Actually, Catalina, they are not in violation of CFPB guidelines which state that a servicer/lender does not have to review for a short sale if the sale date is within 37 days. There are new CFPB guidelines as of Oct 4, 2017. Short sales will become more difficult.  Agents need to hire skilled negotiators that know how to deal with these banks and get the foreclosure sale postponed

I wanted to pick everyone's brain. I’m trying to start a short sale with SLS (I’ve never worked with them before) and now they’re coming up with this dumb excuse that a short sale is not an option because I should have started it no less than 30 business days (not calendar days) from the sale date (which is December 12th). Their website clearly states that they only need 30 CALENDAR days from receipt of documents to come up with an approval or denial.

I believe they are in violation of CFPB guidelines… can you assist?

Anyone I can contact to escalate the issue?

Comment by Russ Trinidad on August 8, 2017 at 12:17pm

Dimitri, I am currently going through a similar experience with SPS. In May 2017 I submitted a complete file. I call every 3 days to get status and never speak to the same person. A transaction manager is assigned to the file but is not anymore abreast of the file then the call center. Most of the time they say that the file is still in underwriting and no further documents are needed. When they do ask for updated documents (because they are expiring) its one at a time and each time it adds another 5 days. I have escalated to the ombudsman and filed complaints with CFPB but did not get any support from either. CFPB contacted SPS and SPS said they needed to update document. CFPB accepted their answer and closed my complaint. I have been doing short sales for 5+ years and SPS is by far the worse. My advice is to be proactive but also notify the buyers agent that it WILL take longer then a normal SS and to set the buyers expiations.

Thanks Tony, I actually didn't realize they might be working out of different location. I was tempted to mention CFPB but bit my tongue for now. Figured I would give them a good fight in few days if I don't get anywhere.

Dimitri  try to talk to only the Utah office and not the Florida office. There is a huge difference of customer service between these two offices.  When I call and ask if I have reached the Jacksonville office and told yes  I say thank you and hang up and repeat calling until I reach Utah. Most of the decision makers are in Utah. No way should your file be delayed because someone did not know how to scan. All they had to do was pull up your email again.  I challenge them with that stupid 30 day policy every time. I have even told them that they are violating CFPB guidelines

Comment by DIMITRI PETROVSKY on August 8, 2017 at 10:53am

This used to be the fastest and easiest company to work short sales through. Don't know what happened but they are weird. Have 2 files with them, first one they seem to have lost the bpo, kept telling me a new one was ordered and now today they tell me file was closed out due to no access. This is crazy, I have keys to the house, they kept telling me for the past month that just wait someone will contact me to get access. Now they reopened my file and ordered a new bpo, lets see what happens now. The other file the 30 day review clock was reset because they are saying the mls sheet was cut off on scan, which is weird because it was emailed and I saw it clearly but now 30 days becomes 60 days. Very frustrating to deal with them. Asked if file can be escalated to a management was told there is no reason for it. Feel like I'm in the twilight zone with these people.

Tony, I've done exactly that numerous times and have never won that battle. Any tips? SPS even asked me to do an addendum to the listing noting a max of 6% commission.

Comment by Tony Morales on May 9, 2017 at 11:39am

In my previous employment in a short sale department  we would consider those low value properties and approve a flat fee instead of a commission.  Usually around $3,500.00. In the future, if you have a similar short sale, demand a flat fee instead of a commission. have the seller complete what ever listing form you have in your state to agree to a flat fee and submit that with your offer

Comment by Kimberly S. Ruley on May 9, 2017 at 11:27am

Ok thanks all! I will wait for the underwriter's response and then move on. It's just such a low dollar sale (under $40,000) that I don't like to sell myself short

Comment by Tony Morales on May 9, 2017 at 11:25am

So is it similar to a Transaction coordinator or office administration fee? which here in Calif ranges from $300-450. if so then it may apply on standard sales but not on short sale  be thankful that the other short sales you did not not have you remove it
