If there is an agreement and an applicable waiting period is not waived, a deficiency judgment may be obtained on a mortgage in Indiana.

This means that deficiency judgments in the state of Indiana are allowed by state statute if it is authorized by loan documents and if borrowers do not waive applicable waiting period.

In very broad terms, the judgment creditor can apply to the court for a writ of sale and have the sheriff sell the property at a public auction. The exact time line will vary by state and will depend on whether or not you are entitled to a deficiency judgment. For example, California has two different time lines. If a deficiency judgment is not available or the creditor waives the right to get a deficiency judgment, then the sheriff gives 120 days notice of levy and 20 days notice of sale. if there is the right to have a deficiency judgment, the sale occurs after 30 days but the owner has a 90-day right of redemption.

No, you can have a judgment against you for a default.

If the sellers sold the home for as much as they owed on the loan, there is no possibility for a deficiency judgment, since there is no deficiency.

A deficiency judgment is where the owner of a mortgage or deed of trust is awarded a judgment against the borrower in the amount of: the amount of money owed in the mortgage or deed of trust minus the amount of money the property sold for at foreclosure sale If the above amount is a positive number, some states allow the lender to get a judgment for that amount.

When a lender forecloses on a mortgage, the total debt owed by the borrower to the lender frequently exceeds the foreclosuresale price. The difference between the sale price and the total debt is called a "deficiency."Example. Say the total debt owed is $200,000, but the home only sells for $150,000 at the foreclosure sale. The deficiency is $50,000.

Stat. sections 33-741 to 33-749, 33-801 to 33-821, 12-1281 to 12-1283, 12-1566

My understanding is that you are right and the deficiency judgment cannot be persued after the foreclosure action by the lender that did the foreclosure in California "IF THE LOAN is a PURCHASE MONEY loan (which means the loan was used to purchase the property). However, if the loan is a refinance or a HELOC than the No Deficiency Judgment Rule does not apply. However, if a Short Sale is done instead of a Foreclosure - then the foreclosure action no longer exists and the lenders (non-purchase or purchase) can persue a deficiency judgment. Also - if I understand this correctly - even if the second lender is purchase money - if the 1st forecloses, the second did not - and therefore may be entitled to persue a deficiency judgment.

No... Illinois is a recourse state.... They can come after you for a deficiency judgment.

Then the lender can proceed collection efforts, which can lead up to a lawsuit, a judgment, wage garnishment, or lien on your property.
