What exactly is a Re-Cast?


Mortgage recasting is a form of prepaying your mortgage. To recast your loan, you'll simply make a lump-sum payment towards the balance. Your lender will then re-amortize the loan over the remaining term, using the smaller balance, which will reduce the monthly payment. Although your loan has been recast, you'll retain the same interest rate and loan term. Most lenders will only allow you to re-cast your loan one time during the life of the loan.
