Arizona Anti-Deficiency Protection, Short Sales and Foreclosure  If a borrower enters into a short sale agreement but the lender does not agree to waive its right to pursue a deficiency resulting from the sale, the borrower has lost the anti-deficiency protection available in foreclosure.

Debt Modification Strategies  If you are considering a loan modification (also known as "loan workout," "debt reformation" or "debt reconciliation") you generally must decide which is more important to you: maintaining your good credit rating or re-working your debt.

Deeds in Lieu of Foreclosure in Arizona  An Arizona borrower considering a deed in lieu of foreclosure should review all documentation associated with the loan and the lender’s offer and consider the legal concepts at work.

Secured Assets: Debt Negotiation and Judgment Protection  One of your main objectives before trying to negotiate a loan modification is to make yourself judgment-proof.
