I am currently working on a short sale with Wells Fargo. Homeowner had a second loan that Ocwen eventually started handling. My client has filed for chapter 7 and was discharged. I tried to get a lien release from Ocwen but they won't even discuss this. They want a portion of that sale and primary bank is not getting that much to begin with. Is this normal practice? Any way around it?
You will need to process the short sale with Wells Fargo and Ocwen. If a motion to extinguish a mortgage lien through a BK is not requested and granted then the mortgage lien still will need to be settled even if it was included in the BK to complete a short sale.
If you have any questions or would like assistance please do not hesitate to reach out to me as my door is always open.
