Can I walk away from my loan in Arizona without being chased down to pay back later?

I have had it with my loan. The bank won’t help me, even thou my house payment exceeds 31% of what my income is. I am thinking about stopping payments on the house loan due to the fact that I just keep cutting closer and closer to not being able to make the payments anymore. What is the worst they can do to me?

A: Most of the time in Arizona, if the loan at issue was taken out to purchase your residence, the bank will NOT be able to come after you if you default on the loan. However, the rules on this are complicated. You will want to consult with an Arizona attorney on this before you make a final decision. Our law firm handles this sort of matter.
