I found about $35 non-compliance fee per month charge for not providing a current renters insurance policy to my landlord. They charged me $70 for 2 months despite me having insurance.

Unfortunately, you cannot compel your co-borrower to cooperate with refinancing the car. I assume their name is also on the title. This means they own half of the car, and are equally liable for the loan payments. You also cannot compel them to sign any paperwork to sell the car if they do not want...Read more »

The debt was incurred while we were married but before adding her name to the house. The debt is a credit card. I plan on settling with them but in the meantime I don't want our house to be in jeopardy.
