You don't disclose a critical fact- are your parents in a Chapter 7 or Ch. 13 bankruptcy?
If it's a Chapter 7, the "curtain" dropped on the date the case was filed, so sure, your parents can do whatever they want/can at this point.
If it's a Chapter 13, and... Read more »

Where's your lawyer?
He is the one who should be doing battle with the bank. Bank's don't cotton to customers, but they are somewhat fearful of good bankruptcy lawyers who will take them to the lick log.

I would strongly recommend meeting with me or another bankruptcy attorney asap to figure out whether filing for bankruptcy relief would be a good fit for you. Bring the complaint with you to discuss it.
and want to give it to the bank for paydown, will it count when figuring the total debt if we sign them over to the bank. The landlord would still need to sign off. Let them fight it out.

Live in MN after the bankruptcy my house note was sold to another bank, I'm current with payments but is not being reported to the credit bureau beside not getting a home equity loan what else can I expect?
answered on May 24, 2019
You need to send them a copy of the reaffirmation agreement so you can establish ownership and then get an equity loan.
If it comes after filing, is it asset after the fact? How is it treated?

Don’t sign the deed without discussing with your lawyer. You can put your arrearages into the plan and pay them off in two years. Find the money for your lawyer bc you can’t afford to lose your house.
