A mortgage modification refers to a mortgage that the lender changes, or modifies. A refinance is a new mortgage which includes a new loan amount, new interest rate, monthly payment and term.
When a lender wants to keep your mortgage, they will offer a lower rate for the balance of the term you owe. A modification can be successful in many situations, because it doesn’t require title insurance for a lender policy. However, if you want more money, lenders require a refinance. In this situation, you need an experienced Virginia real estate lawyer to represent you and help you get it done correctly.
