For 4 yrs I've been working to try to keep our home. Not owned by Freddie or Fannie therefore no HARP. WF sold our note AFTER we did a loan mod in 2010 with the "suggestion" we could do another loan mod when our note goes up 2K/mth this June 2016. New investors (note holders) say NO to that. Our home never recovered so is upside down. WF now says we need to either do a SS or Deed in Lieu. We don't want to move but are being forced into this or pay 130K roughly that we don't have. Only option/hope is for someone to buy the home then maybe we could rent, lease or buy it from them. Is this legal in CA?
