First off im not filing for bankruptcy its my stepfather.
March of 07 I co-signed with him on a house,
He moved out about 8months ago. I have been taken over the payments and living there.
So November of 2008
I was in the process of refinancing and
I find out he filed for bankrupcty…
So need-less to say.
This house is also filed under his bankruptcy
Me and him already agreed on letting me take over the house.
So My Title Atty called and advise me of two things i will need from my step father:
- Getting a Quit-claim Deed so he can be taken off the deed with some other paperwork
- Getting the courts permission to release the house from the bankrupcty case.
Now today: i called my step father atty and no answer
So i called the trustee listed on the paperwork from the court and asked what is needed for me to assume this house.
This i what he advise me…to write a letter offering something for the house.
he advise me he will not offer me any legal advice…so this is where im at now.
Im confused as fuck right now. what should i do?
I was going to write a letter stating that me and my stepfather agreed that i will be taking over the house and im currently in the process of refinancing and for me to complete this process i just need permission from the court to release this property to me and from bankruptcy case?
Should i offer something to the trustee as he stated
offering the principle balance of the loan so it can be paid off?
or what should i offer 1 dallor?
