Can you refinance a car after less than a year of making payments and if so do you have to use the same lender?

Yes, it will depend on your credit, and I can guaranty that you will need a down payment. It's just like buying the car the first time. You do not have to use the same lender. The more money you have down the easier it will be.

There are several ways a person can get a low rate on the mortgage refinance. A person can get a lower rate on their mortgage if they make the payments longer, making the monthly payments be less.

The lender sells the vehicle, sometimes at auction. They attempt to get whatever they can for it. Often the price the lender gets is less than the outstanding loan. If the lender gets less for the vehicle than the amount that is owed, the lender will seek the balance (the difference between what was owed and what they sold it for) from the borrower. So, lets say you bought a car for $1000. You quit making payments. You still owed $800 when the vehicle was repo'd. The lender sells the vehicle at auction and gets $500 for it. The lender will come after you for the remaining $300. That's pretty much how it works. Bottom line: make your payments. This is where aflac comes in handy.

Yes, it is possible to refinance with bad credit, however you may be dealing with some very high interest rates from hard-equity lenders. There will have to be enough equity in the home and the loan to value ratio that the lender will allow will generally be less than if you were dealing with a more traditional lender.

A mortgage is a contract between a homeowner and a lender. The lender finances the purchase of the home, and in return, the borrower must repay them over a period of time. In banking parlance, the lender amortizes the loan, usually over fifteen or thirty years. Part of the amortization process is determining what the interest rate on the loan will be. The interest rate applied to the amortized loan balance tells the borrower what their monthly payment will be. If the borrower gets into financial difficulty and cannot make the payments under their current interest rate, they can refinance their loan. Refinancing simply means that their loan is replaced by a loan with a lower interest rate. This can extend the life of the loan. Generally speaking, the homeowner pays off the interest first and the principal second. If they refinance their loan, this will reset all the interest payments they have already made, and they will have to start over from scratch. Even with this downside, they may still save money with the lower interest rate.
