Getting Name off of a Mortgage
My ex-boyfriend and I purchased a coach home together 2 years ago. I moved out of the home 3 months ago. My name can not be removed from the mortgage via refinancing because he consistantly made the mortgage payments late while we were together wihtout notifying me they were late. He needs to build his credit up over the next year in order to refinance. In the mean time my name is still on this mortage and I want it off. And I would like to receive my half of the value of the property. Can I sue him in small claims court and force him to sell the house?

Re: Getting Name off of a Mortgage
Hello. Your options are
limited, but you might be
successful if you file what
is called a partition suit.
Your interests would ultimately be divided by the court and the mortgage would be paid off.
