My ex-partner recently died and a few years ago while I was with him he took out a 2nd mortgage loan on his house to clear his debts but I signed too- the loan people said I needed to sign because I lived there. The house was not in both our names- it was his house and I'm sure the loan was secured on his property. He said it would not affect me, they just needed to know who was living there. We split up nearly five years ago. I don't know where I stand with this. He had not been paying it, his mother says she has found a lot of horrible letters regarding this with my name on them too. I'm afraid I may be in a serious amount of debt.

Any thoughts or advice you could offer would be appreciated very much.

Hello Alison356 and welcome.

Do you know what has happened with the house?

I think that you may need to contact the lender to establish for certain whether this was a joint mortgage for which you share responsibility.

Let us know what you find out and we'll try to assist you further.
