Question of the Week
Q: Joe, we are currently trying to modify our loan with our lender. Our home is in default, and we have an IRS lien against our home that the bank says is stopping us from modifying the loan. What can we do? —Martha, San Bruno
A: Martha, it is possible to apply to the IRS to have them subordinate the lien behind your lenders. With the IRS lien in second postion, most banks will allow you to continue with the modification or short sale. Please be aware that banks today are proceeding with the foreclosure process as you work to modify the loan, so keep on top of the county records for a notice of default or trust sale, watch all your correspondence with the bank (and communicate with them!). The last thing you want to have happen is the bank foreclose on you while you are negotiating the loan modification or short sale.
For more information on the IRS lien subordination process, check out the IRS website.
