What is the name of your state? south carolina
My wife's ex-husbands name is still on the deed for the house that I live in with my wife. There is also a second mortgage on the house in my wife's name and her ex. In the divorce decree, the ex was ordered to assume the remainder of that second mortgage. This second mortgage has not yet been paid off. I want to get the deed of the house in mine and my wife's name.
My questions are:
1. Will refinancing the first mortgage get mine and her name on the deed?
2. If we refinance the first mortgage, will the second mortgage have to be paid off or refinanced by the ex?
3. What is the route to take on solving this problem?
Thanks so much for any help you can give me.
