If you already have an existing agreement with a Texas property tax lender and decide you would like to switch to a new lender, this can be done, depending on the current status of your loan.
Suppose you have already paid off a property tax loan and find yourself in arrears on your taxes again. In that case, you can simply approach any tax lender with your request, as you will have no obligations to your prior lender.
If, however, you are still in the course of paying off your existing tax loan, the process can be a little more challenging. Depending on your circumstances, a lien transfer may be required from the existing lender, or in some cases, the existing lender may be paid off without their consent. Each situation is done on a case by case basis for which you need the help of your new lender. The process from your side, however, with the exception of needing to obtain a payoff from the existing lender, isn’t much different than obtaining any other property tax loan.
Why would you want to change property tax lenders in the first place? The truth is that not all Texas property tax lenders are the same. Some offer better services, better terms, and more agreeable repayment terms than others. Some are better established and reliable, too. If you have been working with a particular tax lender, you are well within your rights to pay off your lender. If you are unhappy with your current interest rate or feel that you are being treated unfairly, you should move to another provider that meets your expectations. However, it is better to do your homework before entering an agreement with any lender, including a property tax lender. Always do a background check and make sure that the tax lender has a 5 star Google rating, a good BBB track record, and is a member of the Texas Property Tax Lienholders’ Association. This is an indication of their trustworthiness, commitment to ethics, and standing in the industry.
