Department of Veterans Affairs Compromise Sale Program (“VA Short Sale”)

Hunter Hanger has negotiated VA Compromise Sales with Bank of America, Wells Fargo, BB&T, Fifth Third Bank, Green Planet, USAA, Ocwen, Nationstar, NFCU, Suntrust, Chase, and a handful of other mortgage companies. They are actually the easiest type of short sale to negotiate, because the VA sets clear standards all servicers must follow when working with a

Many Active Duty Servicemembers are concerned that their security clearance prevents them from short selling their home. They have never missed a payment in their lives and can’t imagine the thought of not paying a debt. Thus, a short sale seems out of reach for them. Even if it was accessible, they would not do one because they’ve heard there are credit consequences.

However, the VA has instituted policies that insulate Servicemembers from many of the negative outcomes of a short sale. Firstly, there is an exception carved out for active duty Servicemembers in the typical requirement that a borrower be at least 30 days late on his/her mortgage in order to short sell. If you are active duty, you do not have to be late on your mortgage to qualify for a short sale.

Furthermore, if you were recently discharged from the military, or have PCS orders, you easily qualify for a hardship, as well as if you’ve suffered any of the conventional hardships (job loss, transfer, excessive debt, divorce, etc). You can still use your VA loan in the future to purchase a house. Just remember your eligibility amount will decrease by the amount forgiven on your short sale loan.

Hanger Law always advises a Servicemember alert their Commanding Officer or superior of their need to do a short sale. Remember, in a short sale, debt forgiveness is the aim. There will always be a slight credit impact when debt is forgiven by the bank.
