    In accordance with my research jotubuc, after a the foreclosure home is bought at an auction, it is common for any borrower to still have a remaining balance on the personal loan. There are many financial institutions who attempt to have all fees and liens paid back by the up coming buyer. On the other hand, depending on a number of programs, restrictions, and state laws and regulations there may be many loans which aren’t easily fixed through the exchange of lending options. Therefore, the duty still falls on the borrower that has obtained his or her property foreclosed on. Thank you for sharing your thinking on this blog site.
