Comment by Jenny L yesterday

I will go ahead and submit the listing agreement anyway and see what they say.  The other party is already aware of the judgements and possible tax if it goes to foreclosure.  Thank you very much for your information.  Its an FHA loan out of the state of IL...I was really hoping that it wasn't going to be this difficult.

This is also not a divorce case...It is my husband and my mother who are on the loan together.

In California, you don't need both signatures on the listing agreement to take a listing. I've closed a bunch of short sales where I've started out with only one party. Some of them I've closed with just that one party, too. You might consider removing one party's name from the listing and submitting it that way. If they look at the public records and ask about party 2, you might suggest party 2 will sign an interspousal deed at closing.

These are harder to do, no doubt about it. But banks do make exceptions. If one negotiator won't cooperate and is "going by the book," let the file cancel and get a different negotiator. People are idiots.

Also, I've had a lot of luck gaining cooperation from parties who did not want to cooperate by explaining what happens with, in most instances, a hard money loan. How the hard-money lender will have the right through a judgment to garnish wages and attach their bank accounts, and that the foreclosure will stay on their credit report for 10 years.

Well, I spoke with WF today and they confirmed that unless the co-borrower signs there is really nothing that I can do.  I do not have a negotiator to speak with because the listing agreement has not been signed therefore I have no buyer at this point to submit package to the bank. 

Would anyone suggest that I submit in writing to the bank anyway and see what they say?  Which department??  This is so messed up!! 

And to top it off the co-borrower has threatened to sue me because I will not agree to use her attorney.  So she will not sign the listing agreement because I do not want to utilize her attorney, which means the house will most likely be foreclosed on then...how is that my fault and what in the world does she think she can sue me for?

@Jenny, I have successfully completed several short sales where there was a non resident person on loan and/or title.  We wrote letters of explanation as to why they had abdicated their interest in the property.  We did not use their financials nor did we have them on the contracts.  They did however have to sign off of the Grant Deed and any short sale documentation provided by the Bank. Make your case to your short sale negotiator and ask what they would need to make this happen. If you don't ask you will never know!

I've only had ONE out of hundreds of short sales I've completed where one person would not participate.  The wife was so angry she filed BK, divorced him and moved out of state which forced the husband to file BK.  The guy threatened the bank (in writing) that he would burn the house down before he would leave unless they paid him $50,000.  I dropped the listing and finally 5 years down the road the lender foreclosed.  Even the Sheriff knew about him and wouldn't intervene.  BTW, this was a $1+ Million home.  It was so not worth it.

Comment by Jenny L on Monday

I figured as much...just wanted to ask.  Spoke to Home Preservation Specialist who stated that pretty much we are screwed if she doesn't sign it. 

Thank you to all who responded.  Much appreciated!

Comment by Deb Clark-Wyles on Monday

I have had success with other banks saying that the co-borrower refuses to participate and that the borrower and co-borrower are not speaking and the co-borrower is refusing to pay anything toward the loan and has basically walked away from their partnership.  I have had that work a couple of times. I make it a big part of the hardship letter. A quit claim does you no good, since that doesn't remove them from the loan.

Comment by Thom Colby CA Brkr 888-391-5245 on Monday

The co-borrower is equally 100% responsible for repayment of the loan as well as responsible to participate in the short sale process.  If they do not participate, there likely will be no short sale.

Comment by Brett Goldsmith on Monday

It's highly likely they will want the co-borrowers financials and that they would need to sign the approval letter too or any affidavits. They shouldn't need to sign the listing if they aren't on title right? It's possible the mortgage servicer wants them added back to title though too, I've seen this at times.

Comment by Melody Medley on Monday

I send a letter of explanation as to why you are removing the co borrower along with the quick claim deed. It helps if the co borrower is not living in the property and is not contributing in anyway. I include this information in my letter of explanation as well.
