I'm in PA and have worked with quite a few short sales with much success. I've recently run into a situation, however, where the seller has accepted an agreement and submitted the short sale package to the lender I only to have a second offer come in from a second buyer. I explained to the second buyers agent that an offer had been accepted and submitted but her buyer insists on a written rejection from the lender! I want to be cautious in maintaining full disclosure to the appropriate parties....it would seem to be in the sellers' & the lenders' best interest to terminate the first agreement in favor of the second. Having said that..the seller still owns the property, not the lender, so wouldn't it stand to reason that simply stating that there is already an executed agreement of sale be sufficient? We've offered to keep the second buyer's offer as a back up but he/she is insisting that it be presented to the lender. Anyone run across this? What would be the proper procedure?
