1  Eligibility for introductory rate and reduced closing costs require a United Community Bank checking account and debit card. Borrower will pay loan fees and closing costs ranging from $0 to $2,500. Bank may choose to waive a portion of the closing costs; however, if the HELOC is closed or the line reduced during the first 3 years following account opening, borrower will be required to reimburse bank for all waived closing costs. Borrower pays all costs pertaining to recording fees and mortgage taxes. Insurance on the property that secures your account is required. Flood insurance may also be required.

2 An annual fee of $100 will be assessed for the duration of the line without a qualifying checking account and debit card at United Community Bank.

3 The APR is variable and may change daily after the initial 12-month introductory period, but will never exceed 16%. Property insurance and flood insurance, if applicable, are required on all collateral. The APR for each loan is determined by credit qualifications, lien position, owner occupancy, loan-to-value (LTV) ratio and other loan features. The 3.50% APR represents borrowers with a minimum 750 credit score, owner occupied first or second lien primary residence, and maximum 70% LTV.

4 Check with your tax advisor on the tax deductibility of home equity interest.
