As long as you continue to make payments on the other home they can not force you to sell or take your home from you. If you consider Bankruptcy however, a judge may have different ideas about how to put you in a position where you can more easily afford your monthly obligations.
Let me know if you would like someone to contact your lenders on your behalf at no charge. DO NOT pay anyone upfront to help you negotiate with your current lenders. Too many scams out there.
What you need to do is determine if your loan (that is being foreclosed upon) was it securitized? Through a securitization audit and a mortgage scene investigation you can identify any irregularities in the foreclosure process. Many times we find that the Deed of Trust was assigned after a Notice of Default. And, that alone is a tail-tail sign that the loan was improperly placed into that trust and the parties involved are trying to now reunite the Deed and the Note in the attempt to cove there paper trail. Only a securitization audit can unwind the trust and the parties involved and determine how the loan was securitized and what really happen. The point I like to focus in on is the State Laws in which a trust must adhere to. If the Trust is administered in the State of New York (which about 90% are) then the Trust has to Adhere to that state's Common Trust Laws. Many want to argue that UCC Article 3 and Article 9 cover that issue but Common Trust Law trumps UCC 3 and 9.
Robo-signing is another major element to the Foreclosure crisis and if youâ€™re in a Trust Deed state; the chances that you can unwind this fraud is unlikely unless you step in front of the Lender and try to protect yourself.

Of course if your house is that value in Orange County, in today's hot market, you could probably sell it quickly, with multiple offers, if you'd prefer to sell, rather than stay in the property.
