I bought my home in March of 2003, my mother co-signed for me, but does not live with us or pay on the mortgage. I would like to look into either a refinance or home equity loan, with a goal of perhaps borrowing $ 12-15,000 to pay debts, etc. Is it possible to do this and still maintain the same interest rate and monthly payment? Where would be the best place to inquire about the process, my credit union where I handle the rest of my finances, the company that I have the mortgage with, or an outside company?
No, I did not commit fraud thank you very much. I simply mentioned it in my question in case it made a difference. I’m no expert but I’m sure if it were somehow not legal to have a co-signer that did not reside with you then I would never have gotten the loan in the first place!
