Asked 10/12/2009 05:09 pm CT (Riverside, CA)

My husband and I are filing chapter 7 due to my prolonged unemployment, now he has lost his overtime and we are having trouble making the mortgage and the second, both with B of A. We are current, but are classified as imminent default as I pay later and later every month. Either food or mortgage.We owe $383.000 and it\'s only worth $138,000, we tried to refi and tried to get it modified. Both times we were told \"do not qualify\" Unemployment too much. We are seriously thinking about just letting it go , but we both have serious moral issues with not paying for where we live. What is your suggestion. My husband says just pay the first and leave the second, but won\'t they repo on that too?

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.

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

I have a co-signer along with myself on my mortgage loan. My husband did not qualify become of self employment income. We are current on our loan, but having some trouble making the payments, and would like to inquire about a loan modification program. Is this unrealistic since we are current, and have a co-signer because their income will be included with mine, although they are not helping make the payments ? Also, my husband and I claimed ch 7 bankruptcy last year (because of the business debt) and received discharge in December 2008. So re-finance is out for us to release cosigner from obligation. Is there any hope for us to get a lower payment??

Just got divorced. I was awarded the marital home. The mortgage is in my ex-husband\\\'s name only. My name is not on the mortgage or deed. I have received advice that I need to do a quit deed and then finance into my name. I have never owned a home. Will the quit deed dis-qualify me from any first time home buyer benefits/incentives?

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

Some have suggested that we buy the house in my name only. If we do so, how is income qualified? Should we be filing our tax returns seperately as opposed to joint? Thanks for your help. Dave

My father-in-law died 2 1/2 years ago. He was a widower. There may or may not have been a will... a mystery. The payments have been kept current but my in-laws have never notified the mortgage company. Their credit scores are horrible at best. What could happen if they can't qualify for a loan? What happens about the last 2 1/2 years will there be a penalty if the did qualify? What should their first step be?

I filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy last year which was discharged. My boyfriend and I want to get married April 2008 but he wants to buy a home after we get married and would i have to be included on the mortgage loan he gets? We were told it could affect his rates etc., Do you have to apply for a joint mortgage loan if married? Can't he apply as married using just his income and expenses and credit to qualify for a mortgage? I would not be on the loan documents but listed as having an interest in the home. Is this possible?

My husband & I had a bankruptcy discharged 7/25/07. ( we filed under 1 time only, unforeseen circumstances- SUDDEN DISABILITY...) I have re-established credit & my score is still rather low- my middle score is 606. My husband, however, has been unable to qualify for credit & his mid score remains around 530-540. I know we would get a better rate if we waited 2 yrs since the bankruptcy, but we need to move soon. We are both on SSD now & make a combined monthly income of $1293, & right now we are paying almost $500 a month for rent. ( we have been here 2 1/2 yrs & we have never been a day late) We want to buy a modest home - a loan for maybe $40,000-$45,000. PLEASE, I know there has to be a loan program out there for us. I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU COULD TAKE TIME OUT OF YOUR BUSY SCHEDULE TO TELL US WHAT TO DO & MAYBE POINT ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. THANK YOU SO MUCH,CJ
