A short sale is a real estate transaction where the homeowner sells the property for less than it is worth, usually to avoid foreclosure. If you are in this position, an experienced short sale attorney can guide you through the process, give you sound legal advice, and advocate on your behalf to ensure that your interests are protected.

At Moshes Law, we understand that clients considering a short sale are in a diffcult situation. Our compassionate attorneys provide you with the information you need to make the best decision for your unique circumstances.

BEFORE YOU CALL: ARE YOU QUALIFIED FOR A SHORT SALE?

A short sale is not the right solution for everyone. First, the buyer must be an individual or entity other than the mortgage lender. After the sale, the lender receives the full amount of the sale and then decides whether or not to forgive the balance on the loan.

Short sales are for homeowners who:

You may be denied a short sale if the offer price is too low (that is, the lender could recoup more money through foreclosure proceedings), you have other taxable assets whose sale could go toward mortgage payment shortfalls, you don’t provide necessary hardship documentation, or, unbeknownst to you or your representative, your loan has been acquired by a new lender.

ABOUT SHORT SALES IN NYC.

The details of short sales in NYC vary depending on the seller’s situation.

HERE’S WHAT USUALLY HAPPENS:

THE ROLE OF A SHORT SALE LAWYER.

If you are an individual homeowner considering a short sale, being represented by an attorney from a reputable law firm is essential. After all, your lender undoubtedly has an entire legal team at its disposal. Having your own attorney who knows about short sales levels the playing field.
Among other things, hiring a lawyer creates an attorney-client relationship. Once this relationship is established, the attorney has a fiduciary duty to you. This means he or she must act in your best interest.
Furthermore, there is an important distinction between real estate agents and New York short sale attorneys in this context. A real estate agent can help you with certain aspects of a short sale. However, he or she is prohibited from giving you any legal advice unless he or she is also a licensed attorney. On the other hand, as New York short sale attorneys, we must provide the legal advice and guidance you need to make a fully informed decision about a New York short sale.

Additionally, your short sale lawyer provides:

RELEASE-OF-PERSONAL-LIABILITY

RELEASE OF PERSONAL LIABILITY

There is no guarantee that lenders will forgive the remaining balance of the debt after the sale; as your attorneys, however, we ensure that any contract or agreement has provisions addressing this possibility.

PEACE-OF-MIND

PEACE OF MIND

We appreciate the stress our clients are going through. That’s we provide full support and take care of all correspondence. With us, you can rest assured that your sale is in expert hands.

    Hired Yuri to help me through coop purchase process. Yuriy and his staff answered all my questions promptly, I've had attorneys in the past that once paid would take their time and de prioritize your mails, etc..Not the case here. My initial purchase wound up folding week before scheduled closing date due to seller negligence. Almost a year later, I received same level of effort from Yuriy second time around, closed, and am very happy with professionalism and expertise provided.
