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 Delaware consumer credit score which is 683. The national average credit score is 677. Your credit score can impact what your home mortgage rate might be. Historically home mortgage rates have ranged from 5% to over 13%. Mortgage Lenders create their home mortgage rates by using the Federal Discount Interest Rate (FDIR) and then increase it by using a secret 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.

Delaware Mortgage State Laws

Regarding Foreclosure

Judicial Foreclosure is only foreclosure process used in Delaware.

Scire Facias is the most common procedure elected for judicial foreclosure in Delaware.

After the lender files foreclosure, the borrower must appear in court and defend him/herself. This is the main difference between foreclosure in Delaware and foreclosure in other states; the borrower has to prove that the default of the mortgage is not his/her fault. If the court decides the borrower is at fault, the property will be sold.

The sheriff sells the property either at the court or the property. The sale takes place two weeks after the sale of the property has been announced to the community (via posted notices, etc.)

The buyer may not redeem the property after the court sells it.

Regarding Licensing

Mortgage Brokers must be licensed by the Office of the State Bank Commissioner.

Regarding Satisfaction of Mortgage

When the mortgage payment is complete, and the mortgagor requests the mortgagee to satisfy the record, the mortgagee has sixty days to do so before paying fines. The mortgagee may be fined up to $1000.
