Get Legal Representation for a Las Vegas Short Sale

A Las Vegas short sale is a common way for mortgagors to vacate a property that is worth significantly less than the mortgage without the property entering foreclosure. Often, a short sale agreement will also include a plan to settle the remaining mortgage debt after the sale has been completed. Otherwise, lenders can pursue the remaining balance under the loan agreement for up to six years. For both residential and commercial property owners, Cogburn Law Offices will make sure a short sale gets you out from under a burdensome mortgage, has as little impact on your credit rating as possible, and fits within your long-term financial plan.


Las Vegas Short Sales for Residential Properties

Residential Las Vegas short sales are more common and more complex than ever. As banks deal with the glut of foreclosed and distressed properties, new practices are being established that may make it easier to reach a short sale agreement. Yet, it’s often only with professional legal representation that borrowers can avoid abusive lender practices and inequitable short sale terms.

Cogburn Law Offices can help you with a short sale if:

  • You can no longer afford your home
  • Your mortgage is more than the rental income
  • You have suffered a hardship
  • You have been forced to relocate
  • You are worried about a deficiency judgment
  • You have suffered numerous other circumstances

From the initial assessment of the mortgage status and loan terms to making sure a lender isn’t pursuing you for years for an outstanding mortgage balance, Cogburn Law Offices offers comprehensive legal services for your Las Vegas short sale.


Las Vegas Short Sales for Commercial Properties

Since most buyers are unwilling to leave large sums of money uninvested for any length of time, commercial short sales are often conceived and completed in just a week or two. Additionally, to minimize the larger losses they face on commercial properties, banks are often more willing to accept a wide range of short sale agreements with terms that are favorable to the commercial property holder. Thus, there are fewer rules of the road where commercial properties are concerned and more creative solutions are possible that protect the financial interests of each party. Moreover, expedited documentation is not unusual, because banks closely monitor large commercial property loans that are not performing.

For these reasons, legal representation is often necessary to manage short sales for commercial properties. With huge financial stakes and a truncated timeframe, this process needs the failsafe of an experienced and diligent attorney overseeing the documentation and legal agreement. Cogburn Law Offices will consider the best way to structure a Las Vegas short sale for you, forcefully negotiate with commercial lenders and ensure the short sale proceeds according to the agreement reached by both parties.
