3 Issues That May Come Up During A Refinance

by | Jun 28, 2016 | Real Estate Closings

Refinancing a home can be a really big task that has the potential to get complicated quickly. There are many different reasons a homeowner might want to refinance from wanting to lower the interest rate on the loan, remove the PMI, or receive an infusion of cash to improve the house. Even in the case of a refinance, an attorney is required for many of the aspects involved with the closing in South Carolina. Contacting a closing attorney early in your refinance process may be beneficial. Let’s take a look at what these issues are and why you might want to call De Bruin Law Firm for assistance during your refinance.

Timeliness

Whether buying a new home or refinancing your existing home, having all of the evaluations and paperwork complete by specific deadlines is essential. What can happen is banks will continue to ask for current paperwork as they push out your refinance up to even 90 days. If your bank is giving you the run around, it could be beneficial to bring in a real estate attorney to protect your investment and time.

Low Appraisal

Receiving a low appraisal can also be a really big problem when refinancing. The appraisal dictates what the bank is willing to do in terms of relieving you of the PMI or cashing out for improvements. There are several steps that can be taken to escalate this problem, which is often why you need to consult with a real estate lawyer.

Negotiations

Having a good attorney on your side means that if things escalate, negotiations need to happen. A real estate lawyer can help avoid disputes and protect the borrower’s rights throughout the process. If you’re thinking about getting your home refinanced contact Bryan De Bruin at the De Bruin Law Firm to handle you closing.
