I am trying to buy a house and the loan officer is asking for a sheriff’s deed to show the seasoning period has been longer than three years for an FHA loan. The house that was foreclosed on was in South Carolina and I am currently trying to buy a house in Indiana. I was able to get ahold of the register of deeds and they are providing me with the deed that was in my name and also the deed to show when the mortgage company repossessed the home. I was also able to get ahold of the Master of Equity office and they provided me with the document that shows when the house was sold at the sheriff’s sale (Signed by the Judge), but none of these say sheriff's deed. I know real estate laws are different in each state, but the mortgage agent is adamant that it must say Sheriff’s deed. Can anyone help with this, or guide me in the correct direction if South Carolina does offer a Sheriff’s deed?
