Hello, you may or may not have to pay off the debt depending on the details. If it is a judgment, you will likely have to. If it is not a judgment, you likely will not have to. However, I couldn't say for sure without gettiing into more detail with you.
I am available to help you at your convenience if you wish.
I also offer credit score improvement programs for free while we work on your mortgage.
