    My fiancé purchase a house with his ex-girlfriend in 2003 and separated the same year which she moved out and he continued to pay the mortgage until the end of 2007 (Both of their names are on the loan and deed). He stopped making payments because of insufficient income. He put the house up for sale and contacted the bank to see if they will accept a short sale on the house and they agreed. A buyer made an offer and the bank accepted but his ex-girlfriend refused to sign the papers the bank is asking both of them to sign to close on the house. The deadline for them to sign the paper work was October 13, 2008. She is aware of the foreclosure but refuses to do anything. She stated that the home is not her priority. Mail has been sent to her current residence informing her of the sale and the consequences of not selling the home but she refuse to respond to any of the letters. The real estate agent has even contacted her, but was cursed out for calling her and told the agent not to call her again. Is there any legal action that can be taken to get her to to do something to prevent a foreclosure? Is it possible to get her name off the property so something can get done with the property?

    The only way to get her name off the title (other than foreclosure) is a partition suit.

    That will take longer than the foreclosure.

    Tell the creditor that hubby will sign every paper they give him; then let the creditor deal with wifey.
