My mother in-law lives in Tennessee and has been living in the home that she and my late father-in-law purchased over 40 years ago. He ended up using the house as collateral for an installment loan he took out that still has a balance of about 85,000 on it. When he died 7 years ago, my mother-in-law took over paying the installment loan. She's in her 70's and has had some health issues and wants to stay in the house and her daughter wants to buy the house (her daughter lives in the home with her anyway) but they are running into problems getting this done because my mother-in-law's name is only on the deed to the house, not the note. What steps should they take in order to get my mother-in-law's name added to the note so that she can sell the house to my sister-in-law? She's tried reaching out to the loan company, CitiFinancial ,but they are unwilling to cooperate.
