My husband and I are wondering if we can be sued after our house has been foreclosed on. The sheriff sale was a year ago and it wasn't sold there but has since been sold to someone. We had two mortgage companies, a primary (countrywide) and a junior lender. We haven't heard from either one of them and the primary lender told us that after the sheriff sale, we were relieved of our duty to pay but we have now repaired our credit, I have gone back to work full time, and we are talking to the bank about another mortgage for a more affordable home. Do we still need to worry about being sued by either one of our former lenders or are we in the clear to pursue another mortgage? We live in MN where they do grant (even though it's rare) deficiency judgments. Can you give us a general idea of what, if anything, we could expect from the lenders? Is it likely they will sue? Could they end up taking our new home? Thanks for your time.
