Can I be removed from the mortgage I share with my boyfriend?

I have a contract on a home and we're supposed to close in one week. My boyfriend and I are both on the mortgage loan. I tried to get the mortgage broker to switch it to just be in my boyfriend's name, without me involved. Well, he dragged his feet and today told me to do so would take another 21 days which... show more I have a contract on a home and we're supposed to close in one week. My boyfriend and I are both on the mortgage loan. I tried to get the mortgage broker to switch it to just be in my boyfriend's name, without me involved. Well, he dragged his feet and today told me to do so would take another 21 days which would put us behind on closing and my bf is pressuring me to get over it so we don't have to postpone. So, My question is, if I am on this joint mortgage loan with my bf, and something bad happens between us and I want out of the relationship, what can I do. I've heard I can have my name removed from the loan so that the lender can never come after me for funds in the future? is this true? Is it expensive/complicated? Or is the only option to refinance the mortgage just in his name? What is the process for this? Thanks for any help. I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. Want to know my options should something go wrong with us... Thanks :)
