Still getting a mortgage loan with a foreclosure? - Located in ChicagoI decided I wanted to buy a home so after speaking with a few lenders I made the decision to go forward with a pre-approval. It showed on my credit I had a foreclosure. I had no idea what it was and after much investigation I learn that it is the home my ex wife and I bought some years ago. 1) I had no idea I was still responsible for the mortgage since I signed over the deed to her and thought that was it 2) I had no idea she foreclosed on the home. Is there still a way to get a mortgage loan I have stable income and good credit of 739? I would hate to think that my ex wife foreclosing on the home (I handed over to her during our divorce),without me knowing will keep me from getting a loan and buying a new home.October 02 2013 - Manhattan00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
