My mother had a reverse mortgage with Financial Freedom. She died in September 2012 and the property is upside down. My sister and I are the heirs and do not want the property; we want to "walk away." Our attorney is telling us to do a short sale so that we won't have to pay property taxes, HOA fees, and home insurance during the months-long process of Financial Freedom foreclosing on the home. I am wary of that as he (attorney) is heavily pressuring us to do the short sale (benefit to him in some way?) We would like to let Financial Freedom handle it all IF we know we won't have to pay the taxes, HOA and insurance until the deal is done. Please advise…can't sleep!!
