Hi JACustomer,
1) Is your home a one or two-family home?
2) Is your home on less than 2.5 acres?

3) Were your mortgage(s) used to purchase your home?

Last question:

What were the second and third mortgages used for?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
home improvements
Expert:  cfortunato replied 5 years ago.

If you stop paying the mortgages, and given the information you provided, the second and third mortgage companies - but not the first - can pursue deficiency judgments for the balance due on those loans after your house sells in a foreclosure sale. Arizona Stat. 33-729(A).
