You might try to do a loan modification. Ask your bank if they would be open to that. You are not trying to pull money out right? You just want to fix the rate in a 30 year mortgage?

Pay off what debt? Credit card debt?

Are you looking to do a Cash out refinance? In an investment property I will hardly see it only if LTV (loan to value) is low enough for a lender to take the risk.

You could try to do a Loan Modification to lower the monthly paymet and have some extra income to pay your personal debt but other than that, I do not think a cash out refinance might work out.

In today's mortgage markets you will be difficult to refinance and cash out. What is the property worth? How much do you owe on it? How much extra do you want to take? On a home you live in the want 20% equity on an investment property anywhere from 25-30% equity.
