The advantage of an interest only loan is that for a predetermined period of time you only have to pay the interest portion of your loan along with taxes and insurance. You do not have to pay on the principle of the loan. This option is best for people who expect to be making more money when the predetermined period is over. The more important question is what are the disadvantages of an interest only loan? Basically you can run across a few problems. The first one is that you are not paying down the principal of the home. That means the amount you bought your house for is still the amount you owe on it after the predetermined period is over. Second, you have to be prepared for the increased monthly payment after the interest only period is over. As mentioned above this type of loan is best for those individuals who expect to be making more money after the interst only period and also for those individuals who can take the difference they would have been paying monthly if the loan were conventional and invest it for the predetermined period.

If the loan by the Bank than it will be on your name. Do not pay loan if someone else as name to the loan.

Main advantage = money to work with. Main disadvantage = high interest rates. (If there is a low interest loan available, this may tip the advantage in your favor.)

The house would have been left subject to the loan. Either the estate has to pay off the loan or sell the house. Once that is done, then the assets can be distributed. One of the children could obtain a loan and buy the house from the estate.

I think it all depends on if you can get a loan to pay it off, if you already have a loan for the house then I say yes maybe, but u would want to make sure your loan payment is lower than what u were playing

If your aunt had already been diagnosed at the time she signed the loan she was not legally capable of signing a contract. However, your aunt's signature makes her legally responsible for payment of the loan until evidence is presented on her behalf that she was taken advantage of by your sister. You should consult with an attorney. Your sister's behavior should also be reported to the district attorney in your jurisdiction if she has taken advantage of a legally incapacitated person.

One advantage a house has is usually a yard. Having a yard increases the ability to enjoy one's property. Another advantage a house has is space and privacy.

The advantage is to increase the principal being paid on the loan which in turn will reduce the total interest paid on the loan whilch reduces the total number of required payments. So basically this allows you to save on total interest charges. But make sure your loan has no penalties for early payoff!
