Legal Answers
Q. Aunt died intestate in the state of Maryland.
A: If there is no Will and no surviving spouse, parents or children / grandchildren, the nieces and nephews of the Deceased (children of the deceased sibling) receive under "representation". For example, if there were 4 siblings who either survived or who died with their own issue, then the estate should get split in 4 parts, the nieces/nephews should receive a portion of their parent's 1/4 share. The law is contained in Md. Ann Code, Estates and Trusts § 3-104. Note, however, that timing is important. Sometimes an estate is not opened promptly and people die in the meantime. If the Deceased's siblings survived her but died before the estate is opened the answer changes - then instead of going to nieces/nephews the Estate(s) of the sibling(s) who died after the Aunt may be the recipients. While not legal advice, I hope this general information helps. You may wish to reach out to an estate attorney for further information or assistance with administering an estate.
Q. My name is only on the mortgage my ex husband is not. but we are both on the deed. He wants to buy the condo.
A: This question (or some variation of it) gets asked a lot. The GENERAL rule is that a mortgage is not assumable. However, a federal law changes how the general rule applies in certain family situations involving residential property. When a home is transferred to a husband or wife, the lender in most situations is required to accept the continued payments and can't call the loan due. (This is different from the ordinary rule that a deed requires immediate payment in full of the loan). What all this means is that usually the spouse taking over the property has the option to either A) assume the mortgage (by talking to the lender's assumption department and assuming of course that they have the financial means to pay). or B) refinance. If the original mortgage has more favorable interest and other terms, then assumption is usually the option to explore when there is a transfer between spouses. While not legal advice I hope that this general information helps.
Q. If my ex husband isn’t on my mortgage but deed only can he take over my loan?
A: The general rule that mortgages are not assumable does not usually apply to situations where a spouse is getting a home. There is a specific federal law that allows a husband or wife to continue paying the mortgage in the ordinary course. To get more details you could contact an experienced attorney in your state and/or talk to the lender's assumption department. While not legal advice I hope that this general information helps.
