Bergen County Short Sales: How To Convince A Lender To Waive A Promissory Note

Bergen County NJ – Some lenders are very stubborn about collecting what they feel they are “rightfully owed.”

These lenders are usually a lender that you originally got the loan from. A good example is a credit union loan, or a small community bank.

Another common type is loans that were granted with Private Mortgage Insurance. In our experience, these companies are very demanding.

They negotiate hard and say they will not approve a short sale without a promissory. However, that is not always the case.

You can often convince them to waive the deficiency if you do the following.

1. Prove to them that you don’t have any assets or any extra monthly income.

2. Prove that your home is worth what the buyer is offering on the short sale. This is your agent’s job to do. Your agent will put together an agent’s version of an appraisal.

This will include comparable sales and what your property is worth, based on those comparable sales. Your agent will show them that they are better off accepting the short sale.

If you have presented your case well and the lender buys it, then they will usually waive the deficiency or promissory note and accept what they can get. After all, something is better than nothing. Make sense?

Another option is to hire a good lawyer to negotiate for you. Look for a lawyer with experience in bankruptcy.

They can use the threat of bankruptcy to convince the lender to approve the short sale with the deficiency waived. Bankruptcy is very bad for creditors.

If you declare bankruptcy, then it could take 12-18 months before the lender can sell the house. Their right to collect from you would be wiped out in bankruptcy.

A short sale where they get their money today is a much better option. That’s why they’ll usually take that option when threatened with bankruptcy. Thinking about a short sale?
