My condo has both a first mortgage and a home equity loan. I want to transfer that property into my living trust. Can I do this myself? Is there a problem since I have in essence two loans? Do I prepare the transfer deed(s) or can I ask the lende...
A home can be transferred into a living trust even with mortgages in place. I would advise you hire/consult with an attorney to do it but if you insist on the DIY route, you would need a grant deed from how you hold title now, granting it to your living trust. You will also need to fill out a PCOR form with the county recorder and have it all recorded with your county.See question
I am planning to buy a Tax sale Properties, but afraid to deal with bank foreclosure, how could I avoid it? Whats the outcome of the Quiet Title Action normally? what's the chance of winning? could I negotiate with lender of the property and take...
Typically the mortgages are non-transferable so they most likely won't let you assume it. You can contact them and try to work out a payoff. Quiet title actions are not easy to win. Depending on if you are buying the properties at tax sales or for HOA lien sales, the 1st mortgage will not be wiped out so you will only take it subject to their lien. If they foreclose, you are probably out whatever you paid. Your best bet is to try an negotiate with the lender but they are often not interested in dealing with a random 3rd party.See question

You may want to review your title policy and title insurance as well. Sometimes those companies can be resources or it may be their obligation to fix.See question

Your question is vague and impossible to answer. Do you mean if you are foreclosed by the 1st mortgage, would the 2nd be able to go after you? That would depend on what kind of 2nd it is (HELOC, purchase money, etc.). You need to clarify what your issue is and what you need protection for.See question

Once the sale is held and it is foreclosed, you are not obligated to pay rent to the former owner. Beware though, the new owner may attempt to evict you, quickly.See question
I have heard this could trigger a "due on sale" that would require me to pay the loan off.
I agree with my colleague. If you are setting up a basic revocable trust, you should be ok to put the house in it.See question
Can't find options to refinance my home which I am hoping I can keep. I've also been trying to modify it so that it could convert into a traditional/conventional but up to this point, I've been unsuccessful.
Are you in bankruptcy because the other 2 attorneys are assuming as much? If you are not in BK and just asking if you can get a mod on your loan that contains a balloon payment, then the answer is yes. It depends on your lender/servicer, your situation, etc. but if you are in review for a mod from your lender, you can request an option that would contain a balloon at the end and see what they say. I handled multiple mods w/balloons in place (although I would say a balloon is ideal but if you are focused on getting back on feet for short term, it can help).See question
tions per the National Mortgage Settlement?
You are entitled to ask but there is no requirement that any principal reduction be given. Just like there is no loan mod requirement, principal reduction is at the lender's discretion.See question

Who was on the loan agreement? Did you have any written agreement between the two of you? You would need more definite facts to proceed. Consulting with an attorney directly may be more helpful.See question
