Mortgage Rate Modification

Reduce your mortgage payment if rates have dropped since you first took out your Star One mortgage.

Form Instructions

To ensure your new payment is calculated properly, any principal balance reductions must be completed prior to submission.

NOTE: The current conforming loan limit is up to $417,000. The current Jumbo limit is up to $1,000,000. Real-estate loans over $1,000,000 are subject to a higher interest rate.

In order to receive this rate, the modification agreement must be signed/notarized and returned to Star One within 5 business days of receipt. Return it to Star One by U.S. mail at the following address:

Star One Credit Union
Attn: Real Estate Loan Modification Department
PO Box 3643
Sunnyvale, CA 94088-3643

OR

Visit any Star One branch and sign the modification agreement.

Your rate and payment will be adjusted within 7 business days of receipt. Your new rate and payment will be in effect in accordance with your next due date as specified on your modification agreement.

A Star One fixed-rate or adjustable-rate loan may be modified to a fixed-rate loan. A fixed-rate loan cannot be modified to an adjustable-rate loan.

An adjustable-rate loan can be modified to an adjustable-rate loan only during the initial fixed period and only to the existing adjustable-rate program.

Your new loan payment will be calculated at your new interest rate on the remaining term of your current loan or if desired to an available loan product with a term equal to or less than your current loan term. For example, a 30-year fixed loan with 21 years remaining can be modified to the 30-year fixed rate for the remaining 21 years or the term can be reduced to 20, 15 or 10 years at those respective rates. Use the field labeled "Requested Loan Product" to indicate the loan term you are requesting.
