Will I Have My Wages Garnished After A Ventura County Short Sale?

Ventura County CA – Many people are concerned about a deficiency after a short sale. They are afraid that their bank may garnish all of their wages.

It's scary to think that at any moment your bank could grab every dime you make and leave you broke. Most people short sell their house because of financial problems.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

They can't afford to lose a month's worth of salary. But, here is the good news. There is a maximum amount that anyone can garnish. According to Department of Labor's Website, anyone garnishing your wages can take a maximum of 25% of whatever you earn.

Sure, it's not fun to have 25% of your earnings taken. But, 25% is much less than the 100% that most people think they will take.

So, even if you do get a deficiency on your short sale, it is not the end of the world. They cannot take all of your money and ruin your life.

Before your lender can garnish your wages they usually have to go to court and get a judgment against you. That takes time and costs money. A lawsuit can cost them a thousand dollars or more.
The high costs causes lenders to think twice before sueing most homeowners. Even better news is the fact that there are a lot of loopholes. For example, in Florida the head of household is exempt from garnishment.

Most garnishments have to be approved by a judge. If you can show the judge that you have kids to take care of, then they may deny the garnishment.

Or, you can show the judge that a garnishment would cause you serious financial hardship where you couldn't afford gas to drive to work.

The bottom line is that so few homeowners who short sell their house will ever be pursued with a garnishment.
