The interest on the second mortgage is deductible but not the home equity loan. If you could deduct the interest on the equity loan also, then you would be double dipping and the IRS doesn't like that. In every situation, one party can and the other party can deduct the interest. Someone has to pay tax on the money transfer.
If you have a first mortgage and a home equity mortgage, the home equity mortgage is a second mortgage. If the home equity mortgage is not paid, the lender can foreclose and take possession of the property subject to the first mortgage. The home equity lender can pay off the first mortgage and keep any excess proceeds from a sale.
Mortgage loans and home equity loans are two different types of loans you can take out on your home. A first mortgage is the original loan that you take out to purchase your home. Second mortgage means cover a part of buying of your home or to cash out some of the equity of your home. It is important to understand the differences between a mortgage and a home equity loan before you decide which loan you should use. Both types of loans have the same tax benefit since you can deduct the interest on each.
You may write off up to 100,000 dollars. Also, the interest expenses you pay on a home equity loan may be deductible no matter what you use the money for. The deduction can save you money on your taxes on your return as long as you itemize your deductions on Schedule A of Form 1040. If you claim your standard deduction, then you can never deduct the interest expenses that you paid on your home equity loan.
One can acquire a second mortgage from any lender based on the existing equity on the home. Basically, the second mortgage is borrowed on the "paid off" portion of the existing home, which is why it is also referred to as a home equity loan. You should, after having your home appraised, contact multiple lenders to find the best possible deal in terms of both interest and closing costs.
== A home equity loan is a type of loan in which the borrower uses the equity in their home as collateral. Home equity loans are based on the amount of equity you have built up in your home. (Home equity is the difference between the current value of a home and the amount still owed on the mortgage. As the principal of the mortgage amount decreases as a result of monthly mortgage payments, the home equity increases) You can borrow your loan as a traditional home equity loan (second mortgage) or a home equity line of credit (HELOC), which functions in a similar manner as a credit card. These loans are sometimes useful to help finance major home repairs, medical bills or college education. Which type of loan you choose is up to you and your specific financial needs. Both loan types are primarily low interest loans and, for most home equity loans, the interest you pay is tax deductible. However, it is important to know that when you take out a home equity loan, it means the lender can reposes your home if you default on your payments. So it's crucial that you maintain your loan payments. A home equity loan is a great financial resource, but if you don't pay it back, it could end up costing you your home.
A second mortgage is generally riskier for a lender because the second mortgage is subordinate to the primary loan. This means that if the loan defaults, the first mortgage is paid off first and the lender risks losing the money put up for the second mortgage. To cover the extra risk, there is a higher interest rate placed on the second mortage.
It depends. You may not be able to refinance at all if you don't roll both loans in, as the second mortgage holder has to allow you to keep the second loan subordinate to the first. The math you want to do, or have done for you, is to see which option allows you to spend the least amount on interest. The lower interest rate on the new, larger, mortgage should save you more interest than you will spend on the current mortgages, even after you consider closing costs.

A second mortgage is a loan that involves a second lien on the property. (The first mortgage is the first lien.) Generally, a second mortgage is for a fixed dollar amount paid out at one time, in the same way as a first mortgage, and can be fixed-rate or adjustable-rate. In the early 1980s, a second type of second mortgage appeared that was referred to as an "equity line of credit," which came to be known as a HELOC. A HELOC allows the homeowner/borrower to draw out money as needed up to a certain amount. HELOCs are always adjustable-rate. In short, both a second and an equity loan are "second mortgages." The rate and manner of disbursement are different. A second mortgage, by virtue of the ability to get it as a fixed-rate loan, would be the better option.
