If your friend bought a house with her boyfriend and her name is the primary and they broke up how can she switch the name of the primary to his name if he wants the house and she is moving out?

If everything else is ok, simply have all parties fill out a "quit-claim deed" and file it at the county recorders office. If there are other issues, like mortgages, credit concerns and liability, it would be good to employ the services of an attorney or other real-estate professional to assist with changing everything out of your friend's name. If there are credit issues, make certain that your friend does it right. If the boy-friend can't get a loan in his name it may be necessary to sell the home outright. If the boyfriend refuses to sell, unfortunately your friend may be stuck with having her name on the mortgage until something causes a significant change in status. That's a potentially bad situation.

== There are two issues here that can easily be solved by refinancing in the boyfriend's name, based on his salary. At that time, they can rewrite the deed in his name only--she will do a quit claim at that time. Otherwise, she could end up paying a mortgage without her name being on the deed.

Otherwise, they need to sell the house. Since they are going separate ways, the best thing is to resolve the issue now before he has sole possession.

Addition to the above answers A quit claim deed will only transfer title of the property and will not transfer the financial liability. If the underlying mortgage is "assumable" then it may be possible remove your friend from the note. The boyfriend must also qualify based soley on his income and credit (unless another person is willing to help him).

If your boyfriend isn't "man" enough to tell him to stop it, get a more mature boyfriend. That's disrespectful of you and sends the message that he doesn't care. Dump the bum. I disagree and feel it's between you and your male friend and you need to communicate. It's possible your male friend could be a little jealous or he's letting your boyfriend know he'd better treat you right and he's not aware he's doing anything that annoys you or your boyfriend. I think your boyfriend has handled this very well (some guys would have had a few unsavory words or taken a sock at your male friend) but your boyfriend shows maturity and NOT a lack of interest. Get moving, talk to you friend because it's between the two of you and has nothing to do with your boyfriend.

It's easy enough to keep in touch with people by email. This does not commit you to consider this guy as your boyfriend; you are free to move on to another boyfriend, while still keeping in touch with your former boyfriend who will now just be a friend, if that is what you prefer.

Leave the past in the past and unless you are thinking of getting back with your ex then keep moving forward. Give your present best friend your number.

be open and honest, ask him how he would feel if a smoking hot guy moved in with you that he never met, try to get him to see both sides. oh and about the smoking hot guy, if your boyfriend says he doesn't care then he is full of it

make sure he has your number and you have his to stay in touch

Don't tell your friend your moving unless you have some good news with ,try and find a way that you can connect with them even though your away from them ,that way it wont be as heartbreaking on them.
