What are my options as a FHA co-signer? My nephew walked away from is home and I am the co-signer and I have my own house I am trying to hold on to. So I can not handle his house. What issues am I going to get and how do I get through this issue

Hi kalimann,

As a co signer, you are as much responsible for the loan as the primary borrower. When you signed the loan docs as co signer, you agreed to pay the loan in case the main borrower defaults. Thus, you need to pay off the loan in order to save the property. Otherwise, if it goes into foreclosure your credit will be affected.

If I walk away besides a foreclosure on my credit report what else will happen? Being a FHA loan if there is a balance of $200,000 and the person walked away from the house then the lender comes after me and I just explain that I am struggling just to keep my home there is no way I can take on the other mortgage so I walk away as well. Then the lender sells it in foreclosure for $100,000, are they then coming back at me for the difference?

Hi Guest,

Are you the same person as kalimann?

Actually it depends on the lender whether they will come after you for the deficient amount due to a foreclosure. I think a deed in lieu of foreclosure would be a better option for you. In DIL the lender generally forgives the deficient amount. If you discuss with them your current financial difficulty, they may agree to do a DIL. Have you contacted them yet?

Hi Cheryl,

As your husband's mother will be cosigning the mortgage, the lender will want her to be on the property deed as well. Once her name is mentioned on the property deed, she would be considered as the legal owner of the property.

Hi Kiki,

You will have to refinance the mortgage in your name in order to remove your father from any kind of liability towards the mortgage.

An attorney won't be able to help you in this matter. You can ask your daughter to refinance the mortgage in her name and pay off the dues. This will help you in saving your credit and your daughter will be able to save the property.

My husband and I are about to close on property for our son and daughter in law. It is a HUD repo property and the only way we could get the place was to put our sons name on the title without ours. Is there a way to have either my husbands name or both of our names added at the closing? We live in Georgia.

Hi LillyMae,

You and your husband can add your names to the property deed at the time of the closing. However, you will have to inform the lender about the same and take his permission regarding addition of names.

Thanks

As a property owner with co-signers, if I want to get a renter in, do the co-signers have final say as to who I rent to?
also, how can I remove co-signers names?

Hi janice,

In order to remove all the co-signers name from the property deed, you will have to ask them to sign over the property to you. As far as the mortgage is concerned, you need to refinance it solely in you name. As the co-signers are the co-owners of the property, it will be better if you take their opinion while renting the property.

Thanks
