When you first purchased your home with
a mortgage from the bank,
more than likely,
there was a little, itsy bitsy, paragraph that indicated that you would do your best to make sure the home was well cared for such that the home would retain its value so that the mortgage company wouldn't have to worry about that which secured the loan.
If you do do the things that you are saying, you may have to answer to a judge.
I am not a lawyer, and I don't play one on TV, but, common sense dictates that you would want to keep as many judges out of your life as you can!
A better solution might be to ask for assistance from
a Realtor trained in FORBEARANCE AGREEMENTS and Short Sales,
a Bankruptcy Attorney,
a Foreclosure Attorney,
and afterwards, actually call the mortgage company and ask for mercy.
Try to get a Real Estate License. Learn about Real Estate,
Go to Real Estate Investor Meetings (AND LEARN HOW TO SAVE YOUR HOME and possibly help others to save their homes).
There are many techniques,
that you need to learn about before you try any of them,
to save your home,
One that I really liked to do when I was able, was to do Equity Sharing.
Instead of borrowing money from family and friends,
sell a portion of your home to a family member or a friend.
The familymember, or friend, then celebrates later on if prices appreciate, or celebrates with the sharing of tax deductions, etc.
If your current financial condition is just a temporary setback, then the mortgage company and everybody else wants you to keep your home.
Watch out for those that ask you to sign things without understanding what you are signing and do not take their words for it! I tried helping a person that signed his deed away to an unscrupulouse "helpful" person.
If you just don't care, then you may want to keep your pillow and blankets, rather than the door. I hear it is a little drafty where you might end up.
I wish you the best of luck! We all need it!
In your same shoes!
