Re: Prorated Tax Payment

This has an easy answer – add an adjustment of $1400 to the EscrowDue account (Settings tab > Adjustments section > New (plus) button > set account to EscrowDue). This tells Moneylender that there’s $1400 scheduled to be collected into the escrow account. Because regular payments always pay any escr...

Prorated Tax Payment

I have a loan where the borrower owes $1,400 for pro-rated property taxes. This was not collected at closing but is due before December 31st. What is the best way to enter this into Moneylender? My thoughts were to enter it as an escrow charge that’s due on December 31st? I want to be sure that it d...

Re: Amortized Engine Order

Their lack of understanding does not make them correct. They signed an agreement to pay a debt, and that debt has a written and authorize accumulation of interest and fees. Don’t be afraid that the borrower is upset, it’s not your job to force them to comprehend. You can, by choice offer to help the...

Re: Amortized Engine Order

Is that default order you described possible to modify? Another way to ask is how is that default order determined? What is the reason it goes First to escrow then fees then accrues interest then principal. The reason I am asking is that I have a borrower who is Behind by several months They are try...

Re: Amortized Engine Order

The default is payments always pay into the Escrow account first, then pay off any fees on the loan, then pay off any accrued interest, and whatever’s left pays principal. This is the same regardless of whether a loan is current or past due. I recently added (like a week or two ago) an option to hav...

Amortized Engine Order

In most loans you have Principal, Interest, Escrow & Fees In the amortized engine what is the order in which a payment is applied? If the buyer is late by a few months, and suddenly after 2 or 3 months makes a payment what accounts does that payment get applied to? Does the order in which the pa...

Re: Overpayment carrying forward even though it shouldn't??

It’s because the payment is late. If the borrower can’t make their payment within the grace period, Moneylender applies the catch-up rules to the loan. Here’s an example: Borrower is supposed to pay $1000 each month on the 10th. Late on the 20th and the late fee is $100. Borrower sends a check for $...

Overpayment carrying forward even though it shouldn't??

In one of my loan's if the buyer pays an extra amount it takes off that amount from the next month's payment. For example if the buyer paid $100 extra it takes $100 off of the next month's regularly scheduled payment. I DO NOT have Overpayments Carry Forward selected on this loan. I wish for the loa...

Re: How do I itemize the escrow charges into separate taxes and insurance?

No, there isn't a split at the time funds are put into the escrow account. The allocation of funds for various purposes happens when you disburse funds from the Escrow account. That's when we actually know how much is being paid to taxes or insurance. Some lenders get pushed into escrow unexpectedly...
