Fannie Mae Begins a new Pilot Program for Cash for Keys in California.

By
Real Estate Agent with Labrum Real Estate

questions Fannie Mae has rolled out a new Pilot program with their current Cash For Keys (CFK) program called Cash Up Front Funds. The Pilot program will run for 75 days beginning May 3, 2010 through July 16, 2010. The way the program works is the Real Estate Broker is to inform the occupant of a Fannie foreclosure that 50% of the CFK is available Immediately if they agree to the CFK and need assistance to move from the property. All terms of the agreement must be agreed upon in writing for the occupant to receive any funds.

 Many times Tenants are caught unaware that the property has been foreclosed as they paid their rent on time to the former owner. The chances of them getting their deposit money back is slim short of a Small Claims Lawsuit which takes months so this may be a big help in getting them moved into another home. Many homes have been foreclosed by Fannie Mae in Murrieta California and my partner, Darla Espinoza, and I have dealt with many of these tenants. 99% of them accept the CFK but there have been times they did need help to move but no up front money was available.

 Most of the former owners we encounter have the money to move as they have not paid their mortgage in a very long time. Fannie Mae is still very generous in the amount of money they offer whether to the former owner or a tenant but the Brokers are still required to pay out of our pockets and wait for reimbursement. No problem but a little more bookwork to do and make sure it's correct.

 In the rare event the occupant takes the upfront money and fails to move out on time the Normal Eviction Process will take place. Only time will tell if this program becomes permanent.

If you are looking for a home in Murrieta, Temecula, Menifee or the surrounding communities please feel free to contact me with your questions.

Christin, The dollar amount vary from lender to lender. There is no set amount they are required to offer and I'm sorry to hear you are unemployed.

My home was foreclosed on 1/26/12 and Fannie Mae bought it back. A notice was posted on the door on the 27th and I was harassed by the realtor for a week...banging on my door and ringing my door bell over and over again and leaving their card. The notice clearly stated that I had 10 days to get in touch with the realtor so why the harassing. Its bad enough I lost my home. I finally contacted the realtor and told her I was an ex of the homeowner and I was renting from him and I should have tenants rights.. and she said I was still considered a relative...is this so? Also she said fannie mae only offers 2090.00 to move out in a 2 week period. Is this true too? I thought it was 1% of the original loan amount. Please can someone shed some light on this... Thank you!

The house was sold as a REO at auction on December 28th.  We contacted Fannie Mae before anyone from the Bank of America or the new lister for the property even got ahold of us.  I was willing to leave the property clean and vacant.  No cost to the lender for expenses except the Cash for Keys deal.  They negotiated with us and we had come to an agreement on January 14th.  Since then the Fannie Mae Corp has filed a Unlawful Detainer on us and proceeded with Eviction.  No contract was every sent to us the Lister refuses to return our calls or Texts or Emails.  Fannie Mae told us to call the law firm handling the Eviction.   I am very upset that Fannie Mae has not kept its end of the deal.  We are unemployed and have a child.  No family to turn to and no where to go.  I don't know what I am going to do, but I know I am not going to let them get away with this.  I will comment on the outcome to this story.  If you are dealing with this company have all agreements FEDEx to you immediately and make sure you get copies of all agreements for legal disputes if necessary.  Good Luck?
