If a full refinance can be obtained with a first mortgage security this would be advisable. Most clients who set up caveat loans are in need of funds urgently to avoid a bankruptcy, major credit issues, loss of business etc. where the cost of set up and eventual exit is far more beneficial that the other alternatives.
