Property

Owning property has been the foundation of America since proclaiming independence in 1776. Becoming a property owner has become considerably more difficult in the past four years as banks collapsed and mortgage providers repossessed homes in record number.

The level of foreclosure property is staggering, with estimates of over 6 million repossessed homes since 2007. While foreclosure rates dropped in 2011 they are expected to increase in 2012.

To make matters worse, an increase in bank foreclosures could cause home values to decline further. This could lead to an increase in the number of people that enter into strategic foreclosure.

Take Over Payments

Take over payments refers to a strategy used to buy real estate with no money down. Assuming home mortgage loan payments is a relatively common practice amongst real estate investors, but individual buyers can participate in this home buying strategy as well.

Take over payments is known as Subject To and involves transferring property rights while leaving the loan intact. The property rights are 'subject to' fulfillment of the contract. One crucial aspect of Subject To sales is most mortgage loans include a 'due on sale' clause which grants banks the right to demand payment in full when property is sold.

Subject To

Subject to refers to a real estate agreement which allows buyers to take over mortgage payments through assignment of ownership rights. This strategy can be used by individuals who do not qualify for traditional lending and is sometimes used by real estate investors to obtain properties from individuals facing foreclosure.

Subject to is also referred to as Sub2 and Subject 2. Individuals who desire to conduct additional online research should utilize all three references to maximize available information. Subject to transactions can provide benefits to all parties involved. However, this type of transaction is best handled by a real estate lawyer to ensure proper documents are submitted through the courts and legal contracts drafted to protect all parties involved.

Warranty Deed

A warranty deed used with real estate transfers guarantees the property has a clean title with no liens attached. Liens are used when borrowers default on creditor loans, owe taxes to the Internal Revenue Service, or have outstanding child support or alimony payments. There are two types of real estate warranty deeds - General or Limited.

A general warranty deed guarantees the seller owns the real estate and has authority to sell it. General warranty deeds protect the buyer if the seller engages in non-disclosure. This might include not reporting creditor or tax liens or judgments not reported by the seller.
