Florida Foreclosure defense attorney and legal blogger, Roy Oppenheim, talks about deficiencies and deficiency judgments.
In Florida, if you don't pay back money you borrowed from your Florida bank on your primary or secondary residence, the bank can come after you and your property for up to 20 years.
A deficiency is when the bank forecloses on your house and a difference of money you owe remains. Once such a deficiency is registered by a court, it becomes a deficiency judgment.
In Florida, if you have a deficiency and it becomes a deficiency judgement, the Florida bank can seize your assets (bank accounts, cars, estate, etc.) for up to 20 years.
As your Florida foreclosure defense attorney, it is Roy Oppenheim's job to ensure that you are not subject to a deficiency or a deficiency judgment. Even if you are subject to either of these, it is lawyers like Roy Oppenheim that can help in ensuring that a deficiency or a deficiency judgment does not affect any of your life-cycle events.
Ultimately, Roy Oppenheim says that it was in fact the Banks and Wall Street that caused the current Florida real estate situation and not your supposed bad decisions.
