FHA denial for a short sale when loan was in ex-wife's name.My brother inlaw just was advised his loan was not approved for FHA because in the divorce decree it states he needs to make payments on the home till the home sells. He made the payments during this time and provided check stubs as well. The ex-wife sold the home as a short sale. His name was not on the home in any way at all. Now he is trying to get a FHA loan and is being told that he is denied because the home went to short sale. Since his name is not on the note and he has no say at all in how she sells the home since he isnt on the note the bank wont even discuss the loan with him how can he be denied when he followed the divorce decree that he made monthly payments till the sale of the home?September 26 2012 - Columbus00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
