How to Track Wire Transfers

The term "wire transfer" refers to the early days of quickly moving money from one person to the next, when actual telegraph wires were used to transfer funds. Today's wire transfers happen electronically, going from the sender to the recipient after passing through the Federal Reserve. The process should happen instantaneously, but you can track it either using the authorization number your sending authority gave you, or the wiring service you used can help trace it using the IMAD/OMAD number, which is short for input/output message accountability data, issued by the Federal Reserve.

What Is a Mortgage Clause?

If something happens to your home, unless it's paid in full, the lender that holds your mortgage will have a vested interest in what happens next. For that reason, most homeowner's insurance policies will have something to protect the mortgageholder, known as a mortgage clause, mortgagee clause or loss payable clause. When you have a claim on a home that still has a mortgage on it, any claim checks will usually be made out to both you and your lender, which means you'll have to work with your mortgage company to get the funds released.

Federal Housing Administration loans come with a variety of qualification requirements. At one time, one of those requirements was that you purchased a 10-year home warranty if you wanted to use your FHA loan on new construction. The FHA has lessened those requirements, allowing homebuyers to qualify for a loan with only a one-year warranty, as long as you have a copy of the building permit and the certificate of occupancy.
