  1. There are two separate issues here, who is on title to the property, and who is/are the borrowers on the loan. As a general matter, if the mortgage payments are being paid no one is going to foreclose and you will not "lose" the house. If you want to take your mother's name off title to the house, that is usually pretty easy. If there is substantial equity in the property, you might look into putting the property into a trust to avoid any estate tax and probate issues.
