The Coldwell Banker agent who is taking care of the short sale was the one who told me about the bank having control over the property. To my knowledge the sale has not officially gone through yet. This is what was forwarded to me via email:
"This is the brand new policy of Wells Fargo as of January 2010: to close expeditiously within 30 days of submitting an offer.
Thereâ€™s nothing I can do - itâ€™s beyond my control. Itâ€™s all in the hands of the bank: Wells Fargo.
If we donâ€™t close on time, then the property will go to the bank and youâ€™ll have to leave anyway.
If thereâ€™s any way I can help you find an alternative apartment, please let me know.
Your best bet will be West Side Rentals or the L.A. times on line.
Please see this email as an official 30 day notice to vacate the property above."
I spoke with my land lord yesterday and he offered my roommate and i $400 to move out in addition to our deposit. I am more than willing to move, I just feel as if 30days is way to short of notice being that i have to find a new condo, and save for move in costs.
I have been told by numerous people that there is a chance that I could negotiate relocation fees... I have yet to hear back from the attorney, but was wondering if anyone has heard of this?
