THE TENATS DEFAULTED ON THE MORTGAGE AND I WAS UNABLE TO BRING IT CURRENT. IT IS CURRENLY GOING UNDER FORCLOUSE. MY QUESTION IS- CAN THE BANK COME AFTER ME SINCE IT WAS NOT MY PRIMARY RESIDENCE? I NEVER PULLED CASH OUT BUT I DID REFINANCE A FEW TIMES AND PAID OFF OTHER SMALLER LOANS AND CREDIT CARD YEARS AGO.
