I posted this in another section but it probably is more appropriate for this sub-forum as it is a legal issue and was hoping that somebody that knows the law or has experience with this could chime in. There are strict guidelines under CA law in regards to what a “foreclosure consultant” can and cannot do; failure to comply can result in jail time and fines. It seems to me that under the code a wholesaler could be considered as a “foreclosure consultant”. A “foreclosure consultant” is partially defined as someone who 1) offers to save an owner’s home from foreclosure and
2) receives compensation from such offer
Legally could the compensation be construed as the right to buy the house in the form of the contract the wholesaler signs with the seller? If anybody can elucidate where I am going wrong here and if CA courts do or do not consider wholesalers as “foreclosure consultants” I would greatly appreciate it.
