Not resolved

I split my mortgage up into two payments to make it easier on finances. Payment coupons are marked as going towards the monthly payment.

What happens instead? The first half goes to an escrow account while the second half goes to the monthly payment. What the *** are they doing messing with an escrow account when my loan docs say I am not supposed to have one? Then, instead of transferring the first payment from the escrow account I didn't ask for to the principal, they let it sit in the escrow account, making you late on your payment.

Apparently my account is marked for the payment being received in parts, not a single payment to prevent payments from being withheld. I don't believe them, there's is no excuse for any payment, partial or whole, from being credited to the account. Luckily I have a paper trail of everything so these *** can't get anything over on me. Since I work in the mortgage industry, I know exactly what these idiots are trying to do: using greed to maximize the interest I am paying.

Do your own math.

Splitting the payments up into two halves can cut the time to pay off your mortgage by 5+ years. To screw you over, PennyMac will force you to keep paying those extra 5 years.

Thank you for sharing this. I will not pursue setting up anything like this with them.

I have been on an every 4 week payment cycle. My thought was to just divide my payment by 12 and add that amount to my every four week payment. This schedule has put me ahead on their schedule so they show no payment due until March 2019.

I checked the one time payment section just for giggles and their site has literally blocked that option. I am at a loss.


Same here, I am trying to do automatic payments every 3 weeks and the continually delay the withdrawals upto 4 days after I tell them to take them. I called them and now they won’t even talk with me. Have no clue where this is going to go!!!!


Should have been every 2 weeks
