Re: suvivorship deeds

In general the suviving owner is responsible for the mortgage on the property. Whether they can assume the obligation or need to refinance depends on the terms of the mortgage.

If the surviving owner is the beneficiary of the insurance policy then he or she could use it to pay off the mortgage.
