I found one that will do it but charge you an appraisal fee. I found one that had no closing costs up to $100K ( I want more than that). A couple of those charge a fee if the account is closed before 3 years.&nbsp; So basically I'm interested in bank that offers a 90% ltv heloc which actually doesn't cost anything. I don't care too much about the interest rate. Let me know if you know a bank that meets those criteria. I'm in the SF Bay Area.
