Are bills late if postmarked?

What happens if I pay mortgage before due date?

Since your lender will lose money for early prepayment of the entire or much of the balance of your mortgage, many mortgage loans have penalties for early repayment. While early monthly payments don’t trigger penalties, paying off your balance early may generate prepayment penalties in your loan note.

Are mortgage payments due on the 1st?

Most banks make mortgage payments due on the first of the month. For instance, if you can pay your mortgage 3 – 7 days earlier each month, within 4 – 8 months you’ll be a month ahead on your payments. While you’ll still have a payment due every month, paying early will help you pay down your principal.

Do all letters get postmarked?

When must taxes be postmarked?

How soon after closing is your first mortgage payment due?
