Can't speak for Mississippi, but have seen it done elsewhere. I just had a client who couldn't refi because their business lender had put (with borrower's consent) a 70K lien on their home to secure a business loan. Unfortunately, the commercial lender didn't inform my client that the lien could (and did!) affect their ability to refinance (or sell) their home.
