FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. WHAT IS MY LOAN BALANCE?

You will receive your principal balance every January printed on your IRS Tax form 1098, if your interest payments for the previous year exceeded $150.00 (it is important that you check Federal tax ID number printed on this form and inform us if it is incorrect - so that you will not be subject to an IRS $50 fine). If you need a balance more often, you may call us or email a request to:

autopay@bancentre.com

Please note that your loan balance is not your payoff amount.
 A payoff amount would include interest from the last payment due date to your next payment date.

 

2. HOW DO I PAYOFF MY MORTGAGE?

If your monthly payments are deducted electronically, you may choose to have Bancentre process your payoff from the same account. Please contact Bancentre at 360-834-8508 or via email at:

autopay@bancentre.com

Authorize your payoff at least 5 days prior to the day you have chosen and include the following information:
(1) The last 4 digits of your checking account number;
(2) Your phone number for confirmation purposes;
(3) Indicate if you want Bancentre to record the "Release of Mortgage" (see below);
(4) Deposit your payoff funds and be sure your bank considers them "good funds" prior to the date of payoff.

After the loan is paid in full, Bancentre will shut down the automatic payment system. You do not need to notify your bank. Many banks will charge a fee if you attempt to stop the automatic payments.




PAYMENT BY CHECK
If you prefer to mail us a check, contact Bancentre to obtain your payoff amount. We are unable to process payments in person.

All payoffs and payoff quotes are subject to audit.


RECORDING THE RELEASE OF MORTGAGE
Upon payoff of your loan, you have two options for recording the Release of Mortgage at the Bureau of Conveyances in the State of Hawaii.

Option (1)  Bancentre offers the service for recording. Include the $31.00 recording AND $2 handling fee with your payoff. Add the $33.00 to your payoff check. After the Release has been recorded, the Bureau will notify us and we will send you a letter with your recording information.


Option (2) We will send you the unrecorded "Release of Mortgage" and instructions on how to record it. You will then send the document, a self address stamped envelope, and the $31.00 recording fee directly to the Bureau of Conveyances in Hawaii.

3.
CAN MY LOAN BE ASSUMED IF I SELL IT TO ANOTHER PERSON?

MAYBE: As a policy we do not recommend a particular marketing company. We recommend that you do NOT pay up front fees for listing your property. Marketing of timeshares is expensive for a broker. You will find that the most effective broker will request a 25% to 35% commission, but no fees up front!  

Instead of listing the property, many of our customers have successfully sold their property by pitching it to friends, neighbors, family, and co-workers. Although less effective than the personal pitch, you might use www.craigslist.com 
(be sure to include an image in your ad). Your property can be viewed by accessing the Pahio web site at: www.pahio.com

Bancentre is currently allowing a buyer to assume payments if a broker is not involved. If the loan is assumed and extra funds are paid by the buyer to the seller, you may handle that directly between buyer and seller or use the services of an escrow company. If your buyer needs a larger loan please call 360-834-8508.

FEES:
$38 for assumption WITHOUT the release of the original borrower
OR
$208 for assumption WITH the release of the original borrower - PENDING APPROVAL FROM LOAN COMMITTEE

Send the $38 or $208 fee and a simple purchase agreement with buyer and seller's signatures to:
Bancentre Corp
4720 SW 5th Ave
Camas, WA 98607


The purchase agreement should have at least the following:
1. Purchase price
2. Date that buyer will assume payments
3. Name, address, email, phone, and SSN of the buyer
4. Name, address, email, and phone # for the seller

We will email to the buyer the appropriate forms for the assumption. Bancentre's policy regarding assumptions is subject to change without notice. Please note that you will only be relieved of your legal responsibility for the loan if you choose the assumption WITH release of the original borrower.

       

    

4.
HOW DO I DEED MY PROPERTY TO ANOTHER PERSON?

(1) To get a free "Quit Claim Deed" send a request to loans@bancentre.com. We do not recommend any vendors for legal forms, but the one we will send to you meets the requirements of the Hawaii Recording Office. 

(2) Complete the Quit Claim Deed. Type "see exhibit A" where it asks for description of property.

(3) Remove the Exhibit A from your old Deed (look in your files for "Interval Ownership Conveyance Document"). Attach the old Exhibit A to the new Quit Claim Deed.

(3) Grantors must sign the Quit Claim Deed in the presence of a Notary.

(4) Print the "Conveyance Tax Form" from the Internet by logging onto:


http://tax.hawaii.gov/forms/a1_1alphalist/


Click form P-64A or P-64B. The latter is a request for exemption (divorce, gift, etc.).

If you figured the tax correctly, it will be approximately $1 per $1,000 of the purchase price.     

(5) Write a check for the $31 recording fee plus the conveyance tax (about $1 per $1,000 in price, rounded up to the nearest dime) made payable to the HAWAII BUREAU OF CONVEYANCES and send your new Quit Claim Deed             (1 original and 1 copy), the tax form, and your check to:

BUREAU OF CONVEYANCES
STATE OF HAWAII
PO BOX 2867
HONOLULU, HI 96803

You must include a self-addressed stamped envelope in order for your document to be returned to you after recording.

If you have any questions you can reach the Bureau at 808-587-0147. If loan has not been paid off, please email Bancentre a copy of the first page of the recorded Deed.

              

 

5. WHAT HAPPENS IF I FALL BEHIND ON MY MORTGAGE PAYMENTS?

If you anticipate payment problems, contact James in collections via email: loans@bancentre.com or call 360-834-8508. You may be able to create a payment plan that will minimize damage to your credit. If you miss two consecutive payments or become more than 90 days delinquent, Bancentre may start the foreclosure process. It is important that you understand the consequences beyond losing your property:

(1) UNDER FORECLOSURE the property is sold for 25% - 30% OF ITS CURRENT VALUE because the new buyer must have cash at the auction.

(2) YOU WILL INCUR APPROXIMATELY $1400 IN ATTORNEY'S, NEWSPAPER PUBLICATION, AND COURT FEES

(3) YOUR CREDIT REPORT WILL REFLECT A FORECLOSURE

(4) THE HAWAII JUDGE CAN ISSUE A "DEFICIENCY JUDGMENT" AGAINST YOU.

Most States in which the "Judgment" is recorded will result in a lien AGAINST recorded assets (including your home).

(5) The judgment will severely RESTRICT YOUR FUTURE BUYING POWER for a recordable asset.

(6) The judgment accrues interest at 18% per year until paid.

(7) Bancentre may have the option of garnishment of wages.

In short - It is best to give your property to someone who is capable of assuming your monthly payments before allowing the mortgage to go into default. See above for "CAN MY LOAN BE ASSUMED (FAQ # 3)."

HOW DO I ORDER A COPY OF MY DOCUMENTS?

Use last name then first name with no comma. If your document does not show up, try using last name only.
