Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.
If you do not pay your mortgage, a lender can foreclose on your property. North Carolina does not have an anti-deficiency statute. Deficiency judgments resulting from foreclosure can be obtained in North Carolina.
A lender can take action to collect on a deficiency judgment, including garnishing bank accounts, liening your home and other assets.
One possible solution is called a "deed in lieu of foreclosure".
