My daughter used her VA benefits to purchase a new home for us. We have made the payments from our account. My daughter, her husband and 2 children have lived with us from the start and are now moving out at the end of the month. The move-out was caused by less-than-amiable circumstances. Until now, the verbal agreement is that the home is ours with their names on the mortgage
until we were ready to refinance and/or purchase the home outright.
To further complicate matters, my wife and I have spent nearly $30k for required upgrades, partially to comply with HOA
requirements (exterior improvements), and other essentials such as window coverings, et. al.
We are not in a position at this juncture to purchase the home outright but, we are able to make payments. My daughter, on the other hand, does not have financial ability to make both the mortgage payment and the new lease on her new apartment
. I do not want to continue making payments on this home if my legal rights of ownership are not secured. I'm in California, what are my options?
