How Your Credit Score Affects Your Mortgage Rate
To start you need to know what your current credit score is. You should compare that against the average Connecticut consumer credit score which is 696. The national average credit score is 677. Your credit score will impact what your home mortgage rate could be. Historically home mortgage rates have ranged from 5% to over 13%. Lenders create their home mortgage rates by using the Federal Discount Interest Rate (FDIR) and then increase it by using an internal formula to create their own home mortgage rate. When you apply for a home mortgage, your home mortgage rate will be determined by a whole host of factors, but your credit score is a very important factor.
Connecticut Mortgage State Laws
Only Judicial Foreclosure is practiced in Connecticut.
There are two methods of Judicial Foreclosure:
Strict Foreclosure: There is no sale of the property in this method. The lender proves to the court that the borrower is to be blamed for not paying the mortgage. The court provides the borrower with a time period to redeem the property, but if the borrower does not meet the deadline and the lender won the case, the lender maintains full rights to the property. The lender then has thirty days to write a certificate of disclosure.
Decree of Sale: The court sets a date and time for the sale, and has three appraisers set the property value. The borrower has up until the sale of the property to repay the mortgage and redeem the property
