Thanks for the additional information. Just to clarify then, your concern is whether you can take over the mortgage payments for him while he's incarcerated so that he doesn't lose his home?

Based on the information you've shared, there shouldn't be any problems with you taking over mortgage payments.

You won't be able to have the mortgage transferred to your name, but you can make the payments on his behalf so that he does not default and forcelose on his home.

Mortgage payments are not required to be received from the home owner directly, there's nothing in the law that prevents you from making payments on his behalf.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

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.

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.
