This is your parent's mortgage loan. The mortgage interest rate will remain the same on these mortgages throughout the term of the mortgage for the original borrower.
In some instances, refinancing your current mortgage loan can help you lower your mortgage payment. Borrowers can borrow against the equity built up in their home at a lower cost than they can from other sources. Like most mortgage interest, another benefit to mortgage refinancing is that if you pay off credit cards, the interest you pay will now be tax deductible.
