How can I protect my excellent credit score and get rid of or get out of an upside down mortgage?My house was bought for $370K brand new, a bigger house around the corner sold for $150K. My financial partner in the house just got laid off and I want to protect my credit (but I don't care if I keep the house or not and I can't afford it alone). Our Lender said we can't get modification loan because our mortgage is current and the loan is a good loan. What's my best option at saving my credit (866)?January 07 2009 - Hesperia00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
