Many homeowners in foreclosure are tempted to announce an agreement as a "seller leaseback". I've always answered no, as this arrangement as a "seller leaseback" known, is often a bad deal for everyone involved.

At first it seems like a good deal for the buyer because the property is for receive significantly below market value, and you already have a tenant appears, ready and eager to pay their rent. However, there is often easier to resentment in these situations and sellers soon no longer pay their rent and maintenance of the property, if they realize it no longer belongs to them.

The IRS casts a suspicious eye on these Transactions, and both parties have to be examined at greater risk. These transactions were used to hide assets and the appearance of the property, so that the IRS is likely to take a close look at your finances and tax returns, if you enter into this type of agreement. The IRS may opt for "reclassified" The sale and leaseback, which could be the buyer of the loss of a great deal of money and are now excluded by their new lender. If the seller files later Insolvency, bankruptcy was the sellers have to decide Leaseback an attempt to hide assets. The court could confiscate the property to secured debt and to satisfy tax liens.

Foreclosure scam artists often use a seller-leaseback agreement for the orchestration of their fraud. A homeowner in the Foreclosure typically looks for a way to keep their homes do not sell. The scam artist will present a deal seems that fair  stop your foreclosure, and they You can rent the house until you're back on your feet. But the formalities of registration makes it difficult if not impossible to go back to your home. In some cases suggests the fraudsters to resort to an act "in escrowÂ" Â-in the jargon that means nothing except heÂ'll, insert them in a file cabinet in his office. The minute you are late or miss a rent payment, it takes practice and you evicted. Now he is the owner of the house and you have no legal consequences. Other types of fraud at the exorbitant repayment terms, hidden fees or unreasonable terms imply that all add up to lose Make your house.

They would be well advised to keep a watchful eye on the seller's leaseback arrangements votes. Not all such agreements illegal, there are good, honest People who engage in these types of transactions. But out in my experience, very few of these work for the homeowner for one reason or another. The bottom line is this: the seller leaseback transactions are a bad deal for both parties. You can decide not to accept this offer, an investor, but think She carefully read the fine print, and this only as a last resort. Very few people end up buying their houses in these offers, and believe me, the investors one or scam artists – know it.
