I have spent months trying to get the condo refinanced. Now that I have completed the process, the closing is now on hold because the quit claim is not signed.
Take a look at the marital settlement agreement and the final judgment. I typically include that the Final Judgment and/or MSA may be recorded in lieu of a deed. If there is such a clause, record the final judgment and/or MSA after checking if that will satisfy the mortgage company. If the clause is not present, check to see if there is a document cooperation clause. Assuming there is, you may consider filing a Motion for Contempt and/or Enforcement through the family court. If your closing date is coming up, ask the court to set this on an expedited basis citing the reasons. Lastly, if none of those clauses are present in either the MSA or Final Judgment, you can always bring a Quiet Tiltle action. Before filing anything, I suggest you consult a local Family Law attorney to discuss your case in greater detail and learn your options. Good luck.
