Sell Subject to existing loan
How can you Sell the property Subject to existing loan? Subject to existing loan is a transaction when a buyer assumes or takes over debt payments of the seller. This is an ideal case for sellers that have very little or no equity. Another case where this can be very beneficial is if the owner is behind on payments and facing foreclosure, or who owes more for a property than it is worth.
In the ”subject to” transaction the buyers take over the debt payments of the seller and make payments for the seller on seller’s behalf.
Buyer issues a promissory note to the seller. Seller deeds/transfers the property to the buyer. If the buyer defaults, seller can start foreclosure process and gets the property back. Buyer will lose all down payment and closing costs that were paid when property has been purchased.
