Double Confirmation on Letter of Credit

A mortgage is an agreement between you and a lender that gives the lender the right to take your property if you fail to repay the money you’ve borrowed plus interest.

Mortgage loans are used to buy a home or to borrow money against the value of a home you already own.

Seven things to look for in a mortgage

  • The size of the loan
  • The interest rate and any associated points
  • The closing costs of the loan, including the lender’s fees
  • The Annual Percentage Rate (APR)
  • The type of interest rate and whether it can change (is it fixed or adjustable?)
  • The loan term, or how long you have to repay the loan
  • Whether the loan has other risky features, such as a pre-payment penalty, a balloon clause, an interest-only feature, or negative amortization

Even though most people get the letter of credit, the Double confirmation on Letter of Credit acts as an additional guarantee to it. This is obtained from the borrower from the second bank. 

The second letter so provided guarantees that the second bank will pay the full amount to the seller during transactions if the first bank is unable to do so. 

The borrowers need to get this second letter of credit, in case the seller has doubts about the creditworthiness of the bank issuing the first payment. Also, once a confirmed letter of credit is received, it reduces the risk of default issues for sellers.
