LOL! I'm sure by now that Soulpretty has solved or is in the process of dealing with her issues inasmuch as this question is 2.5 years old. Don't know about you folks but I'm going to start looking at dates from now on. No use beating a dead horse unless you really need points that bad. ... more

It is clear your prime intent is to sell the home.
As others have shared with you, that is going to be very problematic at this time.
You have four other options. Since all of the options have consequences, only an attorney is qualified to discuss them with you.
In your discussion with your attorney get a good understanding of:
1. Who owns the house.....really.
2. Who is responsible for the mortgage?
3. Are any persuasive mechanisms available
4. Can you reach an agreement for a fixed buyout right now, without a purchase offer?
5. In two years what will the situation be
6. What is your long term goal
7. What option(s) is most beneficial to you and those important to you.
This opportunity to sit with an attorney will be an exercise in acute listening.
In addition to what is said, make certain to hear what is not said. The action most appropriate will be cloaked in the description of the cascade of events that CAN happen should you choose a specific option. It is indeed this element that will create for you the leverage you need to get this home sold.....EVENTUALLY...most likely over a year away.
Without choosing to resolve this issue you are stuck! You can not buy another house. You can not move. You are very likely upside down if you purchased in 2007, the peak year. It's not going to be easy. It won't be pretty. But it is a pill you must take. Waiting only reduces the options available to you.

Wishing you the very best outcome.

Hello Sian,

If I understand correctly "they" are the children, and for the sale of your father's home, my suggestion would beto sell it as quickly as possible if you are sure about seeling the home, in order not miss the hot market activity.
Market usually slows down in the winter, you can get the best price from now unitl November.
Feel free to contact me for free consultation, I will be able to help you with any real estate questions that you might have.

Hey Timbyer723!

Can you give us all an update as to what's happening with your "friend and her BF"?

I'd really like to know because I have a young unmarried couple right now wanting to buy together and I'd love to add this story to my objections to them. Thanks! ... more

This could be as simple as going through Title to get it all cleared up. Please check with a Title company and an attorney to review everything to make sure your interests are protected. ... more
