If flexibility is your priority, then a credit line is your best option. With a Home Equity Line, you have fast and easy access to the cash you need at a rate you can afford.

Ongoing accessibility: Access available funds now and in the future to pay for home improvements, education expenses, and other recurring needs without reapplying.

Flexibility: Adapt to changing interest rates without refinancing by setting aside a portion of your balance and repaying it like an installment loan with fixed-rate predictable monthly payments.*

Potential tax benefits: Unlike personal loans or credit cards, the interest on your home equity line may be fully tax deductible. Consult your tax advisor for details.

  • Little to no closing costs for lines of $250,000 or less*
  • Borrow up to 90% loan-to-value
  • Convenient access in person or by check
  • Link to your Hancock personal checking account for overdraft protection

*Home Equity Lines and Loans require a mortgage on an owner-occupied 1-4 family dwelling with a minimum lendable equity of $10,000 and a maximum loan-to-value of 90%. Property insurance is required. Rescission rights may temporarily restrict availability of funds. Subject to credit approval; other terms and conditions apply. Information subject to change without notice.

*The bank will pay most closing costs on lines or loans of $250,000 or less and up to $500 in closing costs for lines or loans over $250,000. Closing costs typically range between $261 and $2,150. Waived closing costs exclude: AL- Mortgage Recording Tax; FL- Documentation Stamp Tax and Intangible Tax. Other fees: A Takedown Fee of $50.00 will be changed each time you convert a portion of your line to a fixed monthly payment. Terms and conditions also apply. See banker for details.

*If you voluntarily cancel your line of credit within 12 months of opening, you will reimburse to us the nonaffiliated third-party closing costs that we have paid up to 2% of your credit limit.

*If you voluntarily repay your loan in full within one year from the date you make the loan, you will be required to reimburse to us any reasonable, bonafide third-party costs that were waived at consummation and paid by us on your behalf. However, in Mississippi, in no event will the amount of closing costs that you repay to us exceed 5% of the unpaid principal balance of the loan at the time of prepayment in full. No obligation to repay closing costs will apply if the source of the prepayment funds is a refinancing by us or an affiliate of ours or if the prepayment occurs more than one year from the date the loan is made.

1The Home Equity Line of Credit annual percentage rate (APR) is based on Wall Street Journal Prime Rate (the "Index") plus a margin ranging between 0% and 2.35%. The APR will vary but will not exceed 21% in AL/MS or 18% in FL. Based on the 11/9/15 Index value of 3.25% and a typical margin of 0.15%, the formula that will be used for subsequent monthly rate adjustments would result in a current APR of 3.40%. However, due to the floor rate, the APR will never be less than 3.99%. As of 11/9/15, typical APRs range from 3.99% to 5.50%. Repayment options and margins vary based on your creditworthiness, loan-to-value percentages, whether the mortgage securing your line is a first or second mortgage, and other factors. See a banker for details.

2The Home Equity Loan offers a fixed rate for up to 15 years. APRs vary and currently range from 4.99% to 8.24%. For example, a typical loan of $50,000 at a 5.49% APR for 15 years would result in a monthly payment of $410. Your APR may differ based on your term and creditworthiness. See a banker for details.
