What Exactly is a Surplus Fund?

The surplus fund is the amount that arises from the difference between the sale amount of the foreclosed home and the mortgage on the house at the time of the sale.

Homeowners are entitled to recover any surplus funds that result from the foreclosure sale of their home (CIVIL CODE SECTION 2945-2945.11).

It is crucial for homeowners to collect all funds that are eligible for from the foreclosure sale so they can accumulate financial help for the next steps in their lives.
