    What’s the likelihood of having a non-recourse mortgage in FLA? We “invested” in new construction that was originally financed by Pulte Mortgage in 2005 before being sold to Chase shortly the close. Calling up Chase, they say it’s non-recourse. We’re trying to find the words “recourse” or “non-recourse” or something to that effect in the closing documents. I know Florida is a recourse state. Any perspective is greatly appreciated!

      We appreciate your comment!

      In response to your question about recourse and non-recourse mortgages in Florida, it all depends on if you signed the note personally. If YOU DID… it’s recourse. Unless for some very unusual circumstances. Your best option is to show it to a lawyer to know for sure.

  2. tCA says:

    Thanks, Roy! We signed personally. I was shocked when Chase said it was non-recourse. I’m trying to get clarification and directed to where in the closing documents it says non-recourse. If/when we need some paid for legal advice, are you able to quarterback that for us? We’re in MN and have that “investment” property in Ft. Myers.

    Hi tCA, Roy is handling the defense of our investment condo foreclosure in Ft. Myers now values at less that 1/3 the amount of our loan, while we try to do a short sale. He can handle it, trust me. To get a short sale you’ll need time because the banks do not want them. Apparently they found a way to get kickbacks on appraisal fees, and other stuff involved in the short sales that they don’t want us to know, and make a killing that way, and the bank will try and screw you quickly into foreclosure and take months on end to go through with a short sale (scum bags!). Roy stops them on their tracks
