Northeast OH Short Sale Myth: The Mortgage Forgiveness Law Means That Everyone Gets To Short Sale With No Deficiency

Northeast OH – I recently heard another so-called short sale expert say that the Federal Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act made it so that everyone gets to short sale with no deficiency

The unfortunate news is that this is not true. In some state, state law forbids the lenders from attempting to collect from the homeowner after a foreclosure or short sale. But, those states are the exception, not the rule.

Here is what the Federal Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act does. It enables a homeowner to walk away from an upside down debt without owing taxes on the loss.

See, in the past a homeowner that was released from an upside down debt would owe income taxes on the forgiven debt. It is called “Forgiveness of Debt Income.”

This short sale expert said the following: “I read the Mortgage Debt Forgiveness Act and it states that anyone who short sells their house will be released from the debt.”

It is sad that someone who considers themselves a short sale expert would be so misinformed. So make sure you check out everything before you start the short sale process.

The good news is that in most cases a homeowner can short sale and walk away from the debt. But, it doesn’t happen every time. Thinking about a short sale?
