TeachMeFinance.com - explain loaded couponing
loaded couponing -- the practice of a lender including the cost of mortgage insurance in the interest rate stated in the loan note, rather than listing it as a separate monthly charge. The practice permits a lender to cancel the mortgage insurance at a later date, while continuing to collect the monthly insurance premium from the homeowner/borrower. The practice was prohibited in 1985 by the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation.
