HARP REFINANCE REPLACEMENT!  High Loan-to-Value Refinance Option

The High Loan-to-Value (LTV) Refinance loan option provides refinance opportunities to borrowers with existing Fannie Mae mortgages who are making their mortgage payments on time, but whose LTV ratio for a new mortgage exceeds the maximum allowed for standard limited cash-out refinance options.

The High LTV refi option replaces the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), which ended Dec. 31, 2018.

Borrowers must benefit from the refinance in at least one of the following ways:

  1. Reduced monthly principal and interest payment

  2. Lower mortgage rate

  3. Shorter amortization term

  4. More stable mortgage product, such as moving from an adjustable-rate
