Read -- coverage of this first -- here Bob we lost our home in Arizona in 2010 we had it up for a short sale.
But that didn't work now the second mortgage is going after us it's been two years how long can they pursue the collection.
Of the second mortgage that's from -- Would we sign up for a mortgage.
We sign a promissory note a promissory note by definition is a contractor promising to pay.
In most every state in the country there are some exceptions there's usually what we call a six year statute of limitations that being.
From the time that you breach or don't pay that promissory -- Then they can't pursue.
The contract for payment now the reason why it's -- because this was a second mortgage.
And most second -- Clayton are basically they're like an unsecured creditor.
They basically they're -- -- like -- credit card so they do have the right to pursue it.
They could end up selling this note to a collection agency the collection agency could pursue it.

We are paying the H -- -- what can we do.
You know I have to tell -- this is of major problem.
When you file chapter thirteen that's a reorganization.
Type of payment that.
Even though you surrender home believe it or not I can't tell you.
How many homes in America people that have walked away that the foreclosures haven't happened and it's still in their day here's the most important thing.
As long as that home this title to you legally.
You should always maintain insurance on that home.
Because if something happens -- that home you could be held responsible about many lenders put the insurance on that in this case probably what happened.
Fell through the cracks.
