It could be extremely important that the husband have his own credit history, separate from his wife. Meaning, he can not be able to count with the wife's income to qualify for a mortgage loan on the house that they are planning to buy. These will work only if the husband is not a co-signer on the mortgage of the property that is in short sale. If this is the case, another solution will be making all the mortgage payments to the bank that holds your mortgage now, get a short sale reported as "paid in full" and get the new mortgage loan under both names.

Best of Luck,

Hi Inna,
As long as the husband was not on the mortgage to the other property, the short sale aspect should not be an issue. She just could not be on the new mortgage if she had late payments prior to the completion of the short sale.
