Dealing with Loans in the Context of Divorces, Death, and other Family Disruptions (Dec 2023)

Who gets the house is typically a big issue in divorce. There is often a lot of emotion tied to the house, especially if there are kids involved, and generally, one person wants to sell it more than the other. Realtors often have to deal with one uncooperative spouse when a sale is involved, and lenders often have to consider whether the one who wants to keep it can qualify on their own for a refi, home equity loan, or HELOC to buy out the other. Learn more about refinance concurrent to the divorce process, how to deal with a lender following a death, and when to advise a client to ask about assumptions, forbearance, and other mortgage-related scenarios.
