  1. Appraiser guy says:
    No such thing as renewing a mortgage. You can only refinance and yes you have fees to do this.
  2. Woof says:
    In the U.S., there is no such thing as “renewal” of a mortgage loan. You can always “pay down” your loan by making additional payments to the principal.
  3. the kid says:
    Renewing a mortgage doesn’t exist. Refinancing does, and yes you pay for it.

    Pay it down faster by adding money to each payment.

    They are not the same thing (renewing, refinancing).

    You have some options if you would really like to pay your mortgage faster and this would include increasing your payments, lump sum payments, increase or add more payment schedules, shorten the time frame of the loan and of course refinancing.

    All have their corresponding added responsibilities. Try consulting a professional or someone who knows more on this.

    The amount of fee’s vary and would be dependent on (not limited to) attorney fee’s, loan application fee, title search, appraisal fee, land survey fee etc.

    Bottom line is, if you are really able and ready to pay your mortgage earlier than agreed upon.

    I hope you find the right alternative.
