Foreclosure Defense FloridaShort Sale

SHORT SALES, FLORIDA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS AND SELLER/REALTOR SHORT SALE LIABILITY

Fl-realtorsRealtors across the state are exposed to massive liability every time they have consummate a short sale transaction because the previous version Short Sale Addendum form prepared by the Florida Association of Realtors completely ignores the liability faced by homeowners for a deficiency judgment.

I first altered the Realtors I work with and the Florida Association of Realtors to this problem shortly after I started seeing the prior addendum over a year ago, and it appears that they have finally accepted this message.   The attached Short Sale Addendum, revised in June 2010 includes the exactly language that I have been directing my Realtor clients to use.   For every Realtor and seller under contract, this addendum should be replace the prior contract that is part of the transaction

Short sales still present massive liability for all parties and it is absolutely critical that sellers and all agents involved in these transactions obtain the advice of an experienced foreclosure defense attorney.   Review my blog and contact me directly for more information about this important issue.
