years, then your monthly insurance payments will be cancelled when the LTV reaches 78%. This is calculated based on the original value of your FHA home loan and only if you have paid the annual MIP amounts for at least 5 years, or;
- if your loan term is 15 years or less, then your monthly insurance payments will be cancelled when the LTV reaches 78%. This is also calculated based on the original value of your FHA home loan.
If your loan was originated on or after June 3, 2013 and
- if your loan term is greater than 15 years and if your original down-payment was less than 10%, then MIP will be required for the life of the loan, or;
- if your loan term is greater than 15 years and if your original down-payment was more than 10%, then MIP will be cancelled after 11 years, or;
- if your loan term is 15 years or less and your original down-payment was less than 10%, then MIP will be required for the life of the loan, or;
- if your loan term is 15 years or less and your original down-payment was more than 10%, then MIP will be cancelled after 11 years.
Homeowners associations (HOAs) are organizations which deal with the upkeep of common areas and establish standards of acceptable behavior for the building or community. For example, HOAs may issue guidelines for lawn and garden upkeep, visitors, and pets.
Opting out is not an option. All homeowners must pay HOA dues and follow its guidelines and rules. If you’re considering purchasing a property with an HOA, it’s always a good idea to talk to other property owners if possible, so you’ll know if you’ll be comfortable living within its HOA.
Your HOA payments are not part of your escrow account. If you’re having difficulties and would like a one-time disbursement for the delinquent HOA payments, send the delinquency letter with an explanation of your financial difficulties to:

A successor in interest is someone who acquires an ownership interest in a property secured by a mortgage loan by transfer upon the death of a relative, as a result of a divorce or legal separation, through certain trusts, between spouses, from a parent to a child, or when a borrower who is a joint tenant or tenant by the entirety dies.
Confirmed Successors in Interest are entitled to the same protections and notifications as the original borrower, under Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, Regulation X and Truth in Lending Act Regulation Z. These regulations can be found at ConsumerFinance.gov.
A successor in interest is defined by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) as a person to whom an ownership interest in a property secured by a mortgage loan has been transferred.

I missed a payment. Can you make a goodwill or courtesy adjustment and remove it from my credit report?
We understand that you may be concerned about the impact of a late payment. Because the information we report to the major credit bureaus is required to be complete and accurate we are unable to make goodwill or courtesy adjustments.
A payment can be reported as 30 days past due if it is not received within the calendar month in which the payment is due. Although February only has 28 days, or 29 days in a leap year, if you do not pay February within the month, you can still be reported as 30 days past due.
Always be careful when making mortgage payments as the end of the month nears, especially on weekends. Be sure to allow time for your payment to post.
To get your free credit report or for more information, go to annualcreditreport.com. You are entitled to a free credit report every 12 months from each of the three major credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion)

I’m refinancing my loan. If I don’t make the normal payment within the month before I close, will I be reported late?
A payment can be reported as past due if it’s received 30 or more days after your due date, even if you’re paying off your mortgage. It’s a good idea to make your payment as usual and we’ll send you a refund check if you overpay.
Your closing date may not be the day we receive your payoff. It may take additional time for your closing or title agent to send us your payoff funds.
The good through date on your payoff quote is the expiration date on the amount indicated to completely pay off your loan. It doesn't provide an extended grace period to make your normal payment.
The 1098 statement details all interest, taxes, and insurance paid on a mortgage for a given year. Caliber is required to send the customer this statement by January 31 of each year.
The IRS only requires the social security number of the primary borrower on the 1098. Please note that we are unable to change the social security number on 1098 statements.
Your 1098 may show that no taxes were disbursed for one of the following reasons:
- The taxes were paid at closing.
- The taxes were not paid from the escrow account in the year the 1098 is reporting on.
- The loan was paid off before the taxes were due.
A 1099-INT is an income form that provides interest earned on funds held in an escrow account.
State law requires Caliber to pay you interest for funds being held for escrow, loss draft, renovation or 203K purposes. Because these funds are taxable interest paid to you by Caliber, we are required to report that information to the IRS.
A 1099-C is an income form that reports when the full or partial amount of the debt is cancelled.
Caliber is required to disclose to the IRS if/when we cancelled in full or a partial amount of the debt. This could have been due to one of the following:
- Short Sale
- Deed in Lieu
- REO liquidation
- Third party sale
- Loan Modification
Selling mortgages is a very common practice and allows for more cash in the marketplace, so that Caliber can make loans to more homebuyers.
You will need to refinance your mortgage. To speak to a loan officer about your refinance options, please call 855-808-2124 or visit caliberhomeloans.com/refinancing
An inspection is necessary to ensure the property is still occupied when the loan is delinquent. The mortgage deed included in your closing package outlines the preservation of the property and responsibility for the associated costs.
