Financing in Highlands Ranch>Question Details

Carol Hughett, Other/Just Looking in Highlands Ranch, CO

I'm trying to refinance my home, but I have 4 other mortgages on rental properties.

Asked by Carol Hughett, Highlands Ranch, CO Thu Apr 9, 2009

Chase said I can't refi because I have 1 too many mortgages. Is this going to change soon?

how big is the loan size you are looking for?
How many total other mortgages? (is it just 4 or are there more?)
There are definitely many scenarios we can work with on this but need to know more than just the basic question you have to answer properly.

Citi's guidelines pertaining to your scenario are below:

"In general, there is no restriction on the number of properties a borrower can own when the subject property is a primary residence, however, if the subject property is a second home or investment property, the borrower may not have a combined total of more than four (4) residential properties financed (this applies to either a single lender or several different lenders). Joint ownership in residential real estate is considered the same as total ownership of an individual property and therefore is subject to the same restriction. This restriction does not include loans on commercial real estate or multifamily dwellings with more than four units)."

Chase and GMAC will only permit four total properties financed. It matters with whom you place the loan, though we should see uniformity on this soon, and the number should reinstate to max 10 properties financed.

If I can be of service, please let me know.

Best regards,

I experiences the same issue, we were trying to refi our primary home with a LTV of 50% and could not get a loan because we had four rental with mortgages, even though they are all rented!
We still have not been able to get it done.
Good Luck.

Hi Carol
To my knowledge this is a Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac guideline implemented this year that prohibits you from having more than 4 mortgages with the same lender. I heard they were changing this but have not gotten confirmation yet. If Chase won't work with you contact another bank like Countrywide or Bank of America

Are you trying to refinance your primary home or one of the investment properties?
