I am not an attorney. I do not play one on TV either.
You MUST consult an attorney on this issue.

I once had a dream about alternative financing that went like this....
Notes, a form of alternative financing, based on the structure and instrument of debt implemented by the note holder, may or may not fall under the requirement so the Dobb / Frank Consumer protection act. If it does, the debtor can wreak havoc with the note holders finances.

In the common use the note can be resold, however the real estate can not change ownership without the participation and involvement of the note holder. Nearly every instrument of debt related to residential real estate contains a 'Due on Sale' clause meaning the debt must be reconciled before ownership can change. Some have attempted to use creative 'wraps' to circumvent this requirement of DOS and to conceal the sale from the lender or note holder.

Another level of significant concern is a clean title can never be conveyed to the new owner. Knowingly entering into such transactions suggests another plan is in play that is not readily apparent to everyone involved.

All debt, liens, encumbrance..must be removed BEFORE new ownership is established. There are exceptions, but those exceptions usually exist on the proverbial courthouse steps.

You really need to hear the advise of your attorney.

Keep in mind, home buying for investors is a business not an emotional transaction. Expect an investor to offer the least amoutn possible so they can make a profit.

One question. Why would anyone pay the huge fees that Remax charges to be a Remax agent and then NOT use their internal referal network? Remax not all it's cracked up to be?

Per your post, They have NOT stated they won't file a deficiency judgment. Unless it says in the approval letter that they won't, you are accepting that they have the ability to come after you. They may not and just send out a 1099, but they may. It must be in writing. ... more

Myrtle Dawkins answered:
This is for Mike. I had another question. Should my Realtor work with the Buyer"s Realtor to benefit the buyer.
house listed 279,900-received offer 269,900 pre-approved-we dropped price. Buyer with Ameridream 3%dwn pmt and 4% closing-okay with that-after pying commission-walk away price near 234,000.okay with that. Asked for HUD Settlement-prolems began then. 2 loans-265,000 and 269,900 ours. We are selling not buying. We are on buyers insurance and she will provide reciept property tax pd by March of each yr. Then something about a buyer will executea purchase money note in form agreeable to Seller.Buyer will authorize Seller to obtain credit, etc We never agreed to any of this. I spoke with title agent-refused to answer questions. Then called my agent said did not know about Ameridream program and to stop caling her-after all she had other clients. mortgage Broker called me at 9pm-said Myrtle you ar BiPolar and we don't expect you to understand something as complicated as a contract. Why don't you just take one of your little pills and let us do our job. After all you have been hospitalized several times for depression. I said yes, I have been in some of the best mental facilities that BellSouth could pay for and not one of them taught me how to be stupid. If I were stupid, I would not be asking questions. I received a very-or I should say my husband-email with a threatened lawsuit from all parties involved-brokers,lender,title agent, both realtors, attorney fees etc.
I thought about that email-I do my best work after 12:00 am. I sent a 6 page email to Sen. Nelson and Martinex, Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite, HUD, FHA, Ameridream-all of above,FBI. a special one for the BUYER-she had already moved in my HOME. Due to close May 30,08.This was May 21.08. I emailed some other folks but can't remember now-remember I am Bi-polar . This was sent at 05-21,08 10:55 am. At 1:30pm 05-21,08, My husband received Buyer cancellation of contract and form for removal from MLS and to remove sign from home. My question to my representatives-should I not tell the truth on the HUD Settlement Statement. Truly I did not understand, or take my chance in State court. I choose the latter. I told my agent to pursue with the lawsuit because I did not think a judge would find me at fault if I did not understand the contract and I could not get any straight answers. A new contract with simple language that I could understand would be needed in order to close. I also included all of her emails-I needed clarification on 4 letters-ASAP. She stated on her emails that she always gave me extra time because of my illness which made the contract difficult for me to understand. I am a 2-yr college student with a 4.0 GPA, member of the PHI Theta Kappa Honor Society and a member of the National Dean's List.. Of couse, it has taken 3years due to my illness-I do have relapes from time to time.I call it my crisis time. My son was in the Navy and was kiled in 2005 on Mother's Day(crisis time) Because he had been to a Night club-his death was considered willful misconduct. I was told tht once the Rear Admiral rended a decision-it was never overturned. I had the right to respond-Military calls it a Reclama. It was overturned. It took me 3 months instead of 1.I successfully adopted my grandson Pro Se. Refused to Pay an attorney. I didn't mean to get into all of this,but it bothers me that the public at large still do not have a clue or understand what Mental ILLiness is. Thanks for being my sounding board today. I attended the DNC last week as a Delegate. I am also a Political Activist. Please don't consider this my resume. Sorry
