Yes, if the title changed they can deny a short sale. The reason is since the title has hanged, its not the propeerty they loaned money on and had title insured. Once the title changes the lenders title policy is no longer in effect.. In fact, there are case where the title changed inproperly or without the leinholders approval the loan was called due and payable in full.

Chase is very reasonabe to work with. You just have to know what you are doing

Short sales happen prior to the bank going through all the expense of a foreclosure. This is the reason the price can be lower than a foreclosure. Also, the effects on your credit are not as severe as a foreclosure. ... more

Lisa McKnight answered:
When you sign a contract you are obligated to close on the sale of your home. In this case, if the bank has not yet accepted the contract, you may have a chance to contact them and catch up on the mortgage. If the bank has already accepted the contract, you are obligated to close and can use the inheritance for a downpayment on renting a home until you get back on your feet. If you would still like to try to back out of the sale, contact a lawyer to see what your obtions are. ... more

Dale Weir answered:
ditto, that information is in the multilist, however, even there a special report has to be run to get the information. It doesn't tell you who is the most aggressive and/or successful, it only shows you who happens to be in the right place at the right time to get the listing or the sale. Sometimes the agent who has been in an area for a long time gets the listings simply because they are the known quantity, not because they do a good job. A new agent may come into the area with new ideas, enthusiasm and energy that really actively markets homes and helps buyers to find the right home rather than just "a home" but it takes awhile for them to get established, they may be a better agent, but the stats arent' there yet to show it ... more
