Assuming someone else's mortgage in Idaho is possible, but it depends on several factors such as the lender's approval, the terms of the mortgage, and the specific circumstances. Generally, if the mortgage agreement is assumable, you may be able to take over the mortgage and assume responsibility for the remaining debt.


However, most mortgages today include a due-on-sale clause, which means that the loan must be repaid in full if the property or ownership changes. This clause allows the lender to collect the full balance of the loan if the property is transferred without their consent. Therefore, you will need to contact the lender and inquire about assuming the mortgage, and they will determine whether or not they allow assumptions.


It is important to note that assuming a mortgage does not relieve the original borrower from their obligations. They may still be responsible if the new borrower defaults on payments. Additionally, assuming an existing loan may require you to meet certain qualification criteria set by the lender.


It is highly recommended to consult with a real estate attorney or a mortgage professional to understand the specific requirements and legal implications of assuming someone else's mortgage in Idaho.
