In some cases the lender will pursue a deficiency judgment against borrowers and attempt to collect the amount that was short after the home has sold. This does require a separate action to be filed in court causing the mortgage company to incur further expense. The mortgage company is also acutely aware of the borrower’s inability to pay.
While a deficiency judgment is the right of the mortgagor in the State of Nevada, lenders are sometime willing to waive the right to deficiency judgment in their approval letter or through the HAFA program. We advise that you speak with an attorney and CPA for more information on potential consequences.
