Short Sale Relocation Assistance Program: Bank Of America Mortgage Customers could receive $5,000 to $30,000

Adding to its foreclosure prevention initiatives, Bank of America has launched a nationwide program that offers delinquent mortgage customers increased assistance with relocation expenses – between $2,500 and $30,000  at the completion of a qualifying short sale.

 

The short sale relocation assistance program builds on the bank’s already robust short sale initiatives, which led to 200,000 completed short sales in the last two years and another 30,000 in the first quarter of 2012. This program is based on a similar incentive offer that Bank of America tested in Florida last year.

 

To qualify for the enhanced relocation assistance payments under the new program, the seller must work proactively with the bank to obtain a preapproved sales price prior to submitting a purchase offer to the bank. A short sale must be initiated by the end of this year and close by September 26, 2013, to be eligible for the payment. Qualifying short sales that have already been started but have not closed may be eligible for the relocation assistance.

 

The amount of assistance provided under the new program will be determined on a case-by-case basis using a calculation that includes the value of the home, amount owed and other considerations.

 

Initially, the program will be offered on mortgages that are owned and serviced by Bank of America.

 

While available nationally, Bank of America anticipates greatest response to the program will come from borrowers in California, Nevada, Arizona, Florida and other states hardest hit by the economic downturn and falling property values.

 

Hampton Roads or Williamsburg BOA Customers who believe they may be eligible for Bank of America’s short sale relocation assistance program may contact program specialists at 757 254 8136

 

To help homeowners understand the short sale process and other foreclosure avoidance programs, Bank of America encourages them to visit the Home Transition Services website at www.bankofamerica.com/hometransition.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: If a short sale is initiated with an offer, will it qualify for this enhanced relocation assistance?
A:
No. Short sales initiated at the time an offer is received do not qualify for the enhanced relocation assistance funds.

Q: Is the enhanced relocation assistance eligible to non-owner-occupied properties?
A:
Yes, it is available to non-owner-occupied properties.

Q: Will the relocation assistance funds be reported on the HUD-1?
A:
Yes, funds received at closing will be documented on the HUD-1, and a 1099-MISC will be issued.

Q: Can the relocation assistance funds be used to pay off existing liens?
A:
Yes, a homeowner may use funds to pay off existing liens or to help with relocation expenses.

Q: Is the enhanced relocation assistance added to any other incentives, such as the HAFA or Bank of America Cooperative Short Sale Program incentives?
A:
The homeowner incentive will be inclusive of the $3,000 HAFA incentive. For example, if the homeowner is eligible for $5,000, then $3,000 will be from the HAFA funds and the remaining $2,000 will be from Bank of America homeowner incentive funds.
