Question by cookingmomma: Can a first mortgage be refinanced to a lower rate if there is also an existing second mortgage?
If a homeowner has a first mortgage and a second mortgage, and would like to refinance the first mortgage at different terms, can this be accomplished – does the existing second mortgage put a monkey-wrench in refinancing the first?

Normally you roll them both together. You can get better rates on a 1st than a 2nd.
