The hoouse is in foreclosure & not FORECLOSED upon. Do not lose time & get pre-approved from a lender & re-finance onto your name. But in one case a lender changet the name on the deed when the husband died into wife's name. Talk to the lender if this is possible.
Do not lose time.
Shannon you should contact the mortgage company at once, make sure you have a copy of the death certificate. Ask for the home retention department. The should be able to assist you. You may also want to contact the attorney that handles the estate to see if they can assist. good luck working things out and my deepest sympathy for the loss of your father.
