My second mortgage was included in my bankruptcy. My first mortgage is for what the house is worth. Does someone who buys the house have to pay for the second mortgage?

The second mortgage lien is still out there... even though I don't have to pay it. Does someone who buys the house have to pay it? I am in Florida.

Any liens on title have to be released before a property can be conveyed from one owner to another. If you've got a second and wanted to sell the home, it would have to be paid off out of the proceeds of the sale (or by your own funds at or before closing. Hope that helps!
