You'll need to consult with an attorney. The fact that you got foreclosed on doesn't mean you don't owe anything; the bank just exercised it's right to foreclose since you did not pay them.

This is, by the way, a good incentive for owners to go through a short sale process.

You absolutely need an attorney to review all the documents you signed as part of the foreclosure & what your rights & responibilities are. These are very specific legal questions and need the proper legal advice on how to proceed & respond.


Hope that helps,

Call a lawyer! It is important to know whether Massachussetts even allows for deficiency judgments and whether your specific case permits them as well. This foreclosure mess is so confusing it may be possible that the company that bought the debt is not familiar with the rules.

I agree with my colleagues, you definitely need the expert advice of an attorney. From my years of experience, you may be looking at possibly filing a bankruptcy in order to discharge this debt. A good attorney will guide you through the whole process--just make sure this is an area of their true expertise. Good luck!
