  • I'd go to a reputable lawyer first. Maybe you can assume her loan or you can do a rent to buy loan?Lawyers fees vary from free consult to a nominal charge. Be careful!

  • You're asking about debt to income ratio. Do you have money to put down on the house? 20 percent of the purchase price? If so, and if your debt to income ratio is good (in other words, you're not carrying too much debt compared to your earnings) then you should be able to get a loan.

  • There are many factors to consider:
    How much is the home worth
    What is the sales price
    How much do you have saved for a down payment
    what is the total amount of all of your debt(s)
    How much can you afford to pay out a month?

    You can email me if you want with any questions:
