We are a Mortgage Holder on a Property in MN the homeowner

We are a Mortgage Holder on a Property in MN the homeowner took out another mortgage for fixes on the house (Windows, etc.) which was taken over by the Local HRA (When asked, nobody knows anything about this) That Loan was recorded in 2009, while our Mortgage Loan which was taken out in 2006 but never got recorded until 2012. In December of 2012 the home owner turned over to us the house keys and walked away. He is still named as the owner, so we need to know how to get the property into our name in order for us to try to get it sold. Can we file a Grant Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure or do we need to do a Warranty Deed? Also, do we have to pay off the other Mortgage on the home in order to get clear title or just put it on the market?

Question is Mateo County, California​During my

Question is for San Mateo County, California​During my 1984 divorce my ex was awarded sole ownership and possession of the family residence.​ Each of us were also directed to be responsible for items awarded to each.The court order was never filed with the assessor's office.

What forms would I need to file to reverse an inter spousal

What forms would I need to file to reverse an inter spousal transfer grant deed filed with the records asked by the bank The escrow company we used told me I could file a form to undo it , as soon as we made the purchase finale. Is that true? We also remortgaged the house using another bank is that still valid ? I also would like to know what a full reconveyance filed by the new mortgage company . I'd like to know if I can file these forms? I've worked with filing court documents in the past, however as I get older I enjoy doing this type of tedious paper work less.

I live in CA and have a rental property in Nevada. You

I live in CA and have a rental property in Nevada. You previously helped me with a question regarding Deficiency Judgement. I applied for Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure for this property and the lender approved. I received a "Grant Deed Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure" and "Estoppel Affidavit" from my lender. Can you let me know what the following sentences mean in layman language so I can understand and if there are issues I need to be aware of:1) "This deed is an absolute conveyance, the Grantor having sold said land to the Grantee for a fair and adequate consideration, being full satisfaction of all obligations secured by the deed of trust executed by ...."My question: please explain what this means2) by accepting this deed, Grantee specifically intends that the deed of trust or mortgage survive and not merge with the fee interest transferred by this deed and that the deed of trust shall continue as a lien on the property until it is reconveyed."My question: what does this mean? any potential issue for me?And I also received the Estoppel Affidavit:1) "That the consideration for said deed was and is the full cancellation of all debts, obligations, costs and charges secured by that certain deed of trust executed by..."My question: does this mean that all my debt and unpaid interests and costs are forgiven in exchange for my giving back the property? Does this mean that they will NOT pursue the option of obtaining "Deficiency Judgement?2) "that at the time of making said deed, affiant believed and now believes that the aforesaid consideration therefore represents the fair value of the property so deeded."My question: I'm not sure that this means. Does it mean that I'm exchanging my property for the debt I owe and it's a fair exchange? is this a standard statement or are there potential issues for me?I have the docs (2 pages) I can attach if you would like read the full Grant Deed and Estoppel Affidavit. Thank you for your help.
