Hi. My name is ***** ***** I'm looking forward to helping you.
A foreclosure is simply the lender's action to recover the collateral that you have pledged to the lender to secure the loan. So, if you have a mortgage and it goes into default, the lender will start foreclosure proceedings to force the sale of your property which secures the mortgage to pay the loan. A suit for nonpayment is where the lender is suing the borrower personally for the monetary payment of the loan.
