A home purchase loan includes a closed-end mortgage loan or an open-end line of credit secured by one dwelling and used to purchase another dwelling. For example, if a person obtains a home-equity loan secured by dwelling A to purchase dwelling B, the home-equity loan is a home purchase loan.

Does a refinance and home improvement work the same?

It can be a refinance as long as a dwelling is involved, even if a dwelling A secures the new loan but dwelling B secures the loan being paid off, as long as the loan is to the same borrower?

It can be a home improvement if it is secured by dwelling A but is improving dwelling B?

It can be a home improvement if it is secured by dwelling A but is improving dwelling B?

Yes, provided there is no existing loan secured by dwelling A being refinanced. Under the 2018 rules a refinancing takes precedence over home improvement.
