Hi Jeanna!

Welcome to the forums!

If both of you are the owners of the property, then you will have to take your brother's permission to sell off the property. After the property is sold off, you can claim your invested amount in the property from your brother.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

can you request a novation even if your ex goes through bankrupcy to reclaim morgage. Also I have done a transfer of deed claiming no interest of the home.

Hi kct!

Welcome to the forums!

If you have no interest in the property, then the lender will not be ready to provide you the option of novation.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hi Hillary,

You should check out the mortgage docs in order to find out if the assumption clause is mentioned on it. If yes, then you can assume the loan. However, most lenders will prefer a refinance compared to an assumption.

I have a cousin who's dad left him a home in 2011. It hasn't been transferred into his name yet. The mortgage is about to go into foreclosure.... We want to catch mortgage up and have him do a transfer of deed to us. Is this possible? We can't get the $to pay it off until next month it's tied up. If we do the transfer of deed and pay the mortgage until we pay it off will we be safe having the deed in our name? Even though mortgage is not yet?

Hi Dale,

You can ask your cousin to sign a quitclaim deed and transfer your property to him. Then you can refinance the mortgage in your name. This will make you the sole owner of the property and the mortgage.
