Mortgage interest

If you sell your house but carry the note, who claims the interest, seller or buyer.
Hi Dandy!

Welcome to forums!

As far as I know, the person whose name is on the mortgage docs and who pays the loan dues will be able to claim the mortgage interest. Nevertheless, you can contact a tax adviser and take his opinion in this matter.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

It is considered a term mortgage which is how mortgages were before the amortized mortgage. In a amortized mortgage a part of every payment goes to principal (the amount you owe) and a part goes toward interest (what the bank charges to loan you the money) In the beginning almost all of the payment goes toward interest but as time goes by more goes toward the principal and less toward the interest until the principal is paid off.

The interest only mortgage only pays the interest so you never pay off your debt.

In my opinion, it is the person who pays the mortgage will be able to claim the interest.
