What do I need to do if I can't catch up with the payments? 6 Answers as of May 24, 2013

I am divorced and remarried. My ex husband remained in our house and let it go into foreclosure. He was working on a loan re-modification and I signed an agreement for a quit claim. He has now died and I am not sure what if anything I need to do. I can't afford to catch up the payments.

You do not need to do anything. Just let the house go through the foreclosure process. His estate can worry about it. If you are concerned that you may be financially responsible you are not as you gave up any interest in the home via the quit claim deed.
