RE: Hardship Letter - Short Sale for (your address)

Dear Creditor:

This letter is written to explain my current financial situation and the approval of a short sale of my property at (your address).

Due to (the reason for your hardship) I am unable to meet my financial obligations on my current mortgage. I am delinquent on several of my bills and am unable to keep up at this time.

I have lived in my home since (date) and have, until recently, been on time in making my mortgage payments. Due to my financial hardship and the declining economy I can no longer meet this obligation. An offer has been made on my home for ($) and I request that you accept this offer as a short sale. This is the best offer I have received in my attempt to sell my property.

I have enclosed documents for the past 3 months to explain the financial situation I am currently going through. As you can see, if this offer is not accepted I will not be able to meet any of my financial obligations.

I am embarrassed that I am in this current situation and would like to avoid further financial difficulties by continuing negative credit and mounting financial obligations.

If you have any questions please contact me at (phone number).
