First of all, there is no reason for the broker to “jerk” you around. If anything, this will hinder the broker’s getting paid. When you did your last refinance, the lender probably got your second lien holder to subordinate their lien to the new first. Look on page 1 of your HUD-1, right column, about half way down, and see if it indicates the second lien was paid in full at that time. Then, look in your title policy and see if it reflects the second lien. If it does not indicate a second lien, you should contact the title company that issued the policy.
