Would suggest contacting a local attorney that handles foreclosure issues to look over all of your paperwork and give you an appropriate answer to your question. We agents cannot give legal advice for obvious reasons. Good luck, I hope things work out for you. ... more

You're still responsible for the past due HOA dues even after foreclosure. However, you want to call the HOA company and confirm.

Buyer can make an offer what buyer think reasonable. In case of short sale it is the Bank who makes the decision. Because bank is losing money in this transaction.So you can make an offer but bank can say yes or no.Than you go up.Good luck. ... more

You need to talk to an Attorney. There are a lot of factors on loans that may or may not make the holder liable for the difference. It is much too complex an issue to discuss in this forum. You need a good Real Estate Attorney to review everything and advise you. ... more

You would have to refer to the contract you signed with the owner of the property to see what you have the rights to. Also, a real estate attorney would be a great source on this one.

I've almost always (in every case save one) been able to get the lender to forestall or postpone a pending foreclosure sale when I demonstrated that I had the property listed for short sale. The lenders have all required proof of listing such as aopy of the listing agreement and a copy of the MLS listing printout.. And, as others have commented, it certainly helps to have an offer on the table.

In the one instance where I was unsuccessful in getting the sale forestalled, there was actually a very good offer on the table -- but it was just too late in the lender's process wen the he sellers contacted me to market the property. Even with an excellent offer in hand, the foreclosure could not be postponed.

But that is one instance out of dozens. Time is always of the essence! Never wait too late to get help.

Check with your lender right away to see if it is possible to postpone the sale while you continue to market the property. And be sure to check with the foreclosure department, to make sure that they got the memo. Often in large organizations, the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing.Make sure everyone is on the same page.

Well if you want a foreclosure and deficiency judgment hanging over your head then let it go but these events are life changing and make life very difficult.

Ramifications of Foreclosure, Short Sale or Deed-in-lieu-of-foreclosure

Here are some of the ramifications of foreclosure, short sale or deed-in-lieu-of-foreclosure, there are many more like your job, yes employers are checking credit records these days.

Your credit score will be reduced by 200-400 points, short sale a little less 100-200 points.

All forms of foreclosure stay on your credit report for 10 years.

After you have gone through foreclosure, short sale or deed-in-lieu-of-foreclosure there will be what is known as the "waiting period", this period of time varies for each and can be reduced if you had some type of extenuating circumstances that caused the foreclosure:
Waiting Periods to Buy After Foreclosure
* Buying After a Foreclosure
The waiting period is 5 years up to 7 years.
* Buying After a Foreclosure with Extenuating Circumstances
The waiting period is 3 years up to 7 years.
* Buying After a Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure
The waiting period is 4 years up to 7 years.
* Buying After a Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure with Extenuating Circumstances
The waiting period is 2 years up to 7 years.
* Buying After a Short Sale
The waiting period was just upped from 2 to 3 years. However, if a seller does not have a 60-day late pay, that seller may immediately buy another home. It's a reason to stay current on your payments while the home is on the market as a short sale.
In addition to the waiting period, most loans require a minimum down payment of 10% and a minimum FICO score of 680. The home purchase must also be the principal place of residence, not a rental nor a vacation home.

Lastly, most loan applications will ask the dreaded question "Have you ever been foreclosed on?" this stays with you for life, many think that because it will not show up on the credit report after 10 years they can answer "no", well lying on a loan application is a felony that carries a major jail term, so be aware.

Good Luck,
Bob Patrick

Keith Manson- Metro Milwaukee Wisconsin answered:
You need to talk to you bankruptcy attorney to confirm what happened. If in fact you discharged your debt, to complete a work out you would have to re affirm you debt. Both the first and second would have to be reaffirmed unless they were addressed separately in the bankruptcy. However, again, this is very complex and you should have legal counsel review the situation before you do anything!

If you don't want your house tell the bank the chapter ,case number and date filed and dismissed. Then start looking for a new place to live.
