What happen if a married couple have a mortgage and one of the die before the mortgage have finished.
Hi there
The first step to do in this case is to study if they contracted an insurance for this case. Often banks forces clients to make this kind of insurance what supose that the insurance company pays the part of the pass away person
Well, if the insurance does not exist, the partner alive has to tell the bank that one of them is died and the bank could ask for another warranties as they have lost one debitor. Honestly most people do not do it and nothing happens. The problem is that when we comunicate that, the bank directly put harder conditions.
So, check ig there is a insurance and if does not exist do nothing.

Are you saying if there is no insurance on the mortgage it is best to leave it and carry on paying the mortgage even though the partner has died. Would I be breaking Spanish law if I do this?
Yes. No fine penalty if you do thatMost people do this wayanother problem is if you want to sell it out but if not there is not a problemThank you
