I read your article on tax consequences of foreclosures and short sales. How do you tell if your loans are recourse or non-recourse? Is it different from state to state?

The only certain way to find out is to consult with a real estate attorney. The rules do vary from state to state. In California, most mortgages that were originated for the purchase of a principal residence are non-recourse.
