No. The incoming LENDER'S approval was relatively quick--after all, I merely ran a DU and met the listed conditions--but the outgoing INVESTOR that stands to lose money took several weeks to approve the short sale price. Now comes clearance of the 22 liens.

No approval by the incoming INVESTOR is required.

A short sale shouldn't even be part of this discussion. It's an anomaly--albeit a frequent one in the current real estate environment.
