I’m Seriously Ill  — Will that Qualify me for a Short Sale?

Yes, many short sale lenders consider a serious illness a

hardship.  Receiving a diagnosis of a chronic illness, having a serious health event such as a heart attack, cancer, or a recent diagnosis of a disability that will affect your ability to earn future income, will generally qualify you for a short sale.  Potential short sale sellers should provide a personal hardship letter describing the details of the illness and how it requires them to sell their home or how it impacts their ability to pay the mortgage.In addition, I usually advise clients to obtain a hardship letter from their physician documenting their illness to their lender.  Even if the lender does not require such a letter, I’ve found that providing supplemental and supporting documentation will boost the strength of a short sale application.  You should be aware that even if illness is the reason for the hardship, your lender may still request your financial documents for their file.
