Question: I have a mortgage and home equity line of credit on the same property with Countrywide. I am in Florida. If my property is foreclosed upon what happens to the home equity line of credit? Also am I held liable for taxes up to the foreclosed date?
Answer: -If your home has a first and second with the same lender, Countrywide, it’s almost treated like it’s one loan. If they send it through foreclosure, they’ll probably start at just what’s owed on the first and hopefully get someone to bid on it…If no one bids then they’ll end up with the property. Then they’ll probably write off that 2nd in which they could file for a deficiency judgment but more than likely they will 1099 you for that amount they lost and you’ll have to pay taxes on it. As for the property taxes, they’ll have to pay those in order to sell it to an end buyer.
