I know you weren’t there when I talked to the attorney and you have to just guess at what he said, but it seems he said something about her signing a quit claim to herself? Does that make any sense?
I need to open this subject again. A friend suggested to me that in some states (I assume not Arizona) the mortgaged homeowner cannot put another party on the house title deed without adding them to the mortgage. That means the mortgage company would also want the new party to qualify for the loan conditions. I believe the purpose of this "ruling" is to have the new party be responsible for paying the loan if the original homeowner defaulted. If they cannot qualify or will not accept the responsibility for the loan payments, the title company can force them off or remove them from the title.
I'm looking for a statute, law or code from any other state to use as a precedent to validate a case for me to take this woman to court.
Just a personal note: this woman is boasting to people (some we both know) and has posted the same on a couple of different social websites, that she "earned the right to have her name on the title because she 'wore her fingers to the bone' to clean it and spent 'a lot of time' setting up her furniture and her other household properties."
The fact is that she has not contributed any financial help. One other thing; she moved in on February 1, 2013, waited until she knew that her name was on the title and then moved out on March 6, 2013.
