He can refinance the mortgage in his name since he is on the deed. You can then sign a quit claim or leave it in his name alone if allowed by the lender.

Good Luck!

Your fathers name on the deed is not the problem. The issue is whether or not the current value of the home is enough to pay off your mortgage when your father purchases it. If the value has dropped, your father will not be able to obtain a mortgage for the amount you owe. it will be based on the current appraised value of the home.

Why would he have to remove his name from the deed? He's a legal owner already. If the house in worth less than what's owed, he won't be able to get a mortgage to pay you off.
