@David Holmes are the properties worth more than you paid for them? If so, you can cash out refinance! This would help make the original seller whole, and would also put money back in your pocket. You can generally get 70-80% LTV for 1-4 units, so if the properties have appreciated nicely you could put a nice chunk of cash back into your pocket.
