Clarksville - Ft. Campbell Area Information: New Short Sale Guidelines With Bank Of America

New Short Sale Guidelines With Bank Of America

So you got to love working Short Sales these days to keep up with all the changes.. Yes.... Bank Of America has announced a NEW Short Sale Process.

What does this mean if your working on a BOA Short Sale ? It's time to regroup and resubmit new documents as it appears that everything is now at a holding point until new documents are reviewed and accepted.

In a recent announcement from BOA, starting in mid July, homeowners will recieve a Initation Package. This package includes a Borrower Election Form that will be required before they will process with a short sale.  No offers or other documents will be reviewed until this form is recieved and verified by the Short Sale Specialist.

One thing to keep in mind as well is the BOA Third Party Authorization Form must also be verified in order to proceed with the transaction as well.

Homeowners entering into a Short Sale should thotoughly read the package and ensure all documents are included in the Initation Package:

  1.      Homeowner Checklist
  2.      Information on Loan Assistance Programs
  3.      Frequently Asked Questions
  4.      Important Notice to Help You Avoid Foreclosure Scams
  5.      Borrower Election Form – now required upon initiation
  6.      Third-Party Authorization
  7.      Request for Mortgage Assistance (RMA) form
  8.      IRS Form 4506-T


 Keep in mind that each bank may have it's own guidelines on how they work a Short Sale, so be sure to check with them up front to learn what they may require.
