    You must file a quit claim deed and the other person has to sign it. This releases you from the deed. Also, the other person can refinance and not inlucde you on the new note.

    Most lenders will NOT remove someone from the loan without a complete refinance. Sorry!

    But you can always try to call your lender/servicer (probably NOT the same person that made the loan unless you went to a credit union or a bank) and ask them for yourself. But when I turned 18 I couldn’t even remove my mom’s name from my checking account; I had to open up a brand new account!

    When the bank made the loan they ran the numbers with both you and the other person. There is no clause for removing someone from the loan. You probably have to refinance… but check with your lender.

    Sorry but when you sign a contract or a loan it is your obligation to pay. The only way I could think of out of this is if the other person on the loan goes with you and agrees to take on the total obligation. That would then be up to the person holding the mortgage if they will make out a new loan with only the first person on the note. It would be worth asking.

    Nope, yer tied in, maybe you learned a lesson about co-signing…
