Until the house forecloses and the bank takes tittle, the person currently holding the title owns the home and they can do what ever they please. If the bank has taking possession then only the thing that are not attached.

Good Luck

Hi Bubbles,

Contact your lender(s) again and ask them if you could possibly do a Short Sale. Also, contact a local Realtor to start the process of a Short Sale as soon as possible (today). A short sale is a better alternative than a foreclosure.

Good luck.

Alex Pereira and Secure Realty answered:
all a forbearance is going to do is allow you to skip or make partial payments for a couple of months and tack the balance to the end of the mortgage. It is meant only as a short term reprieve to stabilize. At some point you will have to analyze (just like the bank did) whether you can truly afford the payment. If you cant, taking a forbearance may allow you to look at selling options and buy you some time until you are able to sell the home. ... more

Hi Melesio-

If you provide an address we should be able to help you. When I looked through our MLS, the least expensive house that is listed is $38,900 on Cuyler. The home you are asking about may not be listed yet or may have closed.

Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

1) You can get a gift downpayment from family.
2) Seller can contribute up to 6% to your downpayment
3) Nehemiah downpayment, no-repayment - Seller signs contribution document. find out more at

I have some great lenders, and it does not cost you anything to ask questions - email me.

Research and find out. Call different lenders and get good referrals from people that have worked with them in the past who KNOW what they are doing.

I don't understand why the lender you spoke with would NOT advise you on this!

I would find another lender.

Unless you are applying for a 203K(construction/repair) loan the property has to be in liveable condition. It is not liveable if there are no appliances.
