Ed
I understand your response and thank you. In March and February of this year there were several posts idicating that when doing an assignment you should get
"seller’s release of liability" and this is where I am confused. Why? How is it worded?

Regards
Frank

Please share with me the form you use to get “release of liability” when flipping houses. I refer to seller releasing me from liability. This site often refers to this release but I don’t recall ever seeing a form posted.

Frank

Hi Frank-

Go to Bill Bronchick’s site where there’s a form you can use. Look at the bottom of the form, where the seller signs, and you’ll see the release clause. Here’s a link to the .pdf file:

Generally “release of liability” that is discussed in the flipping situation is from the Lender. Usually this requires a credit check and often a complete loan application just as if the buyer were purchasing using a new loan. Lenders regularly charge a one point (one % of the loan amount) for this service, sometimes more.

The way to keep from assuming the liability from the seller is to simply not assume it. It sounds too simple, but when you purchase “subject to” the existing financing, you assume NO liability for that loan. You do not have any liability going in, so do not assume any; and you never will have it.
