Does the refinancing save more than the new fees and closing costs that a new loan would creat, or do you have a lenderbuzzing these thoughts in your ear?

I'm currently looking to refinance my loan but unable to find a lender that works with co-op buildings. Will you help me find a lending that is willing to refinance my loan?

Yes you can refinance. It is a little more complicated because they need to review the building finances. Mitch Feldman stated was also maybe the best way, call your existing mortgage lender.

Refinancing your coop is not as easy as refinancing a condo or home. It is almost the same fprocedure4 as your purchase of a coop. The Board must agree to the new mortgage. I would check first with the coop managment office to see what they require for a refinance (they often want a full financial disclosure) before going forward.

Dear Earlfamous:

You should start off by calling the customer service number on your mortgage statement and asking them if you can do a reconciliation and consolidation of your mortgage. Also ask them what rate they will give you and figure out how much you will save each month. You will incur some closing costs so you need to calculate how much time it would take you to make back the money you spend in closing costs. Often times you can add the closing costs to your mortgage so you pay nothing out of pocket. Again, you just need to know how much you will save every month and then make an informed decision if it is worth your while.

I refinanced a co-op that I used to own twice. As mentioned, the refinancing of a coop is the same as any other refinance.

Sure you can refinance! The process on the borrowers end does not differ from any other refinance transaction. Feel free to contact me to discuss refinancing options. Call me direct at 347-903-5626 or email egroussman@myhsoa.com

Refinancing will be done through your lender. I wouldn't call it easy but it can be done.
