A: Yes, the mortgage must be paid at all times or the property will be placed into foreclosure. If the estate does not have money to pay the mortgage and a foreclosure is filed, you will need to get an answer filed to the foreclosure so that you will have enough time to sell the property.

Schedule a free consultation to avoid losing the home to foreclosure.
