Home Equity Line of Credit Frequently Asked Questions 

*The property securing the CHELOC must be located in a state where PNC offers home equity products. PNC does not offer the CHELOC product in Alaska, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada and South Dakota.

Important Legal Disclosures and Information

  1. Credit is subject to approval. Certain restrictions and conditions apply.

  2. During the Six-Month Introductory Period: During the six-month period that begins on the closing date (“Introductory Period”), the Introductory Annual Percentage Rate (“Introductory APR”) applies to credit advances taken from the Variable Rate Part of the CHELOC. The Introductory APR is available for applicants with approved line sizes of $50,000 or greater. The Introductory APR does not apply to any balances you transfer to a Fixed Rate Part. No employee or other discounts (such as the automatic payment discount, described below) are available for the Variable Rate Part during the Introductory Period. Introductory Rate Offer is based on a CHELOC secured by a property. The Introductory APR is available for CHELOC applications received September 1 through September 30, 2022.  Offer available only in states where PNC offers home equity products (excludes Alaska, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, and South Dakota). Offer may be discontinued and at any time without notice.

  3. After the Six-Month Introductory Period: After the Introductory Period ends, any outstanding balance in the Variable Rate Part will convert to the Variable Annual Percentage Rate (“Variable APR”) per the terms of your CHELOC Account Agreement, which also applies to all subsequent advances. The Variable APR is higher than the Introductory APR and is based on the prime rate published in The Wall Street Journal plus a margin, but it will never be greater than 24% and will never be less than 2.25%. DEPENDING ON THE BALANCE OF YOUR CHELOC, YOUR MINIMUM MONTHLY PAYMENT WILL INCREASE, POSSIBLY SUBSTANTIALLY, AFTER THE INTRODUCTORY PERIOD ENDS. Variable APRs for loan amounts from $10,000 to $1,000,000 range from 4.86% to 11.85% as of September 1, 2022. Variable APRs shown also reflect a 0.25% interest rate discount for automatic payments from a PNC checking account. Your Variable APR may be higher or lower and will be based on the then-current variable-rate index value, your credit qualifications, amount of the line, loan to value, the property type, lien position and whether you elect the automatic payment feature from a PNC checking account. If automatic payment is discontinued, you will no longer receive an automatic payment discount.

  4. To receive a 0.25% interest rate discount to the Variable APR applicable after the Introductory Period ends, you must set up Automatic Payments from a qualifying PNC checking account at closing. The automatic payment discount will be discontinued if you cancel automatic payments. The automatic payment discount does not apply the Introductory APR.

  5. This account provides the option to establish one or more fixed rate parts during the draw period for a term of 5–30 years (except in the state of Tennessee where terms range from 5-20 years). A $100 transfer fee applies each time a fixed rate part is established or unlocked. See account terms or ask us for details. The Introductory APR does not apply to any balances you transfer to a Fixed Rate Part.

Carrier fees for data usage may apply.

Annual Fee: The annual fee is $50.

Account Opening Fees: Title insurance may be required for lines of $500,000 or more and for lines of lesser amounts depending on a number of factors, including the manner in which the property was acquired. If title insurance is required, fees may range between $605 and $16,270.

Transfer Fee: A $100 balance transfer fee is charged each time you establish a fixed rate part; however, this fee will be waived if you establish a fixed-rate part at credit line origination.

Reimbursable Fees: PNC Bank will pay certain closing costs on your behalf. If you pay off and close your line of credit within the first 36 months, you will be required to reimburse us for those closing costs. The amount you must reimburse us will decrease each month by 1/36th of the original amount we paid for you. 

Insurance: In addition to any required title insurance, you are required to carry property insurance on the property that secures your account. Flood insurance may be required. Your payments on this account do not include taxes or insurance.

Fixed Rate Part Payment Options:
This account includes an option to establish a Fixed Rate Part for terms ranging from 5 to 30 years. Payments include principal and interest amounts based on a level amortization schedule designed to fully repay the Fixed Rate Part amount at the end of the term selected.

Applicable Fixed Rate Part APRs will vary and are based on the index value for fixed-rate options in effect at the time a Fixed Rate Part is established; and a margin value based on your credit qualifications, the repayment term of the Fixed Rate Part, the amount of the transfer, the property type, loan to value, lien position and whether you elect the automatic payment feature from a PNC checking account established at the time of application. Once a Fixed Rate Part is established, the APR for that Part will not change. The minimum amount to establish a Fixed Rate Part is $5,000. Principal repayments during the Draw Period replenish the available credit line and are available for future draws.

Your rate may also be higher or lower as rates are subject to change at any time based on market conditions or other business factors including changes in benchmark interest rates. Call 1-855-762-9545 to obtain the most up to date rates available in your market.

The Fixed Rate Part rates and payments displayed are for new customers only. Existing CHELOC customers can consult their Line of Credit Agreement or find their Fixed Rate Part rates at
