In Minnesota, state law requires you to obtain a certificate from a qualified Refinance Advisor before you can refinance or add a second mortgage to certain types of existing mortgages. Our advisors take the time to compare the terms of your existing mortgage with the new mortgage, and explain how any changes will impact your financial situation.
If you are considering a reverse mortgage, the law requires you participate in Reverse Mortgage Advising with a HUD-Approved Advisor agency in order to ensure you understand this financial tool and the benefits and drawbacks that go with it. We can refer you to a network partner offering this specialized service.
