california homeowner bill of rightsIf you think the California Homeowner Bill of Rights is gonna help you to do a short sale, that would be faulty thinking.

It's a little bit too late when it comes to a short sale, though. The help needed by most Sacramento short sale sellers is on the front end, not the back end.

It's a government program.  Like most, it doesn't address the problem.  The legislature in California should concentrate on balancing their budget and overhauling the bloated retirement system that is draining any fund that might be available to pay off the debt.

The problem with our lawmakers is that I really don't think they understand the problem.  They fumble around trying to figure out how to help in some way, but they fail.

Morning Elizabeth well here we go again.  Most government programs just put a band aid on the would when it needs stitches.
