Northeast OH Short Sales: Does Fannie Mae Pursue Deficiencies?

Northeast OH – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Steve. Here is his question.

“We are doing a short sale with one of the largest nationwide banks. I told them I wouldn’t do the short sale unless they specifically changed their short sale approval letter to completely release me from the deficiency.

The short sale negotiate told me that Fannie Mae would not allow them to release the deficiency. I read somewhere that Fannie Mae doesn’t pursue a homeowner after a short sale. I don’t know who to believe. What do you think? Steve.”

Here is the answer to Steve’s Question. Steve, in my opinion, you are being lied to by the people at the bank.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac do not pursue deficiencies unless the property is a short sale, or they determine that the owners are strategically defaulting. They just write off the loss and move on.

I don’t know how they determine if you are “strategically defaulting.” Unless you are one of those two, then the people at the bank are not telling you the truth.

In fact, we recently sold a Fannie Mae short sale and the short sale approval letter gave the seller a complete release.

In another situation, there is a large nationwide lender that has short sale approval letter that do not offer anyone a release.

This lender has written their approval letters so that is leaves the collection rights with the loan owner after the short sale. The way the loan owner can pursue if they decide to do so.

This lender is infamous for not changing the clause of their approval letter. We had a short sale with them. The loan was a Freddie Mac Loan.

We were able to convince them to change the approval letter because we all knew the investor wouldn’t pursue the home seller for a deficiency. So, go back and tell the lender about your newfound knowledge.

If they still won’t budge, then threaten to contact Fannie Mae direct. Thinking about a short sale?
