Bergen County Short Sales: How To Negotiate Away Promissory Notes

Bergen County NJ – If your loan has Private Mortgage Insurance, also known as PMI, then there is a high likelihood that they will request that you sign a promissory note.

Today’s blog post talks about how to convince the lender to waive it.

PMI companies are notorious for asking for promissory notes. The reason they ask for them so much is because there is no risk in doing so.

If the home is foreclosed upon, then they will have to pay a claim for the loss. If the home is sold as a short sale, then they will have to pay a claim for the loss. Either way, they have the same result.

But, if they get a promissory note, then they get some money to help cover the claim. Either way, there is no risk to them.

All that you have to do to avoid the PMI promissory note is show the PMI negotiator that the seller has no assets and does not have the ability to pay a promissory note.

You want to speak directly with the PMI negotiator. If you must, then escalate the file to a supervisor.

When they see the seller has no assets, they will still push for a promissory note. You have to hold firm and sometimes even threaten to go to the press.

If you have made a good case and talked to the right people, then they will usually waive the promissory note. Thinking about a short sale?

Robert Clarke, RE/MAX Properties Plus, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not associated or affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed, endorsed, or approved by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

If you stop paying your mortgage, then you could lose your home and damage your credit. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
