from pete ..............i wasn't a party to the original loan application (10 years ago). however, i appear on the mortgage document and on the deed. did i sign them? they were recorded. because of a divorce, i deeded my interest to her. no one mentioned anything about a mortgage. i assumed since i wasn't on the promissory note, i wouldn't be liable in the event of a foreclosure (i don't anticipate one, but you never know). will the bank come after me in the event there's a foreclosure even though i'm not on the note? if so, how do i compel her or the bank to take my name off of the mortgage document. i'm not aware of any refinancing by her. i deeded my interest to her about a month ago. Help!!

Hi Pete, Not okay. Ur liable of record for a mortgage and U do not have any security instrument as a deed. Have ex refi asap if possible or loan mod maybe list for short sale. Yes, the bank can put the foreclosure on your credit rpt. also. Call a local Realtor for help and call whomever Lauryn suggested to below.

How long has it been since you have been removed from the note and deed? Sometimes it takes a while for the record office to update. You can also contact the bank and or the title office/attorney that oversaw the transfer and ask them to follow up. It could just be a matter of the paperwork being filed incorrectly or in the wrong jurisdiction.

Consult with your attorney for any necessary legal advice; if you are on the recorded mortgage, you are still responsible for the debt/payment...

It means that you are still legally responsible for the debt and could interfere with you buying in the future because you still have that existing loan outstanding.. I would have the ex get her own mortgage in just her name. The bank won't remove you. They always want more people to hold accountable. Hugh Brown
