1 Offer limited to new Home Equity Lines, not available on refinancing of existing Hancock Whitney Bank home equity line of credit or home equity loan, and requires a mortgage on an owner-occupied 1-4 family dwelling with minimum lendable equity of $10,000 and a maximum loan-to-value of 80% in Texas†, or a maximum loan-to-value of 90% in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Louisiana.

† Important Information for Texas Residents: Texas laws impose certain restrictions on loans and lines secured by a lien on your home. In Texas, each individual advance from your line of credit must be in an amount of at least $4,000. The maximum amount of your new home equity line or loan, when combined with the dollar amount of all other liens on your home, may not exceed 80% of the fair market value of your home on the date your home equity line or loan is made. Only one home equity line or loan is allowed on the home at a time and no more than one home equity line or loan may be made on the home within a 12-calendar month period. Other restrictions apply. See a banker for details.

Overdraft option and check access not available in Texas.

2 The Home Equity Line annual percentage rate (APR) is based on The Wall Street Journal Prime Rate (the “Index”) plus a margin ranging between 0.25% and 4.35%. The APR will vary but not exceed 21% in AL, MS or LA or 18% in FL or TX. Based on the 5/4/23 Index value of 8.25% and typical margin of 0.65%, the formula for subsequent monthly rate adjustments results in a current APR of 8.90%. Please note, due to the floor rate, the APR will never be less than 3.99%. Your APR may be higher. As of 5/4/23, APRs range from 8.50% to 12.60%. Repayment options and margins vary based on creditworthiness, loan-to-value percentages, whether the mortgage securing your line is a first or second mortgage and other factors.

The Bank pays closing costs on home equity lines of credit up to and including  $250,000. However, the Bank will not pay any fees associated with surveys or any curative title work that may be required in order to perfect a lien, nor will the Bank pay any initial or ongoing homeowner’s or condominium association fees or costs. All such fees and costs are the client’s responsibility. The Bank also will not pay any portion of the Alabama Mortgage Recording Tax, the Florida Intangible Personal Property Tax, the Florida Documentary Stamp Tax, the Orleans Parish Documentary Tax (where those taxes may be applicable and vary with the loan amount) for a Line with a credit limit greater than $100,000. Clients have the option to pay closing costs on lines under and including $250,000 and receive a 0.50% rate discount on the regular non-promotional rate. On lines of credit over $250,000 the Bank might pay on your behalf a portion of your closing costs up to a maximum of $500.

If you voluntarily cancel your line of credit within 12 months of opening, you will reimburse to us the non-affiliated third-party closing costs we paid, up to 2% of your credit limit. In MS and LA only, you will reimburse the lesser of (i) 2% of your credit limit or (ii) 5% of the unpaid principal balance of your line at the time you cancel. No obligation to repay closing costs will apply in Texas. Additionally, 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.

4 When using the fixed-rate option (also called a "takedown"), there is a $5,000 minimum amount and $50 fee for each take down. Due to state law, we do not charge a take down fee in Texas. You can have up to four take downs outstanding at any time. Other terms and conditions apply. See a banker for details.
