Q. Is it possible to make a mortgage payment on the sixteenth day of the month?
A. Generally, mortgage payments are due on the first day of each month, with a 15-day grace period in between.

If your monthly mortgage payment is due on the first, you have until the sixteenth to get it to the lender.

However, if mail delivery is delayed, you risk exceeding the grace period and incurring a late fee. Additionally, the servicer may take an extended period of time to process your payment. A little hiccup might result in a late payment. In a nutshell, pay your bill early in the month.

Q. Does increasing your mortgage payment lower your monthly payments?
A. While any extra payment will not lower your monthly payment, it will reduce the loan balance, enabling you to pay off the loan sooner.

Q. Are extra payments paid to the principal automatically?
A. This is a common question. Although the majority of lenders/servicers will apply any extra payments to the principal, you should clarify this with the servicer.

Q. How quickly will I be able to pay off my mortgage with additional payments?
A. To get the answer to your question, use the additional payment calculator.

Q. Is it preferable to make more escrow or principal payments?
A. The total amount of interest on your loan is determined by the principle balance.
You will pay the lender less interest if you reduce the loan amount. Paying an additional payment to the escrow service will not result in a cost savings.

Q. Is it true that paying the principal reduces the amount of interest charged?
A. The monthly loan payment is not reduced with an over payment, but the extra amount will lower the total amount of interest paid to the lender.
