The Federal Reserve and Bank Rate have guides on their websites with tips on refinancing a first mortgage. A local bank or credit union could also provide this information.

Yes you can. But when you refinance your 2nd mortgage you have to inform your 1st lender and 2nd lender both.

If your first mortgage has been discharged it cannot be refinanced since there is no longer any debt. You can grant a new mortgage.

One can get a loan for a 1st and 2nd refinance mortgage from several places. These places include Bank Rate, Wells Fargo, Lending Tree, and Bank of America.

Good credit and some money to put down is really helpful. Think about having 20% of the price of the house on hand to put down. If you don't, then you will probably have a 1st and 2nd mortgage right off the bat (you can refinance later into one big mortgage).

Yes. You must either pay off the home equity loan separately or with the refinance, or you must request that your home equity lender "subordinate" your loan. This means they sign a written and recorded agreement that allows your new first mortgage to be recorded on title in place of the old one and the home equity lender agrees to state "subordinate" to the new first. Your refinance loan officer or title company can make this request for you.

Deeds of Trust (mortgages) have a position on title based on seniority (1st, 2nd, 3rd). So if a new 1st mortgage wants to go into first position in a refinance transaction but there is already a 2nd mortgage, they must ask the 2nd mortgage to allow them to go ahead of them on title. The 2nd mortgage lender will review the proposed loan, and either approve or deny the request. This is most common when a borrower wants to retain the terms of the 2nd mortgage or they do not have enough equity to borrow a sufficient amount in the new loan to pay off the 2nd mortgage.

Yes, you can refinance --but the question will then be, can you afford the mortgage payments by yourself. If you can, try and work out the best deal, rate wise and closing costs wise, so that you don't have to dip into your pocket too much to refinance this loan. Also, you should wait atleast a year before refinancing if you needed a co-signer/co-borrower if the 1st place.

It depends on how much debt you have, what interest rates this debt carries, what rate your 1st mortgage is at, if you are disciplined enough NOT to incure any more debt once a refinance has occurred. If you have a good interest rate on your home loan I would leave that where it is and consider a closed end home equity loan (typically, these loans would be at a rate a bit higher that convention mortgage rates, plus this loan can be written such a way than repayment is spread over many years, and you only have one payment). If you chose to refinance your home, remember that discipline must be maintained to NOT incure any more unmanagable debt.

This depends on the state and the nature of the second mortgage (purchase, refinance etc.). Once a senior lien (1st mortgage) has foreclosed on the property, the second mortgage holder on a refinance (non-purchase) loan may pursue the borrower for the balance owed. They may take the borrower to court and obtain a judgment against the borrower. While the action the court approves may vary, one of the more common outcomes (if they are successful) is wage garnishment. With the prevalence of bankruptcy filings, monetary recovery is becoming more difficult for lenders to obtain.

In foreclosure proceedings the 1st mortgage gets their money first. Either the 2nd mortgage will have to buy the 1st mortgage entirely and then sell your house or they will have to hope that whoever buys the mortgage at auction, will bid enough to pay them off.

You will then have one mortgage and not two.

The only way would be for the 2nd mortgage holder to "buy out" or "pay off" the 1st mortgage holder. Even then, I believe most states require that the 1st mortgage holder receive notification.

A Home Equity loan is an additional loan from your first and second mortgage. It does not require a refinance process. However, consider if you want to saddle your home with any more debt, given that you may not have much equity. If you are paying PMI, it may also change that position.

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. Tom T.

You cannot get your name off the mortgage unless you refinance. You may be able to have her refinance the home if you sign a note for the difference between what she can finance for and what is owed. You can also contact the first and second lienholders and request a short sale without recourse.

no, not if it is a 1st mortgage. because of the mortgage tax relief act of 2007

You will be able to keep the house provided you keep making the mortgage payments. In a chpt. 13, if the 1st mortgage amount is higher than the house value, you can strip the 2nd mortgage and treat it as an unsecured creditor. If the house value is higher than the 1st mortgage, then you will need to keep paying both mortgages.

No. Leins are non-transferrable. It is possible to take a cashout refinance of the other property to pay the lien in full however. No. Leins are non-transferrable. It is possible to take a cashout refinance of the other property to pay the lien in full however.

well you have to pay 7 mortgages TOTAL!!! 1st mortgage: 19,800 bells 2nd mortgage: 120,000 bells 3rd mortgage: 298,000 bells 4th mortgage: 598,000 bells 5th mortgage: 728,000 bells 6th mortgage: 848,000 bells 7th mortgage: 948,000 bells after this you don't have mortgage anymore!

Home equity loans don't cost you anything unless you use them and only what you use will be charged an interest rate, which is tax deductable. If you have a equity loan you can get cash out at anytime. If your going to refinance a 1st or 2nd mortgage note, you can use that money for cash.Just remember that when you "get cash out" of your home the correct term is that you are borrowing money using your home as collateral. You are not really getting cash out of your home. It's coming from the bank and you may find yourself deeply in debt, unable to make your payments and the bank will take your home.

Yes. There are 2 ways to refer to a mortgage loan: 1) Lien position on the title (1st mortgage, 2nd mortgage) 2) Product type (loan type: 1st mortgage, home equity loan, home equity credit line) If you only need to borrow $10,000 for example, this will not meet the minimum loan amount for a first mortgage with most lenders. Therefore you may obtain a "home equity loan" which is more often used as a second mortgage, but it will be the primary loan on the home.

This is not determined by the number of payments you make, it is determined by how much equity you have in the home. If the home is worth more than the outstanding balance on the mortgage, you may be able to get a second mortgage or home equity line of credit.

You need to find a title attorney, take your wife off title, and add your father to title. Most mortgage companies have seasoning requirements of anywhere between 90-days and 12-months. Go through a mortgage broker and tell them the entire situation. They will find a lender with lower seasoning requirements. A broker may be able to educate you more on the mortgage side but very limited with title issues. Ask him or her their lowest seasoning requirements.
