The Law Offices of ALG and Associates - Short sales

Why Short-Sale Instead of Foreclosure? 
  The Government Shortsale Program (HAFA – Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative Program) is great for homeowners who are struggling with their mortgage payments due to a financial hardship, and who have attempted a Loan Modification and either have been unsuccessful or are unable to afford the modified payments.

  Some of the benefits of HAFA are:
  • The homeowner receives $3,000 from the Government!
  • Released from loan responsibility and not required to pay back lenders financial loss on property – no tax responsibility. (First liens only under SB-931)
  • The borrower may still be eligible, under Fannie Mae guidelines, to buy another home in 2 years instead of 5 to 7 years!
  • The homeowner can avoid the social stigma of Foreclosure and severely damaged credit for each borrower!
  • The borrower can meet the new homeowners!
  • The bank(s) get paid by the Government to Short Sale the home, motivating them to settle! (The 1st pays the 2nd)

ALG and Associates Tip:
Did you know that as of April 5, 2010 if the loan servicer had signed onto the HAMP program, that servicer is mandated to implement the HAFA Program?Participating servicers are required to consider all eligible Borrowers for HAFA before the Borrower’s loan is referred to foreclosure!Servicers and investors of both first and second liens are required to fully release the Borrowers from future liability for the debt under HAFA. An important component of the HAFA program is that future liability for the first and second liens must be released allowing a fresh start – in other words, no deficiency.How Can ALG and Associates Help Me?
