Upside Down and Reverse Mortgages
An "upside down" mortgage is one in which more money is owed to the bank than a property is actually worth. This is becoming more common as house values fall. It's also something we see in probate court as elders choose reverse mortgages as a way to finance retirement and medical needs. Beneficiaries may find that the family home now carries a high mortgage.
For Sale by Owner
For sale by owner (FSBO) transactions require special care to protect the interests of buyers and sellers. The real estate team at Burr Legal Services can represent either party, ensuring that proper disclosures have been made and proper steps taken to ensure a smooth transfer of title during the home sale.
