Another story, this one in the WSJ, about borrowers walking away from their mortgaged property. The people profiled aren’t incapable of paying their mortgages, they just don’t want to. And in many states, they’re free to do so. Connecticut is not one of those states, unless the law has changed since I was familiar with it (and it very well may have – ask a real lawyer). As I recall, Connecticut lenders’ recourse is not limited to just the property, so they can chase after your bank accounts, cars or, worst of all, turn your account over to a collection agency who will make your life a living hell for the next ten years. Bt as I say, my knowledge is dated, so check with a lawyer who’s up on this area and see what your options are. the morality of the act I leave to you and your conscience.
