Best Answer

You can refinance without the spouse but you will need their consent to do so. If the spouse is on the title of the home, the answer is "no". If the spouse is on the existing mortgage the answer is "no". If the spouse is not on title you need to indicate on the loan application that you are married, and if you don't is fraud. At the time of closing she/he would have to be present. Inform you spouse of your actions.

Can you refinance your home without your ex spouse knowing?

If the home is titled in your name only, your ex-spouse should have no need to know about your refinancing it. If your ex-spouse's name remains on the title, your ex-spouse would not only have to know about it, he or she would have to co-sign any promissory note related to refinancing the home loan. No legitimate financial institution would issue such a loan without a co-owner's signature. Moreover, if a loan were secured without the ex-spouse's signature or through fraudulent means, he or she would have a legitimate claim if the property went into foreclosure.

What is the cost of adding a spouse to a mortgage?

A spouse is not added to a mortgage; if the spouse already owns an interest in the property through deed or community property, then the spouse is subject to the mortgage, regardless of whether or not he or she signed it. Note, however, that many mortgages contain "due on sale" clauses which require the mortgage to be refinanced if there is a change in ownership of the property. Contact your bank to see if your loan contains such a clause.
