When Does the Bank Stop Accepting Short Sale Offers?

Question: In State of New York: if a home is sent to foreclosure attorney by the lender, can the lender accept an offer of a short sale from a creditable buyer, if the short sale is offered within a day or two of the monthly deadline for the mortgage payment? For example: December 31 is the deadline for mortgage payment. If not made, lender says property automatically goes to the foreclosure attorney and they cannot accept short sale offer, and the foreclosure attorney proceeds with foreclosure. Also, when does homeowner receive foreclosure notice from lender's foreclosure attorney?

Response: The actual legal commencement of foreclosure can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the lender and the laws of the state. Short sale is one of the ways to avoid foreclosure. Once a foreclosure sale is scheduled, it is hard to go another route and do a short sale but until the sale is scheduled, you can list your property for sale and send the package to the bank for approval. The bank will always choose a short sale over foreclosure.
