Need help finding a bank in SoCal to refi a rental with an ADU

7 Replies | Los Angeles County, California

A friend recently shared with me that she is having a really hard time finding a bank who will refinance a rental property that she ownes in Monrovia, California. 

The property has an ARV of 650k

She has a first position loan for 84K and a second for 55k

Family income is 130k

She has been told by a couple of banks that because the rental has a second property on it (ADU - 1 bed 1 bath) and it's a rental, that she can't get it refinanced. That doesn't make sense to me, but most of my real estate is in Arizona so I don't have many bank/lender contacts in California.

I would love to hear from anyone with any suggestions to help my friend.

I am going to invite some of my Southern California colleagues into this discussion for some help. I tried to do it in private messaging but It was shut down as spam. So if any of you could share a contact, that would would be great.

@Shiloh Lundahl There are some guidelines which has to met to fund the loan. If its not fit in those guidelines that's where may be she is facing problem.  I have send you some information.   

I replied to the private thread, but just in case I will respond here as well. We have refinanced our multi a few times using a mortgage broker. PM me and I can share his contact info.
