Common Closing Questions

CEMA stands for Consolidated Extension Modification Agreement and is a process specific to the state of NY that allows a borrower on a refinance to reduce the amount of mortgage taxes they are paying. The existing mortgage is rolled into the new mortgage being obtained so that taxes are only paid on the difference. Eligibility for a CEMA will depend upon a number of factors including the current lender/servicer and applicable fees.
If you have a NY refinance and would like to know if it can be consolidated to save money contact us at and our CEMA team will run an analysis for you to show you the potential savings.
