    Answered . My experiience in Florida is that it is quite common for the PMI insurer to ask for a promissory note. If you are contemplating bankruptcy, a note to a PMI insurer is a type of debt that can be discharged in a bankruptcy. Since you live in Virginia you would need to file in Virginia although the foreclosed property is in Florida.
