Payments, Fees and Late Charges

    

When is my payment due?

Payments are typically due to Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC (CMS) on the first of each month. Please refer to your billing statement to verify your loan’s due date.

Where do I send my payment? 

Your monthly billing statement shows the payment address and includes a return envelope. If you cannot use your billing statement, please mail your payment to:

Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC 
P.O. Box 79001
Phoenix, AZ 85062-9001

I want to make my payment using Western Union Quick Collect. How do I do that?

To locate the Western Union Agent nearest to you, call 1-800-325.6000 or go to www.westernunion.com.

Complete the Western Union Quick Collect Payment Form. Be sure to include the following:

  • Pay to – Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC
  • Code City – CARRINGTONMS
  • State – CA

Quick Collect payments are transmitted to our office after the close of business and are applied to your account the next business day.

When do you apply a late fee? 

Late fees are determined by your mortgage loan documents and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. If your payment does not reach us within the grace period specified in your mortgage loan documents, you will be assessed a late fee. For example, if your payment is due on the first of each month, and your mortgage loan documents afford you a 15-day grace period through the 16th of the month, a late charge will be assessed if your payment is received after the 16th of the month in which the payment is due. Your payment is considered received on the day that Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC physically receives it — not the date you mail the payment or the date on your check.
