I am wondering if this legal argument would work in the scenario described below. The scenario is hypothetical, but I wrote it in the first person as if it is happening to me now (which it isn't) just to keep things simple. I filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and received my final discharge. In the bankruptcy, I surrendered my home because it is worth less than the balance due on the first and second mortgages. The bankruptcy trustee abandoned the property because it has no equity. So, now my bankruptcy is over and I still own the property. I already moved out of the property and I don't want to keep it. The property is now in foreclosure and all I want to do is get my name off the foreclosure lawsuit as a defendant so it won't show up on my credit report. I called the mortgage company and I asked if I could do a deed in lieu of foreclosure but the person I spoke to said they don't do that. So, here's my idea. I go to a stationery store, buy a deed and fill it out deeding the property to the Plaintiff mortgage company, and then file and record the deed. Then I file a Motion to Dismiss the foreclosure lawsuit for failure to state a claim for which relief could be granted. In the argument supporting the motion, I would provide documentation showing that I received a bankruptcy discharge and am no longer personally responsible for the mortgage debt or any deficiency that might result after the foreclosure. I would also provide an affidavit stating that I no longer occupy the premises and that I have already surrendered any ownership interest in the property that I might have to the Plaintiff by recorded deed. Therefore, there is no longer any cause of action against me and I should be dismissed as a defendant in the action. And maybe I would add that continuing the legal action against me under these circumstances would be a misuse of judicial process. Any chance of this idea working in a court of law?
