What Happens to You After a Foreclosure?

If the lender has taken your home in foreclosure in the natural flow of events, you expose yourself to the possibility of a deficiency judgment. This represents the difference between the amount of your loan and the amount the lender was able to sell the property for. Given the recent drop in home values through Nassau and Suffolk Counties, this could be a considerable sum. A judgment may result in the lender garnishing your wages or automatically taking payments from your bank account.

This could have numerous negative consequences, including:

  • Failure to qualify for future loans
  • Inability to qualify for credit cards
  • Excessively high-interest rates
