can I place a lein on ex-husbands property (bar) the loan is attached to my home (home equity line of credit). I am unable to get my credit score up or refinance my house because of this loan. Deed is solely in his name/loan is in both names. Divorce decree states he refinance this home equity loan (not going to happen he has no job and his business is closed) and I refinance my home loan.
Yes, the building is completely paid for from the home equity loan. He has a clear deed on it in his name only.
Ok, It seems my only option will be to file the execution of contempt order of divorce decree and inform the courts I would like for him to put the Building up for sale immediately or pay off the home equity loan. Which to my understanding this can still be drawn out as long as he is in no hurry to accept an offer on his building. This loan has a maturity date of August 2013. I feel I should put a time period on the sale of this property (6 months?)
