I recently became disabled and have lots of medical bills from complications due to heart surgery, my income has gone from over $75,000/yr to about $9000/year. Some of the my bills are in collection, the only thing I have left is my home, if I were to quit claim to my daughter, would that prevent creditors from placing liens on the property because of my bills? There are no pending suits or anything like that at this point. Is there a better way to protect the property?

I think you cannot stop creditors from placing a lien just by quitclaiming property.

Hi Pam,

Welcome to our forums.

Since you have incurred the debt, your creditor may seek a civil judgment against you or try to garnish your wages. Even if they do not seek a judgment, they have a claim on your assets since you have not been regular on your payments. You may try to transfer the property to a trust or to someone else but the creditor may claim that it is a fraudulent conveyance leaving the transfer aside. In this situation, the term "fraudulent conveyance" does not imply that it's a criminal act. Fraudulent transfer occurs under the following circumstances:

1. You transferred the property thereby intending to stop or prevent collection attempts from your creditors.

2. You transferred property to a third party and for less than it's worth and after doing so, you became insolvent, that is, a state wherein your debts exceed your home.

Good luck

Hi,

Quitclaim is not a solution here. If you want to quitclaim then you have to clear the lien before signing the quitclaim deed. And if you want to sell the property then you have to pay the lien at the closing. So I think you should better pay it off somehow.

Thanks,
Larry

Welcome Jane.

Credit card debts are unsecured debts. So if they have not place a lien yet then the credit company cannot come after you for the due debts after your mother signs the deed to you. So ask your mother to quitclaim the property toy. By the way is it a mortgaged property?

If mother passes away with the house still in her name, can the creditors come after the house? We need money for funeral expenses. We need to be sure to have the money from the house for that reason.
Thank you for your help, Jane

yes, lender is not fool, they don't allow quitclaim on a home whoes owner have had a debt. so ,you cannot prevent your lender to places liens on your home by quit claim.

I had a voluntary repo on an auto ad the finance company wants to place a lien on my home until the difference of the auto's value and what they sold it for is collected ! Can this actually happen or is it just talk?

Hi Pillpusher,

I don't think the lender can place a lien on your property. I'm not aware of any auto mobile contract that gives the lender a right to place lien on your home. No one would put his house as collateral to purchase a car. But, they can sue you for deficiency. However, the laws vary in different states. Thus, it's better to consult an attorney in this regard.

Thanks,

Jerry

Hi denise,

You can quitclaim your share in the proeprty to take your name off the deed. But as your name is not on the loan, you will not be held responsible for not paying it. You need to pay off the debt in order to remove the lien from the property. Why don't you go for a refinance (probably a cash-out one) and pay off the credit card debt? That seems to be an option you have with you.

Hi TROUBLED,

I believe they can put a lien on her interest in the home, if she fails to remain current on the property.
