(I want the house) and was out done with everything when she informed me of an existing $11K Judgement Lien on the property. Company with the judgement lien won't transfer lien over to sellers new property without 1/3 payment down. Seller don't have the money. This deal appears to be dead and I feel seven months have been wasted waiting on a deal that was going nowhere.
If the seller doesn't still reside in the home you're attempting to purchase, but still lives in the state, you may have to do a little digging, but find them and connect. Chances are great that they want to continue moving forward with the short sale.
If you're the seller, contact the lender directly and track down your short sale negotiator. Make them aware of the situation and get all of their contact info.
Next, get a qualified realtor or short sale attorney to help get the short sale completed.
