Lenders, Realtors Divided on Arizona Foreclosure Law HW+

Jul 27, 2009By

Realtors and bankers are gearing up for a battle over Arizona legislation that would allow lenders to sue homeowners for losses incurred from a foreclosure. The change to the state’s so-called “deficiency judgment” law requires a borrower to live in the home for six months to be eligible for protection from lender-initiated lawsuits to recoup the full outstanding principal of a mortgage. Proponents of the law, including bankers that lobbied for the change, believe it will discourage investors from walking away from properties when they can’t make a profit.
