How It Works:

A HELOC is a revolving line of credit. This means that as you pay off the credit advanced to you, you can use the credit line again throughout the term of your agreement. You may not exceed your credit limit.

How to Access Your Funds:

Beginning on the effective disbursement date of the agreement, you may obtain credit advances under your credit line in the following ways:

  • Transfer Funds Online – conveniently and quickly transfer funds from your account at any time through Ameris Bank Personal Online Banking
  • Credit Line Checks  – use preprinted checks that we will supply you
  • Requests in Person– request a credit advance in person at any of our authorized locations
  • Deficit Funds Transfer – if you choose, set up your accounts to have these funds transferred to cover overdrafts in a deposit account

Opening a HELOC is subject to credit approval. Borrower is responsible for closing costs over $2,000. Customary closing costs include third-party fees for property appraisal, attorney/title, credit reports, flood determination, recording and mortgage taxes. These costs generally range between $950 and $2,150. Property insurance is not a closing cost. Homes for sale are not eligible. Borrowers who close their credit line within the first three years are subject to a  $500 early closure fee.
