She needs to get real.
Her credit is getting damaged.
- the mortgage amount (sub2) or the 600 a month as a L/O. The sub2
is better in many ways
- She gets the benefit of you fixing her credit by making the
payments. Even on the L/O I would have the payments handled
through a third party so that she does not just blow the money. She
obviously does not believe she needs to be prompt with the payments
- After about 2 years you will refinance or similar so that she is off the
loan and title (completely off).
This is a business and you are providing a service for a fee. The service
is saving her bacon and the fee is your gain later. She lost her chance
for much more when she stopped making the payments.
That would be my offer.
BTW - You want the Sub2 in that it controls the title a bit more. If she
fails to pay someone else and tried to lien her assets the condo will not
get hit. If you have a L/O with her your position is not quite as strong.
Get the option recorded if you go that route so you predate later
