Pasalo (Assume Balance): Sell a house and lot via Mortgage Assumption (overview)

Last Updated on January 11, 2021 by Jay Castillo | Filed under: - 2 Comments

Here’s an overview of “Pasalo” (assume balance) house and lot process. I was asked what’s the process to sell a house and lot via “assume balance” during an FB live hosted by Boost Gio. I gave an overview w/ an example where I sold our house (with Pag-IBIG housing loan).

This is applicable to properties with existing mortgage loans (Ex.Pag-IBIG housing loans). It would be a different process for properties under a contract-to-sell (CTS), I’ll discuss selling properties under a CTS (ex. foreclosed properties from Unionbank, RCBC, etc) in another video.

There’s also a different process for transfer of rights (ex. preselling na condo, etc.)

This video was recorded way back in November 29, 2018, I’m glad I found a recording. 🙂

I edited this to add notes on the screen for more clarity.
