Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Whether your loan is recourse or non-recourse depends on the state law that applies......so you'd need to look at the promissory note and/or the deed of trust to see what the document says about applicable law. If the loan documents say that GA law applies, then there would be recourse to seek a deficiency judgment because GA is a recourse state.
But, if the loan documents says that CA law applies, then you shouldn't have the exposure for a deficiency judgment since CA is a non-recourse state.
My suspicion is that since the property is in GA, that the loan documents will say that GA law applies. But, you'd have to check to make sure.
