Hollister Short Sales: Will Bank Of America Approve Short Sales with No Deficiency?

Hollister CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received this question from another agent. Here is his question.

"Have you had any luck getting short sales done with no deficiency with Bank of America? My seller is a young couple. They received a job transfer but are very upside-down on the house.~David"

A Quick Note: The reason he's asking this question is because Bank of America uses the same short sale approval letter for all its short sales. A clause in the letter states that BOA and/or its investors may pursue the seller for a deficiency judgment. It's a standard, boiler plate letter put together by the lender's attorneys.

Most short sale negotiators refuse to remove that language. BOA's legal department puts it there because it protects the lender against lawsuits.

But if you're a seller, you want to know for sure that you won't be chased down for a deficiency. If BOA won't remove that language, you can't know for sure whether or not you will be pursued for a deficiency.

Here is our answer to David's question. We have convinced Bank of America to remove the deficiency language on a short sale. It's just a matter of requesting it and the owner of the loan being willing to remove it. (Bank of America doesn't always own the loan itself.) Ask for an approval letter that states BOA is waiving all future collection rights.

Also, remind the sellers they also have a risk of being collected from in the future, after the bank forecloses.

Important Notice

Israel Gonzalez, Beale Properties, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.

The views expressed here are Gonzalez's personal views and do not reflect the views of Beale Properties.
