What is the home loan subordination policy in Florida?


As of September 2004, the following subordination policy items have to be considered for a home loan subordination to take place in Florida:

  • Only one home loan subordination is allowed per borrower per loan;
  • Reason of loan subordination is usually a refinance transaction;
  • The new interest rate has to be compared to the initial rate;
  • Cash-out refinance is not allowed except for critical home improvements and repairs;
  • 1 year seasoning is required;
  • No additional debt can be included in the refinanced mortgage except amounts needed for home improvements;
  • Mortgage loan subordination requests must be submitted at least some 10 days prior to the new mortgage closing date.
