Josh: ('hook 'em!)
I have a floating home which is personal property, not real estate. Can I put another person on the loan as co-signer then file a [url=http://www.mortgagefit.com/quitclaim-deed.html]Quit Claim Deed[/url] to turn over all rights & responsibilities to her??? It is doubtful any bank will make a new loan on it and this seems like the best/only(?) way to get out of it..... help!

No - that can't be done. She needs to purchase the boat from you so she can be on the Note and Title, releaving you of all responsibility.

Your options are to walk, resulting in credit damage and a judgement, or to lend her the money so she can buy out your current Note. There's no easy way out of the situation.

How'd you get the loan initially, if there isn't a long term lease? Can you introduce her to your current lender?

if your lender will agree to add someone as a cosigner (effectively granting you a [url=http://www.mortgagefit.com/refinance.html]refinance[/url] of the loan), then you've got a shot at what you're seeking.

Hi chenney,

If there is a co-signer for the refinance, then the lender will ask you to add the co-signer's name in the quitclaim deed.

Thanks

I can't agree with that last comment, James. The cosigner is there simply as a guarantor, not as an owner of the home. Why a lender would require a cosigner to be added to title for the purpose of simply being a cosigner is alien to me. I would find that way outside the lines of normalcy in a refinance, a purchase or any other transaction.
