    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . There are limits on what a mortgage company can claim in a deficiency, and what any creditor can take in executing a judgment. To know precisely how the rules will apply to you requires a full case review by counsel experienced in Idaho law. With the information you have provided, it is not possible to predict what assets of yours are safe (although as a general rule retirement accounts are exempt).

    Best wishes for a favorable outcome, and please remember to designate a best answer.
