My name is ***** ***** SBA loan to repair her home, only her name and his name is ***** ***** deed. What can I do or what can she do?
Family Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 9 months ago
I would demand to have your name added to the deed so you have an equity position.

I would also consider getting a promissory note for balance owing and possible judgment so you are in a position to collect in the event of default.
