Thank you for the post, is your boyfriend asserting that a mortgage would not be approved if you are on the deed? This is the only possibility that would make the statement true.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
That isn't relevant.Any other reason?
Lawyer: MShore, Attorney replied 8 years ago
No, other than your boyfriend simply does not want your name listed on the deed or the home has been offered as security for some loan/line of credit and he cannot make a change to the deed without creditor approval.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
