Navigating Short Sales in Florida With Legal Expertise

Is your home under threat of foreclosure? Do you have mountains of debt, or have you lost your source of income due to job loss, divorce, and other factors out of your control?

Opting for a short sale of your home can help relieve you of the burden. The loan lender or owner to whom you pay for the property can expect to receive most of the sale proceeds, and you have a chance to release yourself from financial responsibility.

What Is a Short Sale?

A short sale means you are upside down on payments—you owe more than what you can currently pay off. The greatest advantage of a short sale is that you can avoid foreclosure and prevent a negative mark from showing on your credit report.

The key to having a successful short sale is to retain a knowledgeable Longwood real estate lawyer to handle your case for you.

Can You Stop a Short Sale?

If you are interested in stopping a short sale contract, there may indeed be ways that this can happen, including:
  • The seller decides to cancel the listing, which is agreed upon by the selling agent
  • The seller receives a higher offer, which they decide to take instead of their current agreement
  • A foreclosure takes place, replacing the short sale

What is the Short Sale Process in Florida? 

You will agree with your lender that the property will be sold at a cost currently less than what you owe on your mortgage.

For obvious reasons, some lenders may have difficulty seeing eye-to-eye on negotiations, but ultimately, foreclosure is riskier to both you and the lenders. You can find comfort in knowing that many lenders will work with you.

Here is a general outline of how the process takes place:

  • The property is evaluated and valued.
  • The short sale application and paperwork are filed.
  • The homeowner shows how he or she is having hardship.
  • The short sale package is then created.
  • The lender reviews the package.
  • The short sale receives approval.

Now, the short sale process is not the same for every home and will depend greatly on how the lender decides to handle the situation. The strength of your application will lie in how compelling the reasons behind your hardship are, the overall value, and whether you have found a potential buyer to take over the property.

Don’t forget, as well, there are additional:

  • Expenses
  • Taxes
  • Notary fees
  • And other closing costs

You must consult a Longwood foreclosure defense attorney to help minimize any added or unnecessary expenses.
