Legal Alert - Amendments to Arizona’s Anti-Deficiency Statute Exclude Homebuilders from Anti-Deficiency Protection
May 01, 2014
by Benjamin W. Reeves
On April 20, 2014, Arizona’s Governor, Jan Brewer, signed HB 2018 into law. This bill closes a long-standing loophole that potentially allowed commercial homebuilders to take advantage of Arizona’s anti-deficiency statute, even though the statute was originally enacted to protect only homeowners. In sum, for loans secured by residences that are originated after December 31, 2014, commercial homebuilders will no longer be able to avoid liability based on Arizona’s anti-deficiency statute, A.R.S. § 33-814(G).
