Do I Need a Lawyer to Refinance or Increase My Mortgage?

Mortgage refinancing involves creating a new mortgage loan by modifying your existing terms. Many homeowners seek to refinance their mortgage as a way to help lower their current interest rates or reduce monthly payments. While refinancing your mortgage may be an exciting prospect, it can be a fairly complex transaction and you are likely to benefit from the legal advice provided by a real estate lawyer.

How a Lawyer Can Help You with Your Mortgage Refinance

When it comes to refinancing or increasing your mortgage, you will need to consult with a real estate lawyer who can review your mortgage terms and make any necessary adjustments for you. Here are a few important reasons why you need a real estate lawyer to refinance or increase your mortgage:

  • Lawyers identify and explain fine print details including terms and conditions.
  • Lawyers help sort through all your paperwork and facilitate all transactions.
  • Lawyers register your new mortgage electronically.
  • Lawyers perform property title searches to check for financial liens.
