Florida is a RECOURSE State; meaning that they can seek a DEFICIENCY JUDGEMENT against homeowners who default.

We haven't seen too much of D.J. yet;
it can vary from State to State,
The time elements for when they can file can vary;
The Federal Government is leaving it up to the States, so far.

One of the biggest questions may be;
Does the defaulter have a bunch of hidden assets, and can the Bank disclose them?

Good luck and may God bless

Simply put, yes they can. If you own multiple properties in your name or the name of a llc or realty trust then they can lein the other properties or seek an attachment through court for the shortfall on the one being foreclosed.
