Short SaleEx was awarded house in divorce - he was ordered to refinance - didn't - house was short saled - I was not aware he wasn't making payments - GMAC Mortgage advised as long as one signing party (him) was aware of the default they had no obligation to notify me. The best I could possibly hope for was a judgement against him for failing to follow a court order. That does nothing for me now that I want to buy a home on my own because no one wants to touch me because of the short sale. Is there any way I can work with this? I don't believe it's been 4 years yet and it's driving me nuts knowing I have to live in a dumpy little apartment because rent here in this area is astronomical and it's actually cheaper to pay a mortgage payment. I don't want a Taj Mahal just a little place to call my own.
