Can deficiency judgment force sale of primary residence in New York?
2 attorney answers
New York is one of the fifty states in which a deficiency judgment can force certain sales of residences, but not primary, unless it applies to multiple properties, in which case if there are 3 or more properties, they can be in different counties, but if less than three properties, they can or should potentially be in the same county, rendering the initial question moot for all practical purposes, this one included.

While your question does not make sense, I think I can safely say the answer is "No."
