Can I legally sell a home that I have a forbearance contract with?

Asked by Faye Garcia, 94560 Fri May 17, 2013

I own a home in California and am currently on a forbearance agreement. I am paying an extra $1000 every month and will be current in August. We've decided to sell our property and wondered if I will come across issues with being on a forbearance. Agreement. I expect to make money since the balance of my loan is less than our anticipated sell price. Any help would be appreciated.

Paying off all debt owed on the home, should extract you from this situation.

I believe I answered this questions in your first question you posted.

Secure the services a Real Estate attorney. As long as you own your home you should be able to put it up for sale. You want to do it with the help of a local attorney who would also represent you at time of close. First, talk to an attorney and secure his/her services. Second, find a good broker.
