I think you would appraise higher now and it is unlikely it would come it at the same amount from different apprialsers. Some of the lenders are now offering as little as 10% LTV ratio. AS most others mentioned, don't be afraid to contact 1-2 loca lenders and get their programs. ... more

You should get a written response from the Lender that will be making the loan.

You should consult with a Qualified Attorney.


The Key is "Full Disclosure" - let the Lender (and other parties involved) know exactly what is going on,
and have them explain to you what the potential consequences are.

In the State of Florida, if you add any name other than a spouse to your Deed,
it can be considered a Transfer of Interest in Real Property (a New Deed).

That New Deed could incur additional Documentary Stamps (Tax) of .70 cents per $100 of value.
For example, on a $300,000 Deed, there would be a Documentary Stamp (Tax) of $2100.

(There are exceptions to this in Miami-Dade County.)

Please visit the State of Florida Department of Revenue Website for a complete explanation:


Another potential pitfall to adding names to the Deed after the original closing:

The Mortgage Holder may consider it to be a change in ownership,
and they may decide to trigger (enforce) the Due on Sale Clause in the Mortgage.
(A demand for the entire amount of the Loan Balance to be due and payable immediately).

Again, please get Legal Advice from a qualified Attorney before signing any documents.

Best wishes,
