Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Your ex is questioning you about refinancing because those specific words are not in "it", do you mean the divorce decree does not require him to refinance the mortgage? What does the decree indicate with regard to this property and the loan?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
Not sure if my response went through. The decree, Real estate lien, and deed of trust all require him to pay me $210month for 60 months. ALl payments due on or before Aug 1, 2014. The decree gives him the house. However he is questioning me bcause nowhere do I see the words that says he has to refinance or sell to get my name off the mortgage. My lawyer said that the deed of trust does that. But no exact wording is in there.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
I am wanting my name off the house because I cannot get one on my own with my name still tied to that. The loan payments he makes to me are separate from a mortgage. He resides in the house and pays the mortgage. I pay my own rent. But I don't want my name removed before he pays me because then I cannot take the house back if he defaults in mortgage payments to mortgage company or loan payments to me.
What do I do now??
He is thinking of paying me off his half of the loan early. That is all due by August 1, 2014.
