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