(Question and answer applies only to Fix & Flip and Fix & Hold Loans) Besides the application fee, you will not owe us any money until you sell or refinance the property or until you extend beyond the initial term (typically 180 days), unless you default on the loan or choose to pay the origination fees upfront, rather than roll the origination fees into the loan. However, you will need to have cash available for 3rd party closing costs (title insurance, closing fees), holding costs (insurance, taxes, utilities), property maintenance and cleaning expenses, staging expenses, cost overruns, other expected or unexpected expenses and rehab labor and material expenses (until you receive rehab draws, if you have a rehab draw account). On the first day of the extension and every 30 days thereafter, you will owe an extension payment equal to 0.3% of the outstanding principal amount at that time. Accrued interest is added to principal every 30 days.
Are payments due while I’m rehabbing a house?
