HOW TO DO A SHORT SALE WHEN YOU HAVE A HUD PARTIAL CLAIM!

If you've ever done a loan modification or forbearance with your FHA mortgage, you may have a HUD partial claim. A partial claim is a lien against the home for back due funds, that becomes due at resale.

Sadly, most partial claims are for much more than homeowners expect. These partial claims frequently eat up all the equity in the home, leaving surprised homeowners upside down and unable to sell traditionally. 


If you lack the equity to sell, a short sale may be a solution. 

In a short sale, the lender agrees to accept less than the amount due on the mortgage as satisfaction of the loan, so that homeowners can sell and avoid foreclosure

Short sales with HUD partial claims work a little differently than most short sales with junior liens. 

While most junior liens accept a short payoff in a traditional short sale, HUD partial claims can never be settled. Instead they supersede the 1st position FHA mortgage, and MUST be paid in full, while the 1st mortgage takes all the losses.

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL SHORT SALE WITH A HUD PARTIAL CLAIM

  • You must be able to qualify for an FHA short sale in order to have the partial claim released
  • The HUD partial claim full payoff must be accounted for in the closing documents, when applying for the short sale approval 
  • Start early with HUD. Government entities never work fast.
  • Get an experienced short sale Realtor who understands how to work with HUD partial claims, as they will be handling the short sale processing on your behalf.

I reached out to Minna when we were first considering a short sale. I didn’t know much about the process or how it worked so naturally I had a ton of questions. She answered all of my questions as well as explained the process in detail so I would know exactly what to expect. Several months later, we kicked off the sale. I had heard so many horror stories about what can go wrong in a short sale so I was very uneasy. With Minna’s expertise the process was so much smoother than I could have ever anticipated! It was just over three months from the time we listed to closing (which is fast for a short sale)! Minna’s responsiveness and dedication along the way was a huge asset!! It’s because of her that our family is able to put the past behind us and move on to bigger and better things! I highly recommend her!
