My sister called tonight and asked me an odd question: she and her dh have been living in a mobile home for 7 years that his father, soley holds the mortgage. Anyways my BIL father died 8 or so years ago and the continued to make the payments to the bank while living in it. She is now wondering if they are legally liable for that mortgage Neither of them is on the loan in any way. They want to walk away from this mobile home and buy a new house. I told her I didn't think so but could I be wrong?
