  • parent deceased, I'm responsible for house but I want to sell

    My father passed in ’00. After his death, I found out my name was on the deed when my grandfather took me to the lawyer so he could sign a quit claim on the property, leaving my name on it. (I was 21)

    I moved in and started paying the mortgage—which is still in my dad’s name. I never rectified this with the mortgage lender, just continued to pay and put insurance on the house under my name.

    Now I want to sell & I’m not sure what steps to take since the deed is in my name, but the mortgage is not. $15,000 is still owed.

    Thanks in advance for ANY help you could give.

    What happens in a case like this is that you sign the conveyance deed and, from the dough you get from the buyer, you will pay the debt off.

    The title company will explain all the details.
