Asked 01/17/2010 04:59 pm CT (Canton, OH)

My husband and I would like to get out of renting. In the last 5 years, our rent has gone up $90! Our problem is that my husband\'s job is unstable. By that I mean, he could get moved really far away. I REALLY don\'t think that this is going to happen, but the threat is still there. If we were to buy a home, and he were to get moved far away (enough that we\'d need to move to be together), can we sighn over the house to the bank with little or no problems? We\'d be up to date on the mortgage payments, we wouldn\'t be behind on anything, coudl that be a possibility? Or are we doomed to be at the mercy of landlords until he gets enough seniority under his belt and the threat of him getting moved is gone.

I am preparing tax return and looking a 1098 in Box 1 has $61,000 of mortgage interest but in the detail of payments has only about $20,000K of interest. The house was sold during year and mortgage paid off - around $485K balance on loan and it was a Conv Jumbo PayOption ARM..Question: Why the difference and is the $60K of interest correct. Thanks.

My wife and i got a chapter 7 discharge . We reaffirmed the first mortgage but not the second one . the second one was a 125 % LTV . If we can't make the payments on the second one . will they foreclose on the house ? we owe 89000 on first and 34000 on the second and the house is worth around 105000 ? Would they pursue a foreclosre that they would most likely not gain anything back from ?

My husband purchased a property in north las vegas a few years ago with a friend. The house went into foreclosure. My question is, can the bank come after me even though I am not on the mortgage or the deed? We were married when he purchased it.

I have filed chapter 7 and should receive a discharge soon. I included as surrender all three mortgages. My first mortgage lender has offered me a modification to sign now before the discharge, not reaffirmation just signing new modification. If the house was to foreclosure, there is not enough money to pay the second or third liens. Am I legally obligated to pay the first mortgage if I sign this modification and lets say the 2nd decides to foreclose would I have to pay any money to the first? I dont plan on paying the second or third mortgages.

I was recently told when attempting to refinance my home including a second mortgage, that the second mortgage had never been recorded with the courthouse and that the courthouse had no record of it. In order to start the subordination process with mortgage 2, i first have to figure out this \"not recorded issue\". Where do I start and how do you fix this??

My husband and I have owned out home for 13 years. It is our primary residence. Last November, 2009 we refinanced consolidate our 1st and 2nd mortgages and to pay off credit card debt. Our credit was poor at the time and we received a 11.33% interest rate on the new loan. They told us that if we could keep on the mortgage payments and not incrue any new debt, they would refinance us Nov 2010. Since then they have closed all their branches and are no longer taking any new business which included refinancing their current clients. We currently owe $158K with a payment of $1,760 per month plus a 5% prepay penalty estamated value of the home is $166k. if we refinance or sell before November 2011. The currently mortgage company states that they have chosen not to participate in the Obamha Stimulas package. We have been playing the pay them late but just in time game for month and we can\\\'t keep it up any longer. On Sept 30,2009 we will hit our first 30 days past due.

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.

Asked 08/23/2009 11:10 am CT (Germantown, TN)

My daughter and her husband are separated - he left the house about 4 months ago. He has not given her any support since he left. They have a house with a loan of approximately $322,000 - a mortgage payment of $2,200 principle and interest only. The tax appraisal on the house is near the load amount. Taxes and insurance would add approximately $500 more per month. She has been laid off from her job and has applied for unemployment - should draw about $230 unemployment pay plus $1500 per month child support ($750 after 9 more months as the oldest child will turn 18). Husband is self employed but tells her that his business is down and he is now only drawing one pay check per month ($500 net). He also works part time and makes approximately $1,200 per month. Medical insurance for him and my daughter currently comes out of the part time money ($100 per month). He has told her that he will take her off the insurance in December. He also just purchased a new care through the clunker campaign. My daughter's name is on the deed to the property but not on the mortgage. She has managed to keep the payments current until this month but she can no longer pay the full amount. When she contacted the mortgage company regarding a loan modification she was told that they did not qualify because they were not behind on their payments. She was told that she should try to refinance and try to sell the house even if it was a short sale. Husband wants to let the house foreclose - she does not - he has not agree to put it up for sale. Questions are: 1. Does he have to agree to put the house up for sale or can she do it on her own? 2. Does foreclosure affect her credit? 3. Does she have any obligation to pay the mortgage payment? He continuously tells her that she is as responsible for the payment as he is since her name is on the deed. 4. The loan company told her that foreclosure proceedings would not begin until the payments were three months behind. Is that true? In other words, if she makes a partial payment, say $1,000 per month, will the house ever go into foreclosure? She wants to do the right thing but needs whatever assistance is available to her - what are her options? This is a case of someone not being able to afford the amount of money that was loaned to him.

Asked 07/01/2009 05:25 pm CT (Orlando, FL)

My ex and I are expected at court on Monday 7/6 regarding a Summary Judgement for our 2nd Mtg. We have a 1st with Countrywide and the 2nd with Wachovia. We have not been able to make pymts on the 1st for 14 months and the and none on the 2nd for the last year because we both became unemployed and have since divorced. My ex is still living in the home and the 1st Mtg Lender is still waiting for him to get a job so he can possibly do a modification etc. The 2nd Mortgage lender is taking us to court for non-payment. We have had the home on the market from the beginning trying to sell or short sale and no takers. What exactly can happen to us when we see the Judge on Monday. The house has not foreclosed yet on the 1st mortgage we have not even heard from them. Can the 2nd Mtg lender put a judgement on us for the $62,000.00 owed even though the 1st mtg lender supercedes? Please advise. Also with the declining market the 1st mortgage would not even be satisfied even if the house sold today. So what happens exactly. Since we are unemployed we do not have any resources for pymt of legal advice that is why I am asking. Please help!

I have scores of 513, 560, and 548. I am currently trying to clean up the CB scores and expect this to improve somewhat. My husband has 568, 580, and 598. We have an income of 76,000 per year, i have been employed 2 years, him 1 and a half. We have had no late payments this year. We have only student loans as debt, but its about 50,000 between the two of us, the payments around 345 between us per month. We have a landlord willing to write a letter that we have been on time every month, can show statements of our electric, phone, and cell bills, all current for the past year. We have a down payment of 3500, and we have closing costs. We want to buy a house in our neighborhood for 158,000. any chance we can do this PRIOR to the end of the year???

Asked 06/03/2009 05:10 pm CT (New Bedford, MA)

my wife purchased a home through a nonconventional loan prior to our marrige in 2007 basically the hight of the market, mortgage and deed both in her name only. Due to the economy we have gotten behind a bit on the mortgage which has caused her some credit issues, my credit is still good. We wanted to refiance but were told my name had to be listed on the deed before they could do this for us. We filed the paper work to list me 45 days ago and have just found out today they will not refinance with us because we have lost so much equity in the house, upside down almost 50,000. Being this far behind we are almost ready to just let it go or possibly try a short sale and start over again with something much smaller and more affordable. will i no longer qualify for an FHA loan in my name now because of the deed status, and also if this is the case is there a way to reverse it, kinda like a nullification period where it has only been 45 days since the addition of my name? any answer or advice is greatly appreciated, thank you
