    Is there any legal authority for the proposition that a co-borrower takes title to the property? Thanks.

    Can a friend be a co-borrower or a co-signer in a FHA loan? I have heard conflicting information on this topic. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    After paying a mortgage for almost a year I checked my credit history and it turns out that I have NO real State loan listed under my name. The mortgage company said that since I am a Co-borrower and my husband is the primer borrower, they have to report our payment history only under SSN.
    Is that true? How can I get them to start to report the payment history under our both SSN?
    Thank you

    My partner and I split 5 years ago and left me with the mortgage. The original deed has me as the borrower and then the co-borrower. At one of our refinancing the co-borrower sighned first then I sighned for the refinance, thus puting the co-borrower as the borrower and me as the co-borrower. The original deed that I have has me as the borrower and the other as the co-borrower. Can the change legaly at a refinance? My real question is : how do I get the house in my name only? Remind you I have payed on the house for 5 years and have never been late, I have payed extra on the mortgage to try get it payed off early.
