Hi

I lost my retired husband age 52 in 2006 due to a heartattack and he also had cancer, He was a big drinker everyday and night. He was not living at the home for the last years of his life and was supposed to be paying the bills. I was a stay at home mom so I had no income, about 3 months before he passed away he told me he did a chapter 13 and in 3 more months it would be out of the stay period, he had included the home in this and sign his part of the mortgage away but my name still remained but he had not paid on the Mortgage payments for 7 months before he did the chapter 13 unknown to me. When he passed away I went through papers he had and found the lawyer he used for the chapter 13 and I called her and asked how could he do this without me signing anything (the chapter13) I was told he didnt need to because he was signing away his responsibility to the Mortgage, I ask her when the stay was up and I was told any day. I right away called the Mortgage lender and talked this out with them the papers for foreclosure was on their desk ready to go to their lawyer but had not yet and I ask if I could pay the arrearage and was told yes, so I use the small insurance check I got from what he had from he had work, I was so glad I had that check to pay for that and at least i would not lose my home.

I soon found out He also was having the water bill tagged to the property taxes which was years 2004-2006. I had no idea of any of this until he passed away, I managed to pay 2004 and now IM trying to pay 2005 and its not looking good it 1,400 and I have until March 31st 2008 I only get half of what he was getting from his retirement 1,60.00 The County can't help me (DHS) because they said they have to pay all back property taxes due they cant just pay 1 year and it goes over the amount they allow of 2,000.

IM trying hard to pay everything my Mortgage with is only 289.00 a month but its very hard to do everything on small amount I get seeing I have other bills also and have to eat I can only get 29.00 a month in food help from the county, and no cash help. I also was left with a home that is really bad holes all over in walls from being punched by him and big windows with air leaks in all windows, no proper flooring its all come up broken cupboards that look embarrassing and its just the whole house it looks so bad IM embarrassed to have any1 over. The basement is full of stuff if something wasn't any good he would throw it down there and thru the years its just pack with junk that's no good. I cant even buy clothes or other things I need, its really bad

I cant need any credit at all because he wasn't paying anything and when I was paying for my credit that was in my name I no longer that the funds when he left the home, I was getting no money from him only a few here and there to get some food but not enough of that to get thru the month. No one will touch me and all I want is a chance to either get a loan so I can fix the house up just enough to have it look nice, and pay off bills such as property taxes and catch Mortgage up 3 months worth. I know this sounds unreal but I can supply pictures of rooms throughout my home as embarrassing as it is, but I have to do something Im so depressed and dont want to do anything far as going places, just so unhappy and losing my husband also even though we was not living together and all he did I still feel bad today because he died and im just lost to all, and don't know what to do im scared I might lose my home if things don't get better, even though its not much its all I have.

Does anyone have any help or idea how I can do this? I need help fast and I just can't seen to find any.

Dear soulight, Thank you very much for your thoughts, it seems you are in USA, perhaps I should have clarified I am in Australia. Also on question on medication we have a health care card which helps a lot, however it still costs us $70 to $80 per month for medications, once again Thank you for your care J & N

I have a home on the southside of Chicago that has recently gone into foreclosure. I have no job and have had tenants in there who hopefuly are gone out of the house. I do not have any help in fixing it up and want to know if anyone knew any way to turn this situation around. Does anyone know or have any suggestion of what I can do quickly. I have served notice to the tenants in January. A lawyer is presently working on the eviction and I'll have my brother go by there tomorrow to see if he sees anyone in the house or if anyone would answer. I would appreciate any help that anyone may offer. Thank you red1
