Sometimes loans were made with only one spouse on the loan. What happens to the non-borrower spouse when a house goes into foreclosure or sells at a short sale? If someone is not on the loan a short sale should not impact their credit or ability to obtain future loans. This should be verified wit...

One spouse wants to remain in the house, especially to preserve the children’s habitual residence. However, the new financial situation may render the monthly mortgage payment unaffordable and th...
