Q: How can I take over my childhood house?

1 Answer | Asked in Real Estate Law, Bankruptcy, Family Law and Landlord - Tenant for Nebraska on
Answered on Jul 24, 2017

You should save the payment money and approach the bank to take over the loan. Yet, the bank in not likely going to be able to talk with you about it since your not on the loan. Making payments may take your dad out of default but you won't get any credit for the property and your just helping your dad stay in the home. You could make an arrangement with your father to have him add you on the property in exchange for making the payments.

If the ex had the child during his 50/50 time he would be under no obligation to inform you. You question may point to a need for you to actually come up with a court approved parenting plan. Such a plan would spell out the times and what approvals are needed for notice for such trips. It may also cover future schooling needs and holidays. For you consideration and peace of mind.
