Attorney Shanna Welsh-Levin is a member of the State Bar of California, and the San Diego County Bar Association. She is a member of the Real Property Law Section Executive Committee, and was elected Chair of the Real Property Law Section during 2015. Mrs. Welsh-Levin is a California licensed real estate broker and an active member of the San Diego Association of REALTORS®. She has served on committees at SDAR, and attended legislative functions as a representative of the association. She is also a member of the California Association of REALTORS®, and the National Association of REALTORS®. During the recession and housing crisis from 2007 through 2014, Mrs. Welsh-Levin participated in hundreds of HOME Clinics that took place throughout San Diego County, Imperial County, and Riverside County. The clinics were sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. As a volunteer attorney at these events, Ms. Welsh-Levin consulted with homeowners who were in distress because of their mortgages. Mrs. Welsh was instrumental in passing California’s short sale anti-deficiency statute. Working with Senator Denise Ducheny’s office, Ms. Welsh helped to introduce Senate Bill 931, to protect consumers from their lenders when they are unable to pay off the balance of their mortgage loan. The bill passed and made it mandatory for lenders to forgive the remaining balance of the mortgage debt, called the deficiency balance, when the homeowner/borrower completes a short sale of their home. When the bill went into effect on January 1, 2011, it created the California Code of Civil Procedure §580e. Mrs. Welsh counsels attorneys, real estate professionals, housing counselors, negotiators, and property owners about the law on short sales, foreclosures, and loan modifications.
