The lender that review all your finance status and give you the pre approval letter have to give you a pre HUD with all the possible charges and the mortgage payments. If he/she didn't do that, you are entitled to get one.

This information can be found in the Good Faith Estimate provided to you, by your lender. Ask for a GFE if you have not received one.

Try as hard as possible to get a great deal, that way the sooner your have enough equity to refi and drop the mortgage insurance.

With a 3.5% down payment & a loan term longer than 15-years the annual mortgage insurance for FHA is 1.15% of your loan amount.

3.5% down on a $153k sales price would result in a loan amount of $147,645. 1.15% of that is $1,697.92, divided over 12 months equals $141.49/mo. That is why you are being charged ~$140/mo for MI.

Also understand that it is not PMI. It is MI. PMI means private mortgage insurance, as in a 3rd party private company insuring the loan. FHA is self-insured, so it's just mortgage insurance.

I was assuming this was an FHA loan. I have a calculator that figures all of the closing costs and monthy payments and when I put the info you asked about that is what I'm coming up with. I would ask the bank to be sure.

Is there any reason that you might know of why my lender is charging me $140 PMI? Thank you
