Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a Florida licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
The quitclaim would not make you personally liable for any debt which you did not sign or guaranty. The property will, however, remain subject to the lien, but you are not personally liable for repayment.
If you are making payments and living in the home then the lender is prohibited from invoking a due on transfer clause to demand full payment.
Otherwise, they wold have to foreclose on the property and if there was deficiency they would need to make a claim against the estate of the deceased borrower.
The short answer is you are not personally responsible for repayment yourself in the event of foreclosure.
If you want to stay in the home you can and must continue the monthly payments.
