I have a cosigner on my home. The home is mortgaged but is

Customer Question

My name is ***** ***** I have a cosigner on my home. The home is mortgaged but is held in the cosigners name. He is old and is very likely to die. What happens? Can/does the mortgage automatically transfers over to me because I'm on the house? Does the family of the decease (coveting greed) have any ownership of the house?

Hello: This is Attorney Phillips. Welcome to Justanswer! I will be assisting you today with your post.

I am sorry, but I am having trouble understanding your post.

Are you saying that the home is in both of your names, but the mortgage is on his name only?

Kindly clarify.

Thank you for your cooperation,
