Mortgage/ Charge Refinancing
Mortgage refinancing is the process of paying off an existing mortgage/ charge and replacing it with a new loan with different terms than the original mortgage/ charge. Refinancing allows a borrower to obtain better interest rate and terms.
Don’t confuses mortgage/ charge refinancing with obtaining second mortgage/ charge, as they are much different. A second mortgage/ charge requires additional encumbrance to be registered on title in addition to your first mortgage/ charge. A second mortgage/ charge does not replace the first one. A mortgage refinancing, on the other hand, replaces your existing mortgage/ charge, with a new one with better terms and/ or interest rate.
For borrowers with a perfect credit history, refinancing can be a good way to convert a variable loan rate to a fixed with a lower interest rate with better terms. Borrowers with less than perfect, or even bad credit, or too much debt, refinancing can be risky.
Since refinancing a mortgage/ charge can bring about various legal issues, it is highly recommended that legal representation be obtained.
