I am selling my home and using the proceeds to update my boyfriends home, which I will live in. We want something in writing in case things do not work out, so I will be paid back the investment I made in the house. We do not have a mortgage and my name will not be on the deed. Suggestions?

I was recently told that since my mortgage was sold to Fannie Mae as soon as it was set up, but paperwork still handled by bank who provided mortgage, that I cannot refinance within 3 months (using exception, normally 6 months) of when I cancelled my listing to sell my home through a realtor. Is this true? Why? Additional info: Listed home from 1/13 to 3/13, 2 months, and took off market because of the slowdown of the market.

Are you familiar with mortgage acceleration programs? (not bi-weekly payment or prepayments). These programs are already quite common in Europe and other countries now. Are you currently using an acceleration program or recommending acceleration programs to your clients. There is a lot of information avaiable on the internet these days and the approach seems solid but I wanted to get some opinions from people in the industry tonight. Thanks, Rick

I have been hearing and reading for the past year about the mortagage crisis and resulting foreclosures and don't understand why these experts are coming to this conclusion. I can't wait until my loans convert. I have a 5.75% fixed rate that will convert shortly. My index is the 12 month treasury moving average which is at 2.0%. My margin is 2.25% giving me a fixed rate for the next twelve months of 4.25% which I confirmed with my lender if my loan were to convert today ie. a lower payment. I believe that most of the no interest loans originated three to five years ago would be fixed for the initial period at approx. 5.375% to 6.25% with margins of 2.25% to 2.75%. Also, most indexs used are the 6 mo. LIBOR, 12 mo. LIBOR, 11 district or one year treasury, all very low. By adding the margin most of these loans should refix at very favorable rates. Yes, there will be principal (repaid to yourself) and a 25 year amort period. Nevertheless, is the whole world wrong or am I not seeing this right? This mortgage resetting is a monumental part of this national crisis and causing widespread foreclosures because of supposedly higher monthly payments. As far as I can see the numbers just don't support higher payments and this foreclosure meltdown. Can you please clarify. Thanks, Rick

I'm a single father raising my 2 sons. I refinanced my house with a 95% loan a couple of years ago with a ARM after my divorce. I make all my payments on time but it's not always easy.

My wife and I have been deeded a property using "a special warranty deed subject to life estate". We would like to borrow against the property for improvements, however, we would prefer not to have the grandmorther sign docs as grantor because of age and mental wellness. The grandmother no longer lives in the house, and will not return to the house because of health issues. Does the deed superseed the Life Estate, and should we be able to borrow with out her signature? Thanks

My company is transferring me, and will purchase my current home if we can't sell it. Our credit score in in the 500's due to an illness that caused my husband to lose his job. We have two late mortgage payments from 8 months ago - which surprised me because I contacted the mortgage company and they agreed to those late payments before they were late. We also have several other late payments, one 5 months ago, but most are about 10 - 12 months and everything current since then. I have worked for this company for more than 15 years and my spouse recently was approved for disability payments which has helped. We have never had a judgement filed against us or filed bankruptcy, and all our accounts are current. I was sick to see my credit score so low. In this new strict housing market is there any chance that we might get a mortgage? We should get enough out of the sale of our current home to put 20% down. I am very worried about even being able to find a place that with rent to us with such a crummy credit score. Thanks, I appreciate your advice.

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 ex & I finalized divorce in March 2007. I have been the sole income and paid both the primary and secondary mortgage. The Lawyers sprung Liens on the property in court without prior knowledge or resulting adverse effects. The money was available to pay the lawyers and ex off. However the credit union and title company interepretted the liens as primary, and wanted a suborndiation agreement. The subornination agreement was finalized after the market plunged, and mortgage applicaton expired. No equity left in the home as there are foundation repairs. The ex was to issue a quit claim deed, but never did. I have made all payments. Under advisement with the courts to refinance, however my credit fell as I attempted to refinance and get loans, causing the loan to value and credit scores not to align. My lawyer won't lift the lien. Question: What are the creative options for me to remove my ex from the title and deed. I cannot refinance, and the foundation is needing repair.

Mortgage Company is refusing payment to steal old lady’s house Hello, My 83 year old Grandmother owns a 450,000 house. About 9 months ago she refinanced it for 187,000. She pays 780.00 a month on the mortgage. She let it go for 3 months and now owes 2500 in back payments. I started to pay it off last month by sending them $1000.00. They said that it was ok for me to pay them last month, but this month they are refusing payment. I now have the money to pay off the entire amount that is due, but they are still refusing payment. They made it difficult for me to help my grandmother with this: She had to call them many times and we sent in signed documents to get them to talk to me and allow me to make payment arrangements. Now they are going back on it. Due to their lies and behavior, I feel that they want the house and not the money. What can I do to force them to accept the money that would bring her current, rather then let them foreclose and get a 450,000 house for 187,000? I don’t really have the money for a layer, but I do have a very strong sense of justice, enough to keep working on this 24/7 until it is resolved. Thanks much for any info

I have a 5 year ARM which adjusts in Sept 2009 (from 4.875% to 1 yr treas + 2.75%). Upon the adjustment, will my monthly payments still be calculated using a 30 year amortization, or a 25 year? And then 24 years, etc? And is it true that the outstanding principal amount will be used for the present value, or the amount on the original note? And if the rate adjusts every year, will I still have it paid off on the 360th payment?

My fiance and I bought a house last year, with both of our names on the mortgage and title. We pay the mortgage/property taxes out of a joint account that is only used for housing expenses. Obviously, we would like to deduct the interest expense for taxes this year. The mortgage company only sent us one tax form with the total mortgage interest paid. When filing our taxes what are our options for deducting the interest since we cannot file jointly? Can I take the entire deduction or does it have to be split 50:50. If it has to be split 50:50, does the mortgage company need to send us two forms with the mortgage interest split in two or can we just divide it ourselves?
