Good afternoon Janice. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
They could not be more wrong. The note becomes your asset and the lien continues on the property. Your husband's death does not terminate and relieve his parents of their obligation to pay the debt. What you want to do as part of the administration of your husband's death is to sign an Assignment of Note document as executor of the estate transferring the Note to yourself. Then, you want to record that Note in the real property records of the city/county where the property is located. They will not be able to sell the property and deliver clean title without the lien being released. So, when they go to try to sell or refinance the property, they will have to pay your note to release the lien.
