Generally a judgment lien can be executed against any real property belonging to the debtor. Seizure and forced sale of such property however is seldom possible due to the state laws governing the issue and the personal and real property exemptions allowed to the debtor/defendant.

The executor of the estate has the option of continuing to pay the mortgage and thereby continuing to own the property (which is presumably a house) or selling it. When you sell a house that has a mortgage, some of the purchase price will go to you, based on your equity in the house, and some will go to pay off the mortgage. If there is little equity in the house, or if the housing market is very depressed, you may realize little or no profit on the sale of the house, but you won't have to continue paying the mortgage.

Home equity is something a homeowner builds in his house. When a person buy a house, they make payments on said house. Then over time, naturally a property becomes more valuable. So when a house is bought and you live there for 10 years you build equity in the house. To find out about equity in Florida, contact a Real Estate agent.

Equity release schemes are also called lifetime mortgages or reverse mortgages. They allow someone to take money out of the equity paid into their house and the house goes to the bank when they die.

Equity release is re-mortgage plan that makes it possible to release equity on a mortgaged property. But, as soon as the equity amount is paid, you have to clear all the outstanding mortgages on your house. There are some equity release providers who deduct the outstanding mortgages from the value of your house to repay the loan.

Adding on to your house will in fact add to the equity of your home. The amount that will be added, however, will depend on things such as the cost of the project, where you live, and how much your house is worth.

Equity is the proportion of those assets you own, compared to the debt on those assets. An example would be a house. A house is an asset. The equity is the amount of the mortgage that is paid off plus any appreciation the value of the house. Same with a company. Its the difference between what you own and the debt or liabilities. Assets minus liabilities equals equity. You have equity in assets.

In a chapter 7, you can keep the house if there is no equity or the equity is exempt under the applicable exemption statute, or if you can pay the trustee the amount of the equity from some other exempt asset. If the house is in foreclosure, you usually would have to file a chapter 13. In a chapter 13, if the equity in the house, if not exempt, you may have to pay something to the unsecured creditors, increasing the amount of the plan and thus the plan payments. But you get to keep the house.

Equity is the value of something you own, like a house, or car, minnus what you owe on it. For example, if you bought a house for 100,000 dollars, and after five years you owe 85,000 dollars on it, and the house is worth 110,000 dollars, then your home equity would be 25,000 dollars.

All of it. If the deposit is the down payment at the time of the purchase all of it goes to the equity in the house. Part of your monthly payment other than interest only as well goes towards the equity of your house. See the amortization table of your loan. if you have loan amount, interest rate and term put all these into the amortization table it will show how much of your monthly payment goes into the equity of the house.
