Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you today.
Is there currently a mortgage on the property or is it owned free and clear?
Are you online with me?
Thank your for the additional information.
In theory it would shield you from personal liability if your condo were owned in a corporate entity.
However, in practice it is not likely to work and I will explain why.
All mortgages contain a due on transfer clause which would require that you obtain the consent of the lender or pay off the balance owed before you change the title.
Even if they did allow the corporation to hold title they will assuredly want a personal guarantee from you, which would appear on your credit report and render you personally liable for default.
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
