You can transfer a mortgage to someone else as long as the loan is assumable. The new borrowers will be treated as if they were initiating a new loan for themselves. If your mortgage is not assumable, you still have options even if your lender says no.
Likewise, people ask, can I take over someone else’s debt?
You can take responsibility for someone else’s debt in a variety of ways, depending on the type of debt involved. In most cases, it’s as simple as contacting the creditor, giving your personal information, and agreeing to become a guarantor for the debt.
Just so, how do mortgage transfers work?
What Is a Transfer of Mortgage? Transfer of mortgage is a transaction where either the borrower or lender assigns an existing mortgage (a loan to purchase a property—usually a residential one—using the property as collateral) from the current holder to another person or entity.
How does a transferable mortgage work?
Porting your mortgage is when you take your existing mortgage deal to a different property. You’ll still have the same lender, terms and interest rate, though you’ll have to repay your existing mortgage and then resume it with your new property.
However, if you take out a loan in someone else’s name – either with or without their consent or knowledge – it is illegal and, quite simply, you are committing fraud. … This is fraud because you are misleading the lender by making them think it’s someone else who’s applying to borrow from them.
Process to Transfer your Home Loan
Obtain a consenting letter from the existing bank along with the outstanding loan amount. Provide these documents to the new bank that you wish to transfer the housing loan balance. The new lender will then pay off the balance due to your old lender.
