My brother purchased his home in 2002. He filed ch 7 bankruptcy; all debts discharged 7/8/11. On 12/14/09 he executed a Quitclaim Deed and made me a Joint Tenant with him on his house. I did NOT sign a reaffirmation agreement on his mortgage loan.
answered on Jan 19, 2023
I assume the loan only had his name and was made prior to the bankruptcy. We would need to know how it was treated in the bankruptcy--even with a discharge, he may have re-affirmed the debt making his estate liable. Regardless, your title is subject to the lien--liens are not automatically... Read more »

You need to consult with a probate attorney. Because there was no will, the laws of intestate apply (ie property goes to grandpas kids, then grandkids, etc). Talk with a probate attorney if there is anything that can be done if grandpas kids won’t sign away their interest.

This is quite a broad question to answer. If you have specifics, it would be easier to identify if the loan may be void or voidable.
There are several ways to challenge the validity of a loan. If there are missing terms, such as the number of years to pay or the interest rate the lender... Read more »

you need a full detailed consultation with an attorney that has experience in mortgage litigation. there are too many facts missing and the attorney would need a timeline and all documents you have.
The mortgage was in my ex brother in law's name. Before he passed away he deeded the house to me. Would I qualify as a eligible bidder or eligible tent buyer?
answered on Dec 13, 2021
no. if you are on title to the property, you would not be able to bid at auction. the post is a little confusing because you say the "house was auctioned off" which implies it was already foreclosed upon so it's not clear how you would be able to bid on anything at this point.... Read more »

HOA is within their right to foreclose. The only way to avoid foreclosure is to bring the account current all at once or file a chapter 13 bankruptcy to enter a payment plan to catch up. You will need to have a consultation with an attorney. (Note: withholding HOA payment is not the proper... Read more »

Yes they can still foreclose. There is no such statute of limitations on secured debt. Talk to your chapter 13 attorney as to your options. If you cannot remove the lien in the chapter 13, you may have to pay to keep the home, or you may have to consider selling the house.

the loan is secured on the property which means they can foreclose at any time, even 10 years later. to avoid foreclosure, you are going to need to pay the balance due in a lump sum, negotiate the payments due, or file a chapter 13 bankruptcy and do a payment plan to catch up to avoid foreclosure.
