My boyfriend and I bought a new mobile home together in May

Customer Question
(GA). Because my credit was...
My boyfriend and I bought a new mobile home together in May (GA). Because my credit was poor (on the advice of the salesman) we opted to use his credit to apply for the loan and I supplied the down payment via "a cash loan" to him. We were told that we could complete some paperwork after closing to get my name on the title along with his. Now we have been told that the only way to do so is to refinance which we cannot do for two years? We both want to have 50/50 ownership of the home (we do have 50/50 on the land) as I am currently unprotected if anything was to happen to him and will receive no tax credit etc.
What are the options to legally have my name added to the home?
Thank you!

Who told you you could complete paperwork afterward? Did the lender?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Not the lender. The salesman at the home center. He suggested we use only my boyfriends info on the application and that I include a gift letter for the deposit. We have since contacted the bank and they told us we can not amend - is there any way to get my name on the home? I put down 20k cash and pay half the mortagage. Can we quit claim or ??
Real Estate Lawyer: Damien Bosco, Attorney replied 1 year ago

You would need the approval of the lender. Have you spoken to the lender?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
they said we can't do anything until we refinance which we are not allowed to do for two years. So what options does that leave us? A marriage? A will?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
There is not legal form or recourse?
Real Estate Lawyer: Damien Bosco, Attorney replied 1 year ago

To protect your inheritance rights, a marriage and/or a will are options. A marriage would give certain inheritance rights in and of itself. And a will will bequesting the home to you, would provide you the inheritance right tool. If you believe the sales agent fraudulent induced you to enter into the agreement, there is a potential fraud claim also. I know the answer is not quite what you wanted to hear but at least you know the options. We can continue to discuss if you would like to do so.

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.
