New York, NY (PressExposure) August 19, 2009 -- There are lenders that specialize in providing bad credit mortgage refinance to consumers that have a less than perfect credit rating. Although, there are increased costs when it comes to financing borrowers that have lower credit ratings, a little research can yield a competitive interest rate. These borrowers are grouped into a category of higher risk lenders and are therefore charged these increased fees.
Should you refinance a mortgage with bad credit through your regular bank or find a company that specializes in bad credit refinancing?
Experts recommend that you should first contact your traditional lender, the lender that holds the contract with your original mortgage. Despite the credit rating, this lender may be able to pull some strings based on the history that has been created through the first mortgage. One of the best ways to overcome any discrepancies on the credit report is to first establish a relationship and history with the lender. After this history has been established it can help to give you future competitive interest rates when it comes to refinancing the mortgage.
On the other hand, the traditional lender may offer a high rate if there has been a change in the credit rating since the original terms of the mortgage. With many lenders, these terms are assigned specific terms for this reason. If there is a change in the credit rating, despite positive history being established with the lender, you may be charged a higher interest rate through the terms of the refinancing.
Choosing the other option and refinancing the home through a company that specializes in mortgage refinance with bad credit lending can mean that you are going to pay extra fees, on top of those fees that are already charged through the term of the loan. When calculating the finance payments, be sure to ask about any fees that are going to be involved in this process and determine when these fees must be paid to the lender.
