Taking Out Co-Borrower Refinance Mortgage Guidelines

Borrowers with non-occupant co-borrowers can refinance their mortgage and drop non-occupant co-borrowers. Homeowners who have an ex-spouse on a mortgage can also refinance their home loans and remove ex-spouse from the mortgage note. There are many instances where ex-spouse demands to have his or her name off the mortgage note. The simple solution is by refinancing current mortgage loan into a new mortgage loan relieving the co-borrower or other borrowers of the new mortgage note.
