Asked 09/18/2009 12:05 am CT (Los Angeles, CA)

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.

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. We have found a rental house to move into but what are our options for getting out of this home and the mortgage. How will the options affect our credit? is one worse than the other. What are the tax implimintations? Thanks, Cathi

I have 2 mortagages one on my primary residence of about $580,000.00 on a house worth about 1,000,000.00. The second on a Lake house of about $550,000.00 on a house worth about 1,300,000.00. Our rate is 6.5 on a 10 year interest only loan. We were told by our banker that mortgages over $400,000.00 could not legally qualify for an interest rate lower than we have. Our credit is very good. My question is: Is this true? If so, why? If not, were can I get the best rate for my loan? Would a credit union be a viable answer? I know that is more than one question however, I hope you can help me. Thanks, Barry Grubb

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.

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 have been divorced 5.5 years. I have a 1st mortgage (171,000, 30 year, 6.25%) and a second (21,000, 15 year, 8.5%) still in my name with my ex-wife. I signed a quit claim deed to the property during our divorce. She has been 30 to 60 days late on both mortgages almost the entire 5.5 years. She has dropped my credit below 600 becuase of this. She is now going to stop paying the second mortgage because she thinks nothing will happen to her and I will have to pay. What should I do?

We had co-signed a mortgage on a mobile home, the other party quit paying about seven years ago, so we had to pay the mortgage on it all of this time. We have a home which we own and sometimes it is hard paying both mortgages. It is not being rented out at the present time. Someone told us just to let the bank reposes it. Cant this ruin our credit? and cant they go after the home in which we reside?

My husband and I got divorced. The divorce decree stated I needed to get a mortgage to refinance within 90 days after the final decree. I did get a mortgage. In the process of getting the mortgage I found that my ex had me taken off the mortgages, first and second. He quick deded the property over to me and I am now in the process of getting a warranty deed onthe property. I want to refinance the first mortgage without the second mortgage being involved. I never signed any papers to be taken off the mortgages. I don't know how he did that. Can the second mortgage still hold the property as collateral since he took me off that loan and the property has been quick deeded to me?

I have a first mortgage and a second mortgage on my condo. My condo is worth less than the two mortgages together. I recently lost my job and will not be able to make both payments. What happens if they foreclose on my property? Can the second mortgage company come after me for the remaining money owed?

My mother and bough a home together in 03 suing the 80/20 principle which mean we have two mortgages. We are both listed on them both and share a 50/50 payment and ownership rule. I am having a nightmare time applying for an auto loan due to my dept to income ratio which is primarily the home. I have a few credit card that hold a very low balance to credit limit. I have heard that I can claim my mothers contributions as income to help my debt/credit ratio. Since the bank does not look at the fact that there are two head of household here that are both claiming 50/50 ownership and payments. Please provide me with any information that could potentially help both of us reduce this ratio to obtain credit for an auto loan.

We have 3 properties, 2 rentals and occupy the third. We have no late pymts and our credit scores are good (700+). The loans on all homes are still in the 2yr prepayment period, but considering to refi anyways due to the mortgages becoming too much for us. How will trying to refinance all loans at one time affect us (credit sdcores, lenders, etc)? Or is it better trying to refi only one home at a time, and doing the others later?
