Quick question

Im moving into a new house next month.. The house is in my fathers name.. Would I need to apply for my own mortgage for the home or would they just switch it over into my name?

Re: Quick question

They can't just transfer the mortgage into your name.  You'd have to apply and be approved for a mortgage.

^^ Are you buying the house from your Father or is he "gifting" you the house equity or is it a rental? As pointed out above, to have the mortgage in your name you have to 1) own the property and 2) apply and be approved for a mortgage. Your mortgage would pay off his mortgage.

Also Dallas, are FHA loans assumable with qualifying? Or is that what you mean by the above?

Re: Quick question

i guess they could assume it.

 

but i helped a friend recently work on a loan mod to take over her mom's house. mom had died, so maybe that was a different deal.

but certainly worth the phone call. much cheaper than a purchase.
