    Hello all,

    I am considering walking away from a rental property in Ca that has two recourse loans with C.W. totaling 300k. The house is now worth about 150k. I have a primary residence with about 200k in equity. Will the lender on my investment property come after my equity on my primary residence. If so , how can I protect my primary residence.

    Your first loan will likely not be recourse because the lender will probably follow a non-judicial foreclosure path. That will probably not be the case with the second loan if I'm correct in sensing that it will lose its security interest as a result of the first loan's foreclosure. Therefore it will be treated as an unsecured loan for collection purposes.

    I would encourage you to read the following thread relating to California homesteads.

"Hello Moe, I just wanted to tell you, your website has saved my life (literally), I stumbled on your site in the middle of losing my home, I was able to network with people going through the same thing as I am. I didn't feel alone anymore, I have tried to give back and counsel those that haven't walked in my shoes yet. We hear so much about what is wrong with America, I just wanted you to know, you are whats "right" with America."
