    No. Not at all. The property is already collateral for the loan. They need to work out a payment with the lender (not likely), or sell the place if possible. Sometimes, keeping a property is like swimming with a bowling ball … letting it go might be the fresh start they need.
  2. Doc Bill says:
    The laws vary from community to community, but generally speaking, such a conversion will not void any liens or prevent foreclosure. Only a lawyer familiar with local regs can give you the answer you need for your particular situation.
  3. Caveat Emptor says:
    No. The lien is on the existing title and it cannot be “converted” anyway.

    Of course not. If that were the case, then everyone would be placing their properties into land trusts, and there would be no foreclosures.

    Wow. Some friends, they want to both steal the banks money and keep the house. Real up standing Americans there.

    No, this will not effect a foreclosure in any way.

    They are not entitled to keep both the money and the house. They have to give up one or the other.

    Good answers…but you have to have free and clear title to do a land trust…and if the property is in foreclosure, than a mortgage is involved…hence… no chance.

    Good luck.
