If the borrower’s down payment is less than twenty percent, then the lender will require private mortgage insurance (“PMI”). This insurance ensures that the lender will not suffer any loss in the case the borrower defaults on the loan. The closing documents will generally state that the lender will maintain the account for the insurance and the borrower will make monthly payments towards it.
