There are just a few--none that you want or should to do business with. (My opinion) Please call your mortgage company and ask about applying for a HUD asistance loan. They will reduce the payment that is manageable until your situation is resolved.

What happens when someones dies and leaves you a house with a mortgage?

What can happen and what will happen are often very different. Technically, death of a borrower is a "default event" for most mortgage loans, meaning that the bank can call the loan due and payable. This would typically force the inheritor to sell or refinance the home. However, if there is no interruption in payment, the lender may not be aware that a borrower has passed away for some time. The best thing to do is decide what will be done with the home. If it will be retained, refinance the loan once the ownership has been transferred legally to you. If you want to sell the home, you may continue making the payments while you market the home without involving the lender until you are ready. Remember that the lender does not know who you are, so be prepared to send any Will or Trust documents along with death certificates to the lender.

Your husband has the mortgage in his name only we also have mortgage insurance and we have the deed in both of our names if he dies would the mortgage company get the house or would the wife?

The mortgage insurance you are referring to is most likely the standard mortgage insurance that is on a loan above 80% of the value of the house. This MI covers the lender in case of the borrower defaulting on the loan. It does nothing to help the borrower. If you are on the deed then you still own the house if your husband dies but if you cannot either refinance the mortgage or continue to pay the monthly payments then the lender will ultimately foreclose on the house and repossess it. What you need is a life insurance policy that will pay off the balance on the mortgage in case of the death of the mortgage holder.

If you are a co-signer on a loan for a house and you refinance will your old debts be paid off?

Co-signer or co-borrower? A cosigner has no legal right to property, unless their name is on the title/deed. When refinancing a house, if there is a "cash out" transaction, that money can be used to pay outstanding debts. Usually this is a Home Eq. loan, but it can be a refinanced transaction. Although the debts are listed in the paper work, they are not automatically paid, unless there are specific contractual stipulations between the lender and borrower.

Can a lien be placed on a house for a personal loan debt if the loan payments are overdue?

Can banks go after spouse if the house is not in her name during a foreclosure?

The lender must first look to the property to be paid. The lender can only go after the person who signed to note. If the spouse is not on the note they can not seek recovery against her. If the lender completes a nonjudicial foreclosure (no court involvement) it can not look to the borrower for additional monies owed on the debt. The one action rule requires the lender to elect to seek recovery by foreclosing or suing the borrower. The only way the lender can go after the borrower and the property is if the lender files a judicial foreclosure action with the court and seeks a deficiency judgment against the borrower. If the wife did not sign the deed of trust in California or states that have deeds of trust, the non signing spouse can seek to have the deed of trust voided entirely as both spouses must sign the deed of trust to bind community property.
