What is a Deficiency Balance and What Can I Do About It?
A deficiency balance is a result of a sale of property, such as a car, boat, or home that was repossessed or foreclosed upon, but the amount of money from the sale was insufficient to cover the amount owed. Your creditor may then go to court in order to obtain a deficiency judgment against you in order to collect the remaining balance. If you have been notified that you have a deficiency balance, you could be looking at several actions that the holder of the judgement could take against you in order to collect.
