Deficiency Balance

A deficiency balance exists when a secured creditor liquidates their collateral (e.g. forecloses a house or repossesses and sells a car), but the proceeds of the sale bring less than the debt owed. In many cases, the creditor can seek to recover the balance of the debt as a deficiency. A deficiency balance is one major type of unsecured debt, generally subject to discharge.
