Do You Really Need a Real Estate Attorney for Your Short Sale?
Here is a common situation that occurs way too often: A client comes to our office with a collection letter stating that they owe $100,000 or another large sum of money and they have completely no idea what it could be for since they don’t owe any person that much money. The first question we ask is if they have ever made a short sale on their or investment property or home.
When the most anticipated response is, of course, yes, we further explain to them that the short sale is the reason why they are being sued for such a huge sum of money. Yet after explaining this, they are often confused and are confident saying that the bank or realtor promised them they wouldn’t have any further obligations under the mortgage.
That may be true, but what property owners or investors frequently fail to understand is that they also must be fully released from further financial obligations under the Promissory Note. The result is that these deficiency amounts of the mortgage that the consumer thinks the bank is renouncing for them then gets sold off on the secondary market, often resulting in future debt collections and lawsuits against the unsuspecting property owners who transacted in a short sale.
