Refinance Closings in Florida

Sarasota Real Estate Attorneys

Refinancing your mortgage on your home can be a great way to lower your payments, lower your rate or shorten your payment schedule. Renegotiating the terms under which you will repay your debt is not simple, however, and numerous terms and conditions will come into effect during this process, some of which may not be under your direct control.

If you are thinking about refinancing your home, but don’t know where to even begin, an experienced real estate closing lawyer from The Edwards Law Firm, PL in Sarasota can help you.

The Refinance Closing Process

Once you are approved for a new loan by your lender, you have the right to select the Closing Agent. The Closing Agent will work closely with the new lender to satisfy the requirements of the new loan. At closing, the Closing Agent will review the new loan documents with you to explain the important terms. Providing signatures may be as easy as the flick of the wrist but it is of the utmost importance that you understand each sheet you are signing, so it is highly recommended you have your own attorney present at the closing process as well.

The three primary documents you will likely be seeing are:

  • Closing Disclosure: The Closing Disclosure is the summary of all of the charges incurred at the refinance closing. Under Federal Law, the final Closing Disclosure (or "CD" for short) needs to be delivered to the borrower no less than three business days prior to the closing.
  • Mortgage: The Mortage is the document recorded in the Official Records of the County and is the document that places a lien against your property to provide security for the repayment of the new loan.
  • Promissory note: The Note is the "IOU" or the document in which you promise to pay the loan back to the lender.
