“Do I Have to Claim this Home when Applying for a New Mortgage?”

“Do I Have to Claim this Home when Applying for a New Mortgage?”

 

Hey Joe, Can I ask you a question, when I claimed Bankruptcy I had a house that I kept. My Daughter lives in it and pays the Mortgage that is in my name. It does not show up on my credit report owing because of Bankruptcy.  So do I have to include this when I apply for a new house? If I do how will this affect me getting another house? I want to transfer to her but her and her husband both have bad credit and make about $50,000.00 a year and with 1 dependent. 

 

This is a common question for folks that filed bankruptcy and still have a home in their name. Since the home is still in their names yes, the asset and the mortgage must be disclosed on a mortgage application.

There is no simple answer.  What would work best is that I work with the daughter to improve credit so that she can qualify for the purchase of the home. No matter what, we will figure out a way to make it work.
