      I’m interested in a HUD home. I contacted the listing agent and set up an appointment to view the home later this week (the earliest he was available to show the home). I drove by the home today and it has a “pending sale” sign on it. According to the HUD web site, the initial bidding on this home does not close until Sunday. Is it possible to sell the home before the bidding has closed?

      I would contact HUD about this.

      What is this, another example of “pass the buck” responsibility? No, a mortgage broker can not be held liable for a borrower’s inability to pay. They don’t “push it through” approval; it is their job to present it to lending agencies and secure financing for the borrower, and that is what they do.

      depend on the “buy-buy” clause of the investor you sent it thru. If you charged YSP and it went into EPD “early payment default” they will sue the broker for the YSP commision along with try to have you have the borrower refiance off there warehouse lines. If this occurs the broker will then go after you

      Good Luck

      If they commit fraud.

      And so can the borrower.

      Brokers don’t push through anything………they submit the loan. They have no control over underwriters that work for the lender.

      Mortgage Brokers are not the lender…….they submit to the lender the file…..

      Now if they enter fraudulent info they can be liable just like the borrower.

      No. The mortgage broker doesn’t approve loans, the underwriter that works for the lender does, and the underwriter simply is following guidelines provided to him/her by an investor that is willing to purchase loans that meet a certain criteria.

      Part of the mortgage bust needs to Fall on the hands of the borrowers…you need to KNOW if you can make the payments or not, and not rely on the lender to be a financial babysitter.
