The new CAAR requirement to disclose the “distressed short sale” is a step in the right direction. This disclosure allows everyone involved in the transaction to be aware in advance of the potential short sale issues. Most of the short sale sellers I have talked to have not objected to such a disclosure. Allowing everyone in advance to understand this is a short sale can save time and potentially many problems. Great first step CAAR!
PS—A future step for CAAR might include providing some uniform Short Sale Addendums and Information Forms.
