Docs Required to Lower Interest Rate on Loan

Answered by: 

Question: 
Is documentation required to lower the interest rate on an existing consumer loan not secured by RE?
Answer: 

You'll need some type of legal agreement (or at least the customer should want it). You could do a modification agreement instead of a whole new note, however. Refer to Regulation Z Section 1026.20(a) for the rules about modification vs. refinancings.
