How does deed in lieu process work?

Posted on: 25th Apr, 2007 06:45 am
We live in Kentucky and we are two months behind on our mortgage payments and two years behind on property taxes. Can someone explain the deed in lieu process?
Hi sheryl!

Welcome to forums!

It is possible to save your home though it is in foreclosure. But you've mentioned that the foreclosure procedure has already started. In that case, I think the lender has rejected your loan modification offer. However, I would suggest you to contact your lender and reapply for a modification. This will help you know whether or not he would consider your request.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

It is your boyfriend who needs to sign a quitclaim deed in your favor to remove his name from the property. If he doesn't do so, you cannot force him as he is one of the owners of the property now. However, you may file a partition lawsuit after which the court can order the sale of the property. This will help you in getting rid of the property. Also, the mortgage will be paid off from the sale proceeds. Thus, you won't be liable for the mortgage as well as the property.

this past june i asked for a deed in lieu of foreclosure, because i couldn't afford my payments anymore, because of taking on the care of my parents.........i filled out the paperwork, sent them my financial info., etc.............they have sent me letters, which i'm afraid to open, and the call almost everyday.........my fear is that they won't do the deed in lieu, and that they will garnish my wages.........do i need an attorney?............i do have a bankruptcy in my past, due to divorce, but have bought 2 cars & a condo since then......any advice?

Hi ston,

You should open those letters and check out what the lender has offered you. Rather that consulting an attorney, it's always better to negotiate the lender on your own. As you're unable to pay off the loan dues, there are high chances that the lender will accept your request for a deed in lieu of foreclosure.

I have been unemployed since July. I have tried to make all payments on my house....I have not lived in since 2008. It sits empty, has not sold. I have drained all savings, 401K, moved several times to maintain employment and now just have nothing left. Creditors are calling for other debts because I have maintained this mortgage!

Hi Layne,

You can list the property in the market and try to sell it off. This will help you in getting rid of the property. You can use the sale price of the property to pay off the loan.

Thanks

It has been listed on market since 2008 and has not sold with numerous incentives, declining list prices etc. Right now the market is so flooded with forclosures etc that my property value has dropped to less than my mortgage amount even though I renovated it with out of pocket funds as well

Welcome layne,

I can understand your situation. However, you will have to hold your patience and try. You can contact a broker and take his help in selling off the property.

if i cannot make my house payment and they forclose, short sale, deed in lieu is FHA responsible for the balance and then they cannot come after me for the deficiencies.

Welcome kcrai,

You will be responsible for paying the deficient balance resulting from the sale of the property in case of a foreclosure or a short sale. However, as you have a mortgage insurance, it will pay for the deficient balance resulting from the property sale.
