    I am currently providing 24 hour health care to my mother that is dying on Hospice. I am a R.N. and currently unemployed due to this my hardship. My partner is also a R.N. and working Santa Barbara County Mental Health. I am currently the only one on the house loan. I was wondering if a short sale would be of any use to us by selling it to my partner. Our current monthly mortgage is over 3000. dollars. I woud appreciate any feedback. Thank you and I really hope there is something out there for us to keep our family home. Thank you Lucinda Castellanos

    • Santa Maria Short Sale Agent says:

      Hi Lucinda, Thank you for visting my site. Many (but not all) banks will require that you sign an “arm’s length” statement certifying that the sale is between parties not related by blood, marriage or business relationship. Often, they also require a certification that you as the short sale seller will not continue to live in the property after the sale. Given the state of the current housing market, I think these policies are extremely disruptive. But, these are the typical policies you will come up against that will probably prevent you from being able to short sell the house to your partner. If you do choose to go forward with the plan — I would make sure the relationship is fully disclosed (in writing) to the lender. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions (805) 878-9879. Tni
