Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
why did I get a quick claim deed now and what happens to her loan on the house since she filed bankruptcy and I was not notified until it was over?
what do I do now??? did she just make me sole owner of this debt???
You received a quitclaim of your ex's interest in the property. This does indeed make you the sole owner of the property (unless you choose to not record the deed, and instead you tear it up and send it back to your ex with a letter stating that you reject the deed transfer).
And you are the only person who remains legally obligated to pay the mortgage, due to your ex's previous bankruptcy.
In sum (assuming that you record the quitclaim deed), the legal status of your circumstance is exactly the same as if you had purchased the property alone, and you were the only borrower who applied for and was granted the loan.
I don't know if that's what you want, but it's what you have.
Is my answer helpful?
Please let me know!
so will the bank contact me or should I just continue with my half payment and reject the quit claim deed. she owes 1/2 the taxes and bills at the home? FOR 9 YEARS. I THINK I SHOULD REJECT THE QCD.
this quit claim deed was received without my knowledge or concent and is filed at the county how do I reject a filed document???
