Mortgaging & Refinancing

What does it mean to refinance your mortgage?

A refinance means replacing your existing mortgage with a new one. This is done to allow a borrower to obtain a better interest term and rate. For someone with good credit history, a refinance can be a good way to convert a variable loan rate to a fixed as well as obtaining a lower interest rate. However, there are risks if someone with bad credit or too much debt is looking to refinance. With possible high interest rates and an unstable economy, it is easier to default in mortgage payments. If you find yourself in this possible scenario, it may be time to consider refinancing, however, without the necessary information and knowledge, it may actually hurt you to refinance. At Doss Law, we can assess every situation and give sound advise on whether or not it is in your best interest to refinance your home.

A mortgage is a loan secured by property that helps you purchase your home that you pay off over time. You will be paying down the principal, the price your borrowed, plus interest. At Doss law, we communicate with your lender and insure your mortgage is registered correctly. It is very rare in this economy to purchase a home without borrowing money from either a bank or a private lender. As one of the biggest aspects of purchasing a home, arranging a mortgage with a trusted lender is a vital step in the real estate process.

  • One-on-one consultations with a lawyer
  • Review of the mortgage commitment and the lender’s instructions
  • Preparation of all legal documents for closing

The terms of a real estate transaction must be property memorialized in the agreement of purchase and sale in order for them to be legally binding. Lawyers make sure that the contract you signed adheres to all the laws set in place as well as addresses any specific issues that might affect the future use of the property. There can be snags that may be preventing you from obtaining clean title on your property or any other obstacles, Doss Law can assist you in sorting out any issues that may rise to the surface.
