Hi, I am new to the world of HML so if someone could help me fill in the blanks I would really appreciate it. I am buying some investment property and my subprime mtge company works with hard money lenders. From my understanding the HML will loan me 80% LTV. I will have 2 closings. One with the HML, contingent on the loan (refinance) being approved by the mtge company (2nd closing). This will prevent me from putting any money down. I don’t understand how the HML will help me avoid any money down with the mtge company when he is only loaning me 80%. Also, is he going to own the property until I close with the mtge company?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
