Asked 09/14/2009 12:48 pm CT (Chicago, IL)

I was engaged to my husband in 2001. In August 2002 moved into a home. We both paid money at the closing. However my name was never put on the deed or the mortgage. We were married in August 2003. Since then the house has been refinanced 3 times because of my husband's credit card debt. The initial loan was for $109K and is now $192K. In 2007 when we refinanced I signed a homestead waiver, if for any reason he could not pay the mortgage I did not want to be held responsible for the mortgage. He is now in debt again and I am considering a divorce. Even though my name is not on the mortgage or deed and I signed a homestead waiver, do I lose all rights to the property.

My husband and I both owned homes prior to marriage, intended to sell his but cannot. We bought a home together, I am the sole person on the mortgage loan of our joint home but he is on the title. Our circumstances have dramatically changed and can no longer afford his home. I am not on the mortgage or title as he bought this two years before we were married in Jan. His home was never refinanced and is the original loan. We paid 15% down on the current home but likely have very little equity. If he forecloses on his home, will it affect my credit? Also, can they put a lien on the current home for which he is on the title but not on the loan? Thank you so much.

We own two houses in New York (His & Mine prior to marriage) One is paid for with a home equity loan 45K, the other has a small mortgage 43K and a Atruim Villa in Florida four years ago for 190K - we owe 155K its on the market for only what we owe & not selling. With out my income we can't afford all our mortages, taxes and association fee's - If we walk away from Florida would the bank come after our homes in Florida that we listed as assets on the mortgage? Are we better off to stop borrowing money and allow it to fall into foreclouse or try to give deed back?

Feel free to email me back. My question is: I have accumulated a total debt of approximately $60k with a net worth of roughly -$16k. The debts are with numerous companies for numerous reasons including credit cards, auto loans, student loans, etc. What I want to know is, with the current foreclosure market being like it is and so many homes being "dumped" so cheaply and under value, is it possible to find a home with a built-in equity to purchase that I can turn around and finance my other debts into the equity on the mortgage loan? I would consider it the opportunity to buy a home, while also "consolidating" my debts into the remaining equity of the home and reducing my number of payments and overall payment amount. Does this sound like a realistic and possible scenario that can be pursued?

First I must say that you do not have the city I live in on your list so I just picked one. Anyway here is my situation. I need to refinance my home to lower my payment, repair my roof and lower my interest rate and I have done everything that I have been asked to do. I have a manufactured home and land appraised at 75,000. My credit is good and I actually pass FHA inspection and have released the title to my home. The only problem I run into is there is no properties such as mine that have sold in the past two years. Now I do live in the smallest county in PA we only have 5300 people and sales are a little slower. There are a lot of manufactured homes being purchased as they are affordable for folks but no one is selling. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do. I am struggling to maintain my house payment the way it is and am afraid I will have to let it go back. The current lender will not consider refinancing the loan. Do you have any suggestions?

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 obtained a mortgage in 8/05. It is an ARM and I have a second mortgage so that I did not have to have PMI. In 7/07 my husband died without any benefits. He had recently lost his job and started a new one, but wasn't eligible for benefits at the time of his death. I have struggled to pay all of these expences that his death has incurred. I am to the point that I can no longer stay in this house....Emotionally, I am a miserable wreck when I am there. I need a way out!! Due to the recent decreased value of homes in my area, my Current Appraised value of my home is less than my 2 mortgages. What options do I have? What happens is I allow voluntary forclosure? Will either mortgage company be able to sue me or place a judgement on me. I know my credit will be ruined, but at this point, my health and over all well being means much more to me than my credit rating. What can I do? [Lee, Waxahachie TX]

I am in the process of selling my home in a minority area of Houston that has been plagued with foreclosures and short sales. Unfortunatly, most homes aren't even covering the loan amount in the sale and I'm worried. I will be relocating to another city and must sale. However, I have credit score of about 700 and have never been late on a payment. How will this effect me for getting a house within the next 2 years or a car? Is it possible for a credit score not to drop 80-100 pts? Is moving to another city due to family even considered a hardship? I can't afford to pay for 2 places at 1 time, so if they don't approve me for a short sale, the house will probably go into foreclosure? Do you know of a home advisor, CPA, attorney that doesn't charge a huge fee to discuss my specific financial situation in Houston? Thanks.

Asked 02/24/2008 05:25 am CT (Thomasville, GA)

I have tried, unsuccessfully, to find someone to refinance my 2001 Homestead 16x80 mobile home. It is financed through Greentree with a variable interest rate (presently 14.625). Greentree will not refinance nor will they consider financing for anyone wanting to purchase this home. I tried to sell it but found that, due to the amount owed on it (roughly $27,000)it makes more sense to buy a new home than to buy this one. I have a good tenant living in it who wants to buy it herself but her credit is poor. I have a chapter 7 bankruptcy which was discharged in November 2005. My fico scores are right under 600. I am desperate to find someone to refinance this home on a fixed interest rate so that the payment will be more affordable and predictable. The current payment is $374.89 and she must also pay $150.00 lot rent. If the payment continues to rise, I will lose my tenant. No one seems willing to take a chance on refinancing for me although I have a good job I have been working for 6 years, with a decent salary (appx. $35,000/yr). I just got a promotion and will be moving in the next week or so to start my new job. I would love to get this mobile home refinanced (or financed for my tenant) before I go. Does anyone know of a mortgage company who would refinance for me?
