Bank of America’s Newest Form – Short Sale Contract Addendum

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Broadpoint Properties Cal BRE #01324959


Bank of America Bank of America has added yet another form to its arsenal. It’s a short sale purchase contract addendum (which you can view and download below).

According to the powers that be at Bee of Aaay, this contract addendum will aid in the prevention of fraud and will also help to provide a more transparent short sale process. This addendum is required for select short sale transactions initiated on or after April 4, 2011 (yes, that’s over a month ago).

As you will see when you review the addendum, it discusses property conditions, arm's length transactions, tenants, fraud, and real estate commissions among other topics.

Your short sale negotiator at Bank of America will notify you if this addendum is required.

When the addendum is necessary, you will receive a message and a copy of the addendum through the Equator system. The form must be uploaded into the Equator library within 14 days. Otherwise, you know what happens when you do not meet deadlines in Equator, don’t you?

Poof. Gone. You snooze you loose. Time to start that short sale all over again.

Here is a copy of the Bank of America Short Sale Purchase Contract Addendum. Please do not shoot the messenger.

They all copy each other, you know. Bank of America just wised up to what Wells Fargo has been doing for the past several years.
