Options with assignements/realtor question

I was told that in NJ I cannot get an option on a property and assign this to someone else if I am not a realtor (or take an option contingent upon finding someone to sublease if I am not a realtor.

 

Does anyone know if this is accurate or if I need to find a workaround?

 

Thank you,

  • Peter:

    The workaround would be to get a new realtor or lawyer. 

    Mine has held escrow for me on an assignment.....   and there were no realtors involved.  The buyer's attorney and sellers attorney did all the paperwork, they knew it was a flip.   My lawyer just acted as escrow agent (because the buyer's lawyer insisted that an escrow agent be used for assignment fee).   Otherwise i did not even need a lawyer.

    So I guess the three lawyers I dealt with disagree with your dumbass realtor :-)

  • That is what most people who dont fully understand assignments say when asked if they are legal. Nj allows them banks dont. But there are legal ways around that. One being adding your end buyer to the contract then after the closing quit claim the house over to him for your fee. He pays closing cost. Good luck.

    Frank,
  • Wakal,

    From my understanding, your 4th bullet point is just the opposite.  I believe it should read, "In case you CAN do a simultaneous closing or double-closing, you NEED a transactional lender..."

     

    This is because you need to fund the first deal (with the original seller) and because most closing agents or title companies will NOT do the deal unless the funds for both transactions are in escrow.

     

    Please correct me if I am mistaken in this regard.

    Also, it is ALWAYS preferrable to do an Assignment due to Closing Costs and chain of title.  With double-closings, your name/company name will be on the Title and recorded as such.  Also, you have to pay closing costs TWICE.  Once as the buyer and again as the seller.

  • From what I've learned after going to a couple of TSM workshops, (especially from the legal firm listed under our vendors - Levy, Ehrlich & Petriello), is that you must have a clause or addendum added to the contract for your protection. So you may not need a broker's license, but you definitely need a great attorney who knows what you're trying to do.

    Thanks, Wakal. That's great advice on necessary team members. I've never heard of a transactional funding company before. Should make for an interesting search!

  • You're all talking about two distinctly different things. Are you asking what the LAW allows or what the BANKS allow? The law, in NY and NJ allows for assignments.

    The banks, in short sale situations, do not. I've been doing assignments in NJ for many years and they are legal.

    The banks had no problem with assignments in a ss opportunity in the 90's, only recently.

    They are only opposed to taking less than is owed on their collateral by an investor, only to see that investor make a huge amount on their loss. I say, then the banks should learn how to be investors instead of banks.

  • If your option does not disallow an assignment, it is fine. BUT, what are the exact circumstances? If this is a short sale, the BANKS won't allow it. This is a different story.

  • That's why I can't stand most attorneys. 

  • I'm hearing the same type of thing as well. An attorney (here in NY) told me to just be sure I don't need a license when wholesaling. I'm looking for answers now. I'll get back to you as soon as I find an answer.
