Justipedia explains No Cash Out Refinance
In a legal sense, the option of pursuing a no cash out refinance can be done to lessen debt burden by showing that equity is built up and for the potential of having a greater position if liquidation or bankruptcy is a future possibility that is trying to be avoided. This is a way of legally repairing a credit rating in order to potentially take out another loan.
