Refinancing with no increase in mortgage balance

It is recommended that you review your mortgage at least once a year in ensure you are getting the best possible rate. Although many mortgages are locked in, there are those that can benefit from being refinanced into a lower interest rate. This is accomplished by breaking your current mortgage, paying out the pre-payment penalties and then locking in at a better rate.
