What are the short sale relief laws that are set to expire in 2012, and how could they help me?

SB-931 – This law prevents your 1st mortgage lender from pursuing a deficiency from you after your short sale is closed. Let’s assume that you owe $100,000 more than what your home sells for. Before SB-931 you may have been liable to repay the bank that amount. Until December 31, 2012, once your short sale is approved by the bank, you are free of that $100,000 liability.

SB-458 – This law is similar to SB-931 above, but is applied towards subordinate or secondary mortgages. Again, if your short sale is approved by the subordinate lender, you will be released from your secondary deficiencies.

SB-401 – This mortgage forgiveness debt relief act allows taxpayers who have had all or part of their loan balance on their principal residence forgiven by their lender, to exclude the forgiven debt from their CA gross income. This tax relief is for those who short sell their homes in California and applies to discharges of qualified residence indebtedness before December 31, 2012.

Mortgage Forgivness Debt Relief Act of 2007 – This law generally allows taxpayers to exclude income from the discharge of debt on their primary residence. Debt reduced through a short sale qualifies for this relief. This applies to loans that were used to acquire, build, or improve upon on the home. Before this law, the same $100,000 deficiency used in the example above could have been seen as income for tax purposes.

Always consult your tax advisor regarding how the above laws may apply to your individual situation.

What does all this really mean to me?

This means that if you have fallen behind on your mortgage payments – or are about to – that the time to take action is now. Any delay that causes your San Elijo Hills short sale home to sell after December 31, 2012 could cost you and your family thousands of dollars in deficiencies and taxes.

The best way to begin to plan an actionable exit strategy is to consult with your Team of experts. The first step of this process is to contact an experienced local real estate team to speak about various options available for you.

Always consult your tax advisor regarding how the above laws may apply to your individual situation.

Our goal is the same as yours – to complete a successful short sale of your home, allowing you to move forward with a clean slate.  Begin this process today by contacting us at for a no-obligation confidential consultation.
