I need some sound legal advice on a mobile home in Texas

Hello. I need some sound legal advice on a mobile home in Texas please. We purchased for 75k, still owe 50k. We want to move on into a traditional home but have been utterly unable to sell this mobile for what we owe on it. Value has depreciated massively much like a car. We are currently on private property which is not ours, belongs to family. We have been so desperate to get out of this that we are contemplating "walking away" from it.We know this will leave horrible marks on our credit ...so we want to make a home purchase first and then stop paying the mobile and walk away. We need to know what to expect if we did this. Besides the bad credit, what else can happen? Can we be sued by our lender or would this just be a repossession like a car and that's the end of the story?Could the mobile lender place a lien on our new home or garnish wages? If Texas allows just a repossession then I don't see why we shouldn't do this. But if we can be sued, I don't want to do that either. What are Texas laws regarding a defaulted mobile home loan? Please help!Thank you

I have a home equity loan and through an error on the banks

I have a home equity loan and through an error on the banks behalf, they no longer hold any collateral interest in the property. I no longer own the property, they were paid in full when the account was closed and they subsequently urged me to use the equity line. Do I have any recourse and what would happen if I just stopped paying on it? Thank you.
