Leave/table - California foreclosure laws are some of the tedious in the county. You are a non practical judgment state.
I speak to a lot be people facing foreclosure. The state of GA, is a mess.
The answer to your question is yes on your second, and on your 1st.
The line holders position, the 2nd mortgage is behind the 1st mortgage. All they can do is file a judgment, that will go on your credit report. If you try and buy a future property, you will need to satisfy that amount.
You best option right now
- is to negotiate a lower settlement, before the courts award a judgment. Once there is a judgment, you can not ask for a lower settlement.
As for your 1st mortgage - letting a property go to a foreclosure, it can be listed your credit report for up to ten years. When the property does sell at an amount less then what you owed on the property. The lender can file a deficiency judgment.
Worst case - once there is a judgment, a sheriff can confiscate person personal property to satisfy the judgment.
If you get hit will a substantial deficiency judgment in the future- your two choices are paying it or filing bankruptcy.
The longer you wait to clear you your mess, the more it is going to cost you............
Let me ask you a question - what are your plans in 10 years, in five years, next year? Do you have any goals? What are you doing for yourself today, that will benefit yourself tomorrow?
Trying to take short-cuts today, will result in a longer route tomorrow......
The secret to success is scheduling yourself.
