What is mortgage refinance?
Mortgage refinance explained
If your current mortgage is coming to the end of its term you have a few choices and refinancing is one of them. A mortgage refinance is when you take out a mortgage for more than they currently owe on your mortgage. This gives you more access to the cash equity in your home. The mortgage amount is increased and the cash that is left over sent directly to you.
Mortgage refinancing is the process of entering a new mortgage term whether with the same bank/lender or with another. Mortgage refinancing consist of paying a penalty, if breaking a closed mortgage mid term. There is not penalty for refinancing a mortgage at the maturity date, as the exist mortgage term expires.
