There is no way to answer this question for you without knowing what type of paperwork exists on the house. Whose name is it in? Are you on the mortgage? What type of legal document exists between you and your mother regarding the house? ... more

You can check your county records to see how it was recorded. Many will allow you to do this online, otherwise you'll have to make a trip to the recorders office.

First of all, so sorry to hear about your mother. It is a loss that only gets tolerable but never goes away. Do they want you out or they want to sell the house? I would be happy to help. I can pull title to see who is on the title. Then we can get a better understanding of your options. Hope that helps. ... more

Well probably not, but you may have another way to do it. California law allows you to withdraw anytime you find out any previously undisclosed information. So if they even hand you a title policy you can use it to back out. So you really want to find another way out.

Of course, all of this really sucks though. Why should you have to sneak around because the lender did not fund your loan? Give me a call let's see if I can fund it for you. I close very quickly.

It is too bad these lenders are not held accountable for this type thing.

You should contact me as soon as you can. My phone number is 949-297-1207.

John Arendsen answered:
So much depends on your market. I know in the Bay area and Southern California values are climbing past the average wage earners ability to qualify for let alone afford to purchase. Interest rates are beginning to tick up and if Bernake starts tightening the purse strings it could impact the market in our geographical sphere of influence.

That stated more inventory is starting to surface as once underwater homeowners are beginning to get their heads above water and starting to list their properties. I think the overall market looking forward bares some concern but as far as I'm concerned we've got to just keep on keeping on. There's really nothing else we can do about it.

Ellen Lane answered:
The house is apparently pending the close of escrow or under an option period. Agents usually will not show houses under contract. Until it closes though , you can still submit an offer as a backup. Many times the house doesn't close because of some glitch and comes back on the market, then they will consider your offer. ... more
