What does it mean that my mortgage was charged off? Do I have to move? Who owns the house? I was told that they are not planning to put into a foreclosure. They asked me for a settlement amount.

My ex-husband and I on a mortgage and deed together. He abandoned myself and my son in 2007, and I have been paying for the house. Tried to refinance into my name, but couldn't get approved. He now has a case with the court, and I do not want to ruin my credit since I have been making all payments on time. What can we do??

Me and my fiancee are in a bit of a mess. He is not working as much right now due to not enough work going on so the only income is mine which is not enough. Our 2 yr fix rate will be up April 2009 so getting very scared. We are having a hard time getting people to help us either refinance or anything. We talked to our mortgage company and they seem hopeless. We owe more on our house then what is worth. Is there anywhere we can go that can help us? Pretty much have given up.

September 2011 is the 5th year of our 5 year ARM mortgage. Our Plan A: buy a new home with a fixed rate then keep our old home as long as we can (family will rent it) in case we will be able to refinance it before 2011. Disadvantage: With this economy, its very unsure. We need to save also. It would be hard paying for two houses. Plan B: Get a new home with with a fixed rate then let go (foreclose) of our old home. Is plan B "illegal"? will that put us in trouble of taking advantage of the situation? Or is it totally okay giving us a chance not to be under water when our mortgage will shoot up to the roof? We just want to be safe in this economy. We don't want to get stuck and wait for our mortgage to balloon with our ARM mortgage. We've been trying to have it refinanced but it's been really impossible.

Asked 09/19/2008 12:08 pm CT (Sacramento, CA)

This one is bad ... at least for me. We have several mortgages on the house we're living in. The house was purchased on a 80/20 with zero down at the peak of the market for $670K. The first is $540K, the second is $130K. Shortly after that we got an equity line from Bank of America for $210K to start landscaping at what not. At that time the house appraised for nearly $900K. Being adjustable the payment went OUT OF SIGHT last November. I stupidly figured as a stop gap I could borrow against the HELOC to make the payment. Well the rest is history ... although the payment which adjusted first in November (OUT OF SIGHT) came back to more normality in May (the next adjust is November 08). Now the HELOC has been shut off by Bank of America (at about $180K) and we are $3K short per month. I think I'm out of options as I've been pulling a rabbit out the hat for months. What should I do?? I'm considering not paying Bank of America and second for a period to keep us a float. Calling them (various lenders) to see if they'll work some type of solution. Praying for salvation ... etc. In this mix I actually have another home which is not upside down. Which we are renting out (with a payment we can afford). I'm guessing the various lenders can't touch that home ... so we're considering evicting the tenants, stopping paying the others and moving back there. Any pointers or insights you could provide would be helpfull. I can't pull money from anywhere and am down to the point where we'd be Bankrupt if I made the next months payments (read broke). I also owe $11K in tax on the problem home. I didn't pay that to enable myself to meet the mortgage for a 3 extra months. Thanks in advance.

My husband and I own a townhome (with a mortgage) We have had some credit problems recently, but have gotten it mostly cleared up. We would like to be able to move into a home with a yard since we have a toddler, and a surprise baby on the way. Is there anyway we can trade homes? Can we get a foreclosed home for what we owe on our townhome and just trade it? So we can keep the same mortgage, payments, and not have to re apply for a loan? Im pretty sure there isnt but thought I would ask. Thank you!

I filed Bankruptcy, and the mortgage company was supposed to foreclose on my house,my guess is because it had roof damage, ect. I got a letter saying that they charged it off and cancelled the sale. I know I can live in it and rent it out, but can't sell it until they release the deed. I don't want to put alot of money into it if they can come back again. How do I get them to release the deed? or can they come back after they charged it off? Homeless

My late husband bought a mobile home in 1998. I was not listed on the mortgage nor did I sign anything with regard to the purchase of this home. There was no land or any other type of collateral put up against this home. He died in 2004 and shortly after I moved from the mobile home. The mortgage company repossessed the home and sold it at auction. Now they want the estate of my deceased husband to pay the remaining balance (2 years after they sold it). My husband did not have a will. Can they hold me responsible for this money?
