Will My Lender Sue Me After A Northeast OH Short Sale?

Northeast OH – Many people are concerned about a potential lawsuit after a short sale.

Many people ask us, “My lender just lost $150,000. Aren’t thing going to be angry that they are losing that much money? Won’t they sue me?”

The good news is that very few people will get sued. The vast majority of all short sale sellers will be released from the debt as a condition of the short sale.

We have reviewed hundreds of short sale approval letters and are familiar with the laws in different states. We estimate that 85-90% of all short sales will be approved with the deficiency being waived.

But, what about the remaining people? There are several reasons they are unlikely to be sued. Remember, in most cases they can’t collect any money without getting a judgment first.

Reason #1: It costs $1,000 or more to file a lawsuit in most states. Between the attorney fees and court costs, it will cost a lender $1,000 to $5,000 to convert the debt into a judgment. The $5,000 number is for people who fight them in court.

Reason #2: You can’t squeeze blood from a stone. Most people short sell their house because of financial problems. The banks know this.

They have learned from past experience how hard it is to collect money from someone who is having financial difficulties.

This is why the vast majority of all short sale sellers will never be sued by their lender after a short sale. Thinking about a short sale?
