The good news is that most homeowners are able to walk away from their home without paying their lender another dime. A big part of this is because their lender agrees to that as part of the terms of the short sale.

In addition, many states, such as California, require lenders to erase any deficiency when a homeowner short sells their home.

But, these are for cases when the homeowner is short selling their house and the lender has included language in the short sale paperwork specifically releasing the borrower from a deficiency.

What about situations where this isn’t happening. As an example, many states allows lenders to collect a deficiency after a foreclosure. even when a lender.

With a judicial foreclosure the lender already has a judgment they can use to garnish wages and levy bank accounts. So does that happen? We haven’t seen any cases of it happening.

We think the reason is because most homeowners simply declare bankruptcy when they are faced with sudden $100,000 bill. The lenders see this happen a few times and decide it isn’t worth the effort.

Taking a look thru court cases at the local courthouse hasn’t turned up any lenders collecting on a deficiency. Remember, there are thousands more foreclosures than deficiency judgments.

The lenders probably view collection on a deficiency as difficult and unlikely to bring much return on the investment. That is why we think they don’t even both with it.
