You are obligated for paying the loan if you signed the mortgage. If your name was added to the title after the mortgage was granted then you received your interest subject to the mortgage. If it isn't paid the lender will take possession of the property by foreclosure. If your name was on the title prior to the mortgage and the lender didn't have you consent to the mortgage then the lender made a big mistake and can only take possession of the interest of the person who did sign the mortgage.

Unfortunately, if you've signed your rights away you are only removed from title and are still obligated to the mortgage. The only way to get out of the mortgage is for the person holding title to refi and have your name removed from the mortgage.

The name on a mortgage cannot be changed. A different person can become obligated on the mortgage if he guarantees it or the mortgage is refinanced.

I am a mortgage broker and the answer to this question lies in the section of the mortgage document entitled: Joint and Several Liability. No you are not responsible for the note. The promissary note is the promise to pay. The mortgage clause will say that any Any borrower who co-signs the mortgage (security instrument) but does not execute the Note is co-signing only to mortgage, grant adn convey his/her interest in the property and is not personally obligated to pay the sums secured by the mortgage... this goes for the signer of the note extending or modifying the mortgage by perhaps getting a home equity line. You are not obligated financially. Are you on the title? That is the question. If you are on the title you own the home without any financial responsibility for the home and both of you on the Title must agree to sell the home, and one without the other cannot convey their interest in the property.

You have to apply for a mortgage jointly for both people to be listed on a mortgage. You can however have your name added to a title of a house with simple paperwork.

Yes. If you inherit a piece of property, including a house with a mortgage, you are legally obligated to pay its bills.
