It could happen quickly if the second bank says "yes" then it will go pretty quickly. Also, the home may no longer be available for a short sale if the bank files a foreclosure on the property.

When they file the foreclosure, the attorneys take over, and they proceed until the bank is declared the owner. Then the bank will once again offer the home for sale. If you have been told you have a deadline of Sept 29th, they probably mean what they say. This is all such uncharted territory that we cannot be sure, but that deadline should not be simply ignored.
