Do we need to get a new mortgage or can I just be added on?

Not my house but my daughters by xnormal88 from Coffeyville, Kansas. Jun 15th 2021 Reply

There are some potential issues here. Yes, your daughter could add you to the Title, but this will not add you to the loan. The lender will not talk to someone that is not on the loan if you have questions. There could also be trouble for your daughter. If you are sued and lose, the judgement holder could get the courts to force your daughter to sell the home to satisfy your obligation. Same with any of your creditors. There can also be some benefits. If your daughter's loan could be refinanced into a better loan (lower rate, payment etc.) and you provide value to the transaction that gets her a better deal on the loan, it would also put you on the loan. If you or your daughter want a clearer picture of the pros and cons for your specific situation, connect with a Loan Officer Licensed in the state the property I located in.

the only way to add someone "to the mortgage", is by doing a new mortgage. You can add someone to ownership of the property... Pretty easy. Just call any title company and tell them that is what you want to do.
