Refinancing and closing cost

Dear Rosie66,

You probably will not have to pay any closing costs on the loan, since the loan will be in your husband’s name. However, you should check with the closing attorney, and have your husband check with the lender to be sure.

Good luck!

My husband and I are separating, and he is going to be staying in the home which is currently in both of our names. He is giving me half of the equity that is built up in the house, and is refinancing in order to remove my name from the deed. My question is: can I be forced to pay ANY of the closing costs for this new loan, since it is going to be entirely in his name?
