Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, not only most mortgage lender's require seller's social security number due to stringent new banking laws, before a mortgage could be approved for the buyer, but also closing attorney / title agent has to have seller's and buyer's social security numbers for tax reporting purposes, so generally, not disclosing seller's social security number is ***** an option under the current laws.
I wish you the best of luck!
