How could you assure yourself 100% from a deficiency judgmentafter a foreclosure, a deed in lieu of foreclosure or a SHORT SALE?
Before I can tell you how to avoid it 100%
You need to know exactly what a deficiency judgment is
It is what you signed for as a loan when you originally purchase your property
What the banks gets after the disposing of. . It’s their loss that could become a deficiency judgment
It doesn’t matter if they dispose of the property via
Foreclosure: At the court steps, it gets sold and you could get the bill for the difference.
Deed in Lieu: Even if the first lender approves this and promised not to pursue a deficiency against you, BEWARE OF THE SECOND . they are not happy that are excluded and will receive ZERO at the end. .they still have the right to come after you unless there was some kind of prior agreement with them.
Short Sale: When a short sale was approved, they may still preserve the right to pursue. . Unless is specifically addressed on their final short sale approval.
So, how can you be certain that the lender will never come after you with a deficiency?
It’s called The HAFA SHORT SALE
As a matter fact, every short sale that we do must go first to trough the HAFA test. We want a HAFA approval for our client because it guarantees that the lender will not seek adeficiency judgment against our them. . EVER!
As you know, that could make any homeowner happy. .in some cases we are getting a deficiencies waive on over a hundred thousands of dollars that the lender promises not to pursue!
