How did it go? More than 120 days since you posted your question.
The SS approval letter takes weeks, months after an offer is submitted and seller's agent pushes and pushes the lender to make a decision and, the closer to list price, the shorter the time to approval.
You may mean the owner's letter indicating the lender will entertain a short sale, based on a completed application and owner's hardship. All that lender scrutiny and investigation is not begun until a qualified offer is made. They would then order an appraisal to see how much they will loose, if any. You hope the agent knew what they were doing when they priced the house, close to its value so the lender will not delay an approval. Many offers are far below the value that the lender either does not respond or counters with a reasonable offer based on their appraisal. Tell us what happened.

Dear Mehran,
Actually, you can be near the airport without the plane noise as long as the planes are not traveling directly over your home. Playa Vista has little to no plane noise and is very near LAX while other areas such as Playa del Rey do have some plane noise. The airport has installed dual pane windows and other soundproofing to homes in the area so protect the home owners from excessive noise.
I advise you do spend time in the area you are considering (at least 4 hours) to see for yourself how the noise level is, before purchasing.

There are many statements that can be made about this topic, Arty, but you need an answer. You asked a question and the answer is YES, YES, and YES. No amount of paperwork or insurance policies are going to keep golf balls off a property adjacent to a fairway. If you want to protect yourself further, you can put up a safety net, retrofit with plexi shields for the windows, and grow cypress trees in the direction of the tee box. I should know, I'm both a golfer and a Porter Ranch Real Estate Broker. If you need more information about Porter Ranch Country Club Homes, you can reach me at (818) 528-4410. Have a great 4th of July weekend. ... more
