LOOKING TO PURCHASE A HOME WITH PARENT BUT THE OTHER HAS A TAX LIEN WILL THIS AFFECT US?

Hello,

My mother and I are looking to purchase a house together but our broker told us they would have to run my dads credit aswell to ensure he had nothing on his report that can affect the loan process. We live in California and apparently here the "what's mine is yours and your is mine" rule is enforced. I checked my dad credit report and he has a tax lien we knew nothing about (my mom and I). My parents had seperated a few years back and got back together so this happened while they were each filing taxes seperate. Will this affect my mom and I in our home buying? We did not want him to be part of the process since we knew his credit was not the best but were told since he will be living with us they have to run his credit. Is this normal?

Since you are in CA, a community property state the answer here is state specific.  In a non-community property state, all you would have to do is buy the house with your mom and you are fine, the lien would not attach.  However, in CA my impression is that the lien will attach to your house so no one will give you a mortgage without it being satisfied.  Check with a local titile company attorney, they will give you the definitive answer.  The issue is not his credit, but whether the lien will attach to the property.

Re: LOOKING TO PURCHASE A HOME WITH PARENT BUT THE OTHER HAS A TAX LIEN WILL THIS AFFECT US?

is the tax lien a manageable amount?

can he start paying?

 

if under $25,000 and he sets up a payment plan with the irs using AUTO DEBIT.... they will remove the lien.

I believe it is 15,000 and he has been making payments on it since July of this year. I do not believe its on auto pay, I will look into that.

 

Thank you
