Northeast OH Short Sales: There Is A Surprise Lien On The Short Sale

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

“Do you have any suggestions on a surprise lien from a Water Softener company? We were able to get Bank of America to approve the short sale without paying the lien. It could take another 60 days for Bank of America to agree to pay the lien.

The buyers don’t want to wait that long. Is there anything we can do? James.”

Here is the answer to James’s Question.

Yes, you can get rid of it. But, it will take time.

Option #1: Many states have laws that allow a homeowner to remove liens if the property is their homestead.

For example, Florida has a law that enables the seller to file to release the lien thru homestead. I don’t remember the exact legal name.

The seller files something and the lien automatically goes away in 45 days. The only reason it wouldn’t go away is if the lien holder contests it.

An agent I know in Florida has used it against one of the best debt collection lawyers in the state. Ask your title company for help.

Option #2: Get BOA to agree to give them some money for it. Or, find a way to get it paid on the HUD. As you can see, both of these take time.

Option #3: Pay it out of pocket.

Option #4: You luck out and the lien doesn’t attach. Check with your title company to see if this is the case. Oftentimes, they don’t even legally attach. Thinking about a short sale?
