They accused a large, national lender (one of the 4 largest in America) of lying to Fannie Mae. Fannie Mae is almost a subsidiary of the Federal Government.
Here was the e-mail they sent us. ” The lender told the seller that they had to agree to a deficiency or the short sale would not be approved.
The seller said that was unacceptable. They told us they wouldn’t go thru with the short sale unless the deficiency was waived. We notified the short sale negotiator and he sent us a short sale decline letter.
The decline letter says buyer walked. That was a total lie! It appears that this lender told the owner of the loan, Fannie Mae, that the buyer walked when that was not the case.
But, he told us that Fannie Mae was making them do it. I think they are showing this to Fannie Mae to cover their butts! Steve.”
Our comments on this. This is a big deal. That lender’s legal obligation is to do what is best for Fannie Mae. Short sales usually reduce a lender’s losses by 20%, thereby netting Fannie Mae more money.
For this lender to do this is a blatant violation of their legal obligation. Fannie Mae’s policy is to not pursue short sale deficiencies. They just write off the loss and move on. We have sold many short sales where Fannie Mae waived their deficiency rights.
I think the short sale negotiator’s ego is getting in the way of a deal. They are probably delegated for Fannie. This means Fannie tells them to do whatever they want on behalf of Fannie.
The person not willing to waive the deficiency is this short sale negotiator. This is pathetic and should be investigated.
There is a solution to the problem. I would recommend calling Fannie Mae directly and let them know what is going on.

Our services have not been reviewed, endorsed, or approved by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
If you stop paying your mortgage, then you could lose your home and damage your credit. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
