I am assuming your husband settled all equitable distribution. If the ED states that if the mobile home sells, then the ex gets such and such of the profit, then I don’t think she has any claim. If the deed is in his name only, then it is his home.

If he dies and she is still on the mortgage loan, TECHNICALLY the loan company can persue HER to make payments if you dont continue to make them.

If her name is not on the deed she does not have an interest in the house. I am assuming that they are legally divorced and there is no order or agreement that requires them to share the equity.

My husbands ex-wifes name is still on the Mortgage Loan for the house, we pay the monthly bill. She has NEVER made a payment. The DEED is in his name only…

The ? I have is this, “What if he dies today could she come up and make me move out since the Mortgage is in his/her name and not mine?”

I know we need to refinance to remove her name but NO ONE will refinance mobile homes :frowning:

I just want to make double sure that if something happened to my husband, and I had to sell the house could she be intitled to 1/2 of what it would sell for?

Thanks in Advance
