IL – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Mau. Here is Mau’s Question.

“Is it legal for a short sale seller to buy the house he is selling on short to reduce his mortgage loan?” asked Mau.

Here was our answer. We don’t know of any law on the books that forbids a person from buying a home they are short selling. Here is what we do know.

Most banks and lenders don’t allow it. If the short sale negotiator sees a sales contract with you as the buyer, then they won’t approve the short sale.

Sure, you could do fishy paperwork to buy the home yourself. But, you risk getting in trouble for fraud if you were caught.

I think the biggest reason people aren’t trying this is because they can’t get a loan after a short sale. You aren’t able to buy another house for 2 years after a short sale.

There is an FHA loan program that allows you to buy after a short sale. But, one of the stipulations is that you must be buying a smaller or inferior home.

If you are looking to reduce your mortgage loan, do it the legal way. Get a loan modification with your current lender. Or, short sale your current home, rent for 2 years, and then buy a new home.

That allows you to wipe out the upside down debt and move on with your life. And best of all, you aren’t at risk of going to jail for fraud.
