New Fannie Mae Short Sale rules

FANNIE MAE SHORT SALE GUIDE LINE

OVERVIEW
The Federal Housing Finance Agency has directed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to align existing short sales programs into one standard short sale program and issue clear
guidelines to mortgage servicers. With these changes, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will allow homeowners with eligible hardships to sell their home in a short sale even if they are current on their loans. FHFA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are making these changes to help more homeowners avoid foreclosure, keep homes occupied and help maintain stable communities. The streamlined program rules will enable lenders and servicers to quickly and easily qualify eligible borrowers for a short sale.The programs being aligned are: Fannie Mae’s Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative (HAFA) and proprietary short sale programs, and Freddie Mac’s HAFA and proprietary short sale programs. The current Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac HAFA programs are modeled on the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative program, but with
this guidance, there will be one program offered by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – the Standard Short Sale/HAFA II.

EFFECTIVE DATE
Guidance will be issued by Freddie Mac August 21 and by Fannie Mae August 22 and will be effective by November 1.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

• The existing mortgage must be owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
• The person must have a demonstrated hardship which includes:
• Death of a borrower or death of the primary or secondary wage earner in the household
• Unemployment
• Divorce
• Long-term disability
• Distant employment transfer/relocation (more than 50 miles one way)
• Increased housing expenses
• Disaster (natural or man-made)
• Business failure

FHFA ANNOUNCES NEW SHORT SALE GUIDELINES:
PROGRAMS ALIGNED TO EXPEDITE ASSISTANCE TO BORROWERS
HIGHLIGHTS – THE NEW GUIDELINES:

• Offer a streamlined short sale approach for borrowers
most in need.

• Enable servicers to quickly and easily qualify certain
borrowers who are current on their mortgages for
short sales.

• Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will waive the right to pursue de?ciency judgments in exchange for a ?nancial contribution when a borrower has suf?cient income or assets to make cash contributions or sign promissory notes.

• Offer special treatment for military personnel with Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders.

• Consolidate existing short sales programs into a single uniform program.

• Provide servicers and borrowers clarity on processing a short sale when a foreclosure sale is pending.

• Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will offer up to $6,000 to second lien holders to expedite a short sale.

• Borrowers that need to relocate more than 50 miles one way for a job, including service members with Permanent Change of Station Orders, can be current or delinquent on their mortgage to apply for a short sale.

• Borrowers who have the capacity to contribute to shortages will be asked to make a reasonable contribution toward the shortfall. However, service members with Permanent Change of Station Orders will not be asked for a contribution towards the shortage for properties purchased on or before June 30, 2012.

• Borrowers will not be eligible for a new mortgage backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac for at least two years after a short sale.

$77,000 debt settled for only $3000

Had insurance claim from March 2010. Constantly receiving letters from Insurance company. I was really scared that they will file a law suit against me. Brought my case to Shah Peerally Attorney at law in March 2012, amazed by the services provided by the company and their team. They were very supportive and helpful. My case was resolved within 2 weeks. I had a claim of $77,000 but only paid $3000.Thanks to Shah Peerally and his team. God Bless you.

Second Mortgage Testimonial

Thank you very much for getting our second loan settled with the bank! My family and I are extremely pleased and grateful with the outcome since the settlement amount is considerably low given our house’s current market value and the outstanding loan balance. I find no words to express my gratitude to you at this moment. All I can say is “Thank you!” a thousand times from the bottom of my heart. I never thought we would get this settlement done and was very doubtful at the beginning but you made it happen. It was truly a miracle. But I know that without your expertise, diligence, and the right strategy, this would have never become a miracle to us. And our house would have probably been in foreclosure proceedings now. Thank you for saving me and my family from the street and I will definitely refer friends, relatives and colleagues to you if I know they are also struggling with a second loan debt.
God bless you, your family and your business!

Elimination of 2nd Mortgage

It is always difficult to obtain a settlement on second mortgages with equity on the property because the finance companies know that if they foreclose they will be able to recover most of the money. As such they are always reluctant to offer settlement offers. Despite this hurdle, our law firm has successfully secured several second mortgage settlements with properties with substantial equities on them. Here are few of our recent success stories:

Three great settlements on properties 2 of which with equity:

1. $122,000 settled on a second mortgage for only $40,000 payable over three months with no finance charges. Note that the property had 100% equity attached to both loans. Client immediately created an equity of $200,000 on her property and is now eligible for a refinancing at a lower rate of interest on her first loan.

2. $92,000 settled on the second loan for only $30,000. Note that the property had a total $57,000 before considering the second mortgage. After settlement, now the client a full equity of $57,000 free from the burden of a second loan.

3. $200,000 settled for $41,000 although client’s was making a six figures income.

Los Angeles Times reported in an opinion that the real National Security threat is the American Debt.

“The real national security threat: America’s debt

Our growing national debt is a threat not only to domestic programs but to a U.S. tradition of an activist foreign policy that helped America prosper.”

…The United States has been running trillion-dollar deficits, resulting in a huge explosion in the country’s indebtedness. Publicly held debt now equals 70% of gross domestic product, a threshold many economists consider significant and highly worrisome. Making matters worse, half of our current deficit financing is being provided by foreigners. We are getting by with low interest rates and tolerable levels of domestic investment only because they find U.S. debt attractive, which may not last…

Important Preemption Decision in favor of national banks Parks v. MBNA

On June 21, 2012, the California Supreme Court issued an important federal preemption decision in favor of national banks, Parks v. MBNA America Bank, N.A., S183703. The issue before the California Supreme Court was whether the National Bank Act of 1864 (13 Stat. 99) (“NBA”) preempts Civil Code section 1748.9, a California law requiring that certain disclosures accompany preprinted checks that a credit card issuer provides to its cardholders for use as credit. Finding that the NBA contains no such requirement with respect to the issuance of so-called “convenience checks” to credit customers but, rather, broadly grants to national banks “all such incidental power as shall be necessary to carry on the business of banking . . . by [among other powers] loaning money on personal security.” (12 U.S.C. § 24, par. Seventh.), the California Supreme Court concluded that the NBA preempts Civil Code section 1748.9 because the state law stands as an obstacle to the broad grant of power given by the NBA to national banks to conduct the business of banking. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal’s judgment was reversed and the case remanded to that court for further proceedings consistent with the Supreme Court’s opinion.

disclosures accompany preprinted checks that a credit card issuer provides to its

to national banks “all such incidental power as shall be necessary to carry on the business
of banking . . . by [among other powers] loaning money on personal security.”
(12 U.S.C. § 24, par. Seventh.) We conclude that the NBA preempts Civil Code section
1748.9 because the state law stands as an obstacle to the broad grant of power given by
the NBA to national banks to conduct the business of banking. Accordingly, we reverse
the Court of Appeal?s judgment and remand the matter to that court for further
