@Larry Davis - You would want to go to the property management company for the HOA and find out how to order the whole set of HOA documents for your clients.  In San Francisco North Bay (Marin and Sonoma county), it is customary for sellers to provide the whole set of HOA doc, including the HOA certs.

If you have properties in Marin/Sonoma, I'd be  happy to help.

Escrow orders an HOA Cert - sometimes, depending on the HOA and Management Company that can be done on-line (by escrow) and they get it electronically.  Another way is to look at closed sales and call the Buyer's agent and ask them what their experience was.....

V Turner -

Write a letter to the Lender / Fannie Mae explaining that you cannot pay the promissory note AND explain why (loss of income, medical issues, etc.)  Give it to yoru Listing Agent to send to the negotiator.  They will retract the request and you will close soon.


Best of luck,

Please help,  I am the seller in a short sale and Fannie Mae is asking us to sign a promissory note of $10,000 on a 100% purchase loan on which we paid PMI.    I cannot afford to make payments on this. The house appraised at around $170,000 and that is what is offered by the short sale buyer.  Is this common and how do I get them to agree to the short sale without coming after me and how do I find out what language needs to be in the agreement to release me of liability.    Thanks

Anna, try spamming all the people in your drop down menu when emailing in equator with your complaint and some one will get back to you. Also if you have had a good transaction you can ask her to take over all your new files. I Currently only work with two that are Great.
