I will answer the 1st part of the question "What is a deficiency

judgment tied to property".A deficiency balance is whatever is left

of a loan when the security has been sold--such as a repoed car is

sold for less than the loan amount plus repo costs, storage, title

& taxes, the balance remaining on the loan after applying what

the car sold for is a deficit balance.A judgment was filed by the

lending company to recover whatever money is still due them anda

judgment automatically ties to real estate property if the borrower

owns a home.
