Providing you with the knowledge and tools needed to succeed with Short Sales
One of the HAFA changes is that the junior lien holders will be able to get up to $8,500. I thought that this change, along with the others, went into effect on June 1, 2012 but a review of the Directive says that this change goes into effect immediately. (Page 18) Is this solely at the discretion of the negotiator? Has anyone had a junior lien holder to get $8,500? I have a short sale that may hinge on the $2,500 difference.
Would you mind providing a link to this directive? I am having trouble loctaing it. Thanks.
Never mind...found it right on the site. I assume these dont apply to Fannie or Freddie?
I don't think that these changes apply to Fannie or Freddie. I just want to know if anyone has seen this increase go into effect with any other their short sales. I know that the banks may not want to implement this change until they have to.
Ok...I have a similar issue. B of A is the first with selective service portfolio as the 2nd. MI came in at zero hour and demands $3000 at closing (B of A had approved $2000) with the seller signing a promissary note for $7000. The balance on the second note is only $17000. I inform MI that it is a HAFA approved short sale and seller can't contribute nor can they sign a promissory note. They come back and tell me they are now "entitled" to $8500 as of June 1st. I go back to B of A who informs me that it is $8500 OR 8% of the principle balance...whichever is LESS. The MI company is not budging and is insisted that they are "due" the $8500 and not %8. Does anyone have any info that could help me with this? Thanks.
