If you do not bring the mortgage current by paying the past due amounts, then the lender can foreclose, and you will be named as a defendant. If the property...Read more »
I'm in Ohio - Wayne County. When my now ex husband and I bought our home, we were both on the deed but the mortgage was in his name only (my student loans were too high for us both to be on). When we divorced, he quit-claimed the deed to me.
Regardless of the ownership arrangement, the bank can start foreclosure proceedings if you do not make your payments.
