Legal Answers
Q. I own a house with my ex and I’m still on the deed not the loan. I want to be bought out can I legal do that?
A: Yes, you can be bought out. Your ex will, likely, have to refinance to come up with the cash to pay you. It is in the settlement of that refinance that you can be removed from the title and a new deed showing your ex's ownership of the property. Good luck in your future endeavors.
Q. Good day, This question is for a real estate attorney experienced in chapter 7 post bankruptcy.
A: It is clear that the mortgage company representative is melding two issues together to come up with a nonsensical result. The issue here is that while the Chapter 7 discharge absolves you of personal responsibility on the loan the liens remain. So, the deferred balance is part of the lien that remains on the property. Therefore, no lender will refinance you without paying off that deferred balance and the current balance. Any new lender will want to take a first position security interest on your property and must deal with the deferred balance. Good luck with your future endeavors related to this property.
Q. My family member filed for bankruptcy. His case was closed and then given to another lawyer who sued him for the same
A: It depends on the situation. There are many reasons why a Trustee or their counsel would have to sue someone in a bankruptcy case. I would need more specific information to be able to form any sort of answer to this question.
