Lender Collecting after Foreclosure

I have a client that has contacting me about his home.

He was foreclosed on in 2009. He tells me he has been making payments to Chase Bank since the foreclosure, he can no longer afford them and wants to know what to do? I really do not know where to tell him to go next. At the time, the bank informed him that foreclosure was his best option, gave him $2,000 to get out quickly, and worried about his family he did as they asked..Now he is hearing about friends not paying anything after…

Drive by Fee's

This is not a HAFA short sale, but they have been told they will receive relocation money.

I have a short sale in progress and my seller is being sent drive by fee's from the lender.

every two weeks or so the lender (Seterus)  has someone drive by the home. Then a bill is sent to my seller.

Has anyone encountered this before?  What if anything should my seller do?

Interview the Listing Agent

I recently took a CDPE class, and one of the topic's that stuck in my head was interview the listing agent.

I had the misfortune of taking over a short sale for the buyers agent, only to find out two days after my CDPE  class that the listing agent has little to no experience with Short Sales.  Two days after she hands me an Arms Lenght agreement the property is sold at Auction. Buyers are very disappointed.  She has no clue as to what the procedure in equator was or how to postpone…
