Unforunately Tennessee does permit deficiency judgments. Thus your deficiency will need to be added to your Chapter 13 plan.
An alternative to the deficiency judgment may be a "deed in lieu of foreclosure".
This procedure allows you to transfer your property voluntarily to your lender or Mortgage Company and your debt or deficiency is often forgiven.
With a deed in lieu of foreclosure a borrower whose mortgage is in default voluntarily transfers title to the mortgaged property to the lender rather than forcing the lender to engage in a long and costly foreclosure action. The lender must consent to the transfer.
There are various reasons why a lender would not agree to accept a deed in lieu of foreclosure. For example, if it appears that the borrower has the resources available to cover any deficiency that may result most lenders will refuse to forgo the ability to collect the deficiency. Also, if the borrower is current in his payments, the lender has no incentive to negotiate.
If a deed in lieu of foreclosure is the route you decide to take, I suggest that you write to the lender or lender's attorney by certified mail, RRR and request this process.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
