Arisha - Did you call WF to discuss the terms of the Affidavit that you'd like to modify?

Comment by Brett Goldsmith on Thursday

@Arisha - If the servicer is requesting it then it's needed.

Comment by Arisha Griffith on Thursday

Does anyone have any experience either a.) successfully redacting the Short Sale Affadavit, or b) closing a transaction without the Short Sale affadavit? The property is in Maryland, if that helps.

Melanie, Wells Fargo Financial does NOT require an Affidavit. Is it possible you are dealing with a WF Home Mortgage? IF so, use the attached WF Conventional Affidavit v3.0.. Chad.

Does anyone have a Short Sale Affidavit for Wells Fargo Home Equity? They're requiring one, but can't tell me where to get it (other than Google).

Wells Fargo FHA SS denies seller paid concession for VA buyer, WHY?

Comment by Terry Hammill on November 8, 2017 at 3:34pm

Just a heads up for everyone..... Wells Fargo is attempting to comply with the new CFPB guidelines but in the process has decided to destroy files on several of our short sales (they deleted all of the documents).  Be prepared that if you submit and they run the file through a loan mod and your client is denied that they will then delete all of the documents that you have submitted and send the file to the short sale department where you will have to start over.  This has happened on two of our files this week.

Thanks. We have everything set up with our lender and are r had an offer on the house for a regular transaction at the beginning of summer and were set to close mid July. Seller was 20,000 short at close. Sellers realtor failed to get a payoff until a week from close. House was set to go to Sheriff’s Sale the day before we put our offer in. Wells pulled from sale and so we began our short. Our lender has been great. Unfortunately we have had to pay to extend appraisal and already have inspection done. So we are hoping this goes through soon, or we are out over 1,000.

Unfortunately, you cannot talk to Wells Fargo and your agent cannot either. You're at the mercy of the listing agent. I agree that the listing agent should escalate the file. Any number of things could have happened, including the negotiator could have been terminated, gone on vacation, quit. The hard thing is usually getting the approval from Fannie Mae. Since Fannie Mae is the investor, Fannie Mae could put pressure on WF to respond. There is no reason why you can't start your loan process, which is what I would tell my own buyer's agents to advise. Some lenders will say they can't do anything without that darned letter, but they're just blowing smoke.

We are currently in the process of trying to purchase a home.  We had a short sale offer on a Wells Fargo home.  We started process in mid July.  A couple of weeks ago Wells said they were passing on info to Fannie Mae.  We received an approval from Fannie Mae, but they said they still needed approval from Wells.  Fannie Mae said we would have an answer within 5 business days.  It has been about 10 business days.  I am wondering if anyone can offer suggestions on how to get an answer from Wells.  We have a realtor and the seller's realtor has not been very cooperative.  Seller's realtor claims she has faxed, emailed, and called and no response from Wells.  Our realtor is suggesting escalation, but we have yet to hear anything from anyone.  As buyer's is there anything we or our realtor can do?  I don't believe the seller's realtor has much experience in dealing in short sales and we want the home but need to close on a home by years end.  I don't understand what the hold up is.
