To remove private mortgage insurance (PMI) from your mortgage payments in Idaho, you typically need to follow these steps:

  1. Determine if you're eligible: Ensure that you meet the criteria for PMI removal. Typically, you need to have at least 20% equity in your home, a good payment history, and no other liens on the property.
  2. Review your mortgage documents: Carefully review your mortgage paperwork to understand the terms and conditions of PMI removal. It will provide details about when and how you can request its cancellation.
  3. Determine the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio: Calculate your loan-to-value ratio by dividing the outstanding loan balance (your current mortgage balance) by the appraised value of your property. If your LTV ratio is below 80%, you may be eligible for PMI removal.
  4. Request PMI cancellation: Contact your mortgage lender and formally request the removal of PMI. They may require you to provide documentation such as an appraisal confirming the current value of your home.
  5. Pay for a new appraisal: If your lender requires an appraisal, you'll need to hire a licensed appraiser to evaluate your property. Make sure they're approved by your lender and provide a copy of the appraisal to your lender.
  6. Wait for lender approval: Once you provide the necessary documentation, including the appraisal, your lender will review your request. If you meet all the criteria, they should approve the removal of PMI.
  7. Obtain written confirmation: Once your request is approved, ensure that you receive written confirmation from your lender stating that the PMI has been removed from your mortgage payments.


Keep in mind that these general steps may vary depending on your specific mortgage and lender. Review your mortgage terms and consult with your lender to get precise instructions on how to remove PMI from your mortgage in Idaho.
