The first thing you should do in order to begin your mortgage search is to obtain a free online or a county-sponsored open mortgages quote. This will allow you to find out what your new monthly payments will be and will help you identify any liens or judgments that may not be included on your mortgage refinance application. You will also receive an “estimate of the cost” of your mortgage. The interest rate may change between the estimate and the final contract.
If you have never done a mortgage search before, then you should not use the tabbed interface. This can cause you to miss some valuable information about your mortgage options. Tabbed interface provides you with four ads for four different lenders for your mortgage related information search tool. You will need to click on each of the four ads to access the specific information on each lender.
Each mortgage related information search tool requires input of the information you want. You must type in the criteria that you are looking for in order to generate your mortgage calculator. The mortgage calculator will return an answer with all of the relevant information that you are looking for. You will get a list with all of the relevant loan terms, interest rates, loan amounts and all of the fees and penalties that may be attached to your loan. You will get other input that you can use to modify the criteria and parameters of the mortgage calculator.
If you have already done a mortgage search and you are still stuck, then you should try contacting your county recorder. Contacting the recorder directly will allow you to find out if there are any liens or judgments that have been recorded against the property. Some counties do not automatically share this information with the public. Other counties make this data available through a requested service. The county recorder’s office can be contacted online, by mail, by phone or in person.
Tax liens are a serious issue and must be dealt with accordingly. The first step is to contact your state tax commission. The state tax commission can give you a copy of the filed federal income tax with attachments for the home. You should review this information with your accountant or tax preparer to determine what kind of adjustments are required to your tax return based on the type of mortgage.
If you are trying to file electronic forms, you should also go through your county clerk’s office carefully. Every other document for all property types (other than single family residences) has to be enclosed with a separate block of text on the same line. The front of this block of text is called the “attorney’s fee” while the back cover is called the “procedure fee”. Your clerk’s office might not accept e-tax forms as valid documents unless they are enclosed in this same block of text. Therefore, you will have to make sure that all of the necessary paperwork is included in these electronic forms.
The procedure fee covers the cost of preparing this additional lot of forms. This may include a certified public attorney (or his or her assistant) to prepare this additional block of paper. The new form must be attached at the bottom of the original, and not included on the top of the new sheet. If you accidentally forget to attach the additional statement to your return, then this could cause your filing to be rejected because you are not including the correct statement at the bottom of the form.
The second step is to prepare an affidavit of trust. This is a sworn statement by the trustee that provides information sufficient to prove your ownership of the property being mortgaged. This affidavit of trust must accompany the completed mortgage (the second page of attached paper), along with a signature pad that is signed on the appropriate form. This affidavit of trust must then be attached to the second page of the attachment of the mortgage.
